Our Print & Mail Logistics Process

Mail.dat / Shipping Details

Our logistics process begins with the detailed organization of your mailing data into Mail.dat files. This step ensures every aspect of your shipment, from size and weight to destination, is accurately recorded for seamless processing and delivery.

Mail Plan Created / Shipping Estimate

Once your mail plan is formulated, we provide a detailed shipping estimate. This gives you a clear view of the logistical efforts and costs involved in your mailing project, laying the groundwork for efficient execution.

Securing Client Approval

Your approval is paramount in our process. We ensure that every detail of the proposed mail and shipping plan meets your requirements, moving forward only when you are completely satisfied.

Scheduling Shipments & Initiation

You're in control with our transportation portal, where you can schedule your shipments and kick-start the mailing plan. This user-friendly platform puts the power of logistics at your fingertips, ensuring your shipments are managed according to your timeline.

Coordinating with Trusted Carriers

Our Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) system takes the helm in coordinating with approved carriers. We guarantee that your materials are transported efficiently and arrive on time, every time, through our network of reliable partners.

Tracking and Delivery Confirmation

With APS, we track every step of your shipment and confirm delivery. You’ll have access to real-time mail tracking, offering transparency and peace of mind that your materials are delivered as promised.
