SMART PARCEL ™
Challenges – and opportunities – are causing mail centers and fulfillment/logistics providers to rethink their process in order to best serve their clients. We believe the solution to the challenges of both the mail center and the shipper are found in SMARTParcel™.
COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus)
First of all, thank you! Thank you for your continued trust in The Mail Group to meet your international and domestic delivery needs! I want you to know that we are fully operational and our amazing team is working around the clock to implement solutions allowing us to get your materials delivered through this difficult time. The dramatic changes unfolding within the logistics environment (literally hour by hour) is quite the challenge, but we are succeeding! The roots of this success come from the core of our culture and what differentiates The Mail Group from our competitors: innovation, creativity, experience and a never-ending drive to meet our customers’ needs regardless of the circumstances. I recognize that mail delivery is essential to your business and I have asked all sales executives to keep the dialog with you even more constant than normal. I encourage you to do the same. We view ourselves as your partner, not just your vendor, so if you have any questions or updates regarding your company or volumes, please contact your sales associate or customer service. We will get through this together! I look forward to happier times and seeing you in person on the other side of this unprecedented, global event. Thank you and stay well! Bill Sickenberger
What Is SMARTParcel ™ & How can it help you?
Whether your business depends on your Mail Center or on Commercial Shipping, you’re aware of one undeniable fact: developing an effective and efficient operation today is a double-edged sword. On one hand, the USPS and carrier rates are continuing to rise, whether you’re sending to residences or to other businesses, light or heavy packages, and no matter what zone you’re shipping to, your business will be affected.

Whether you search for answers for a Mail Center, for a shipping environment or both, SMARTParcel may be your best decision! SMARTParcel™ is a MAIL Group product. We partner with and power SMARTParcel with Stamps.com®, a leading provider of Internet-based postage service.
