Postage and freight can account for more than 50% of a project’s cost in today’s market space. To reduce these costs and maintain in-home mail dates and package deadlines we introduce an innovative system for handling mail and logistic freight that incorporates cutting-edge distribution and price models. With PLUS, Midstates Group delivers cost-effective postage and freight handling to customers nationwide.
At Midstates we utilize our PLUS (Postal & Logistics Unified System) to ensure you receive the most effective postal optimization for your needs. We analyze all of your options and propose the best solution. Often times it makes sense to utilize the Drop Ship program and take a Destination Entry Discount. With this model you pay a reduced postage amount from origin postage and then you will have some postal freight costs. Please see the details below to understand it better.
Destination Entry Discount - A postage discount for depositing mail at specific postal facilities (e.g., delivery unit or network distribution center) that are closer to the final destination of the mail.
Drop-Shipping (another term for Destination Entry) is bypassing the origin post office and mailing deep into the mail processing stream, to the optimal United States Postal Service (USPS®) processing facility, helps you capture postage discounts while improving delivery predictability by streamlining the process. However - there is a cost (Postal Freight) to truck or freight the product to that processing facility.
Postal Freight is the cost to move this product to the processing facility resulting in a postal savings to you from Origin Postage.
