One of the ways mailers of Standard Mail® can lower their postage costs while improving delivery service is to co-palletize their mail either in-house or through a logistics company. Tray-based Co-palletization (sometimes referred to as “Co-Tray” mailing) supports deeper penetration into the postal system by bypassing a number of postal processing steps. This also allows mailers to benefit from greater postage discounts, better tracking and more consistent and timely delivery of their mail.
Tray-based Co-palletization allows for even a small number of trays that qualify for SCF discounts to be palletized with trays from other jobs and clients to make pallets that meet USPS minimums for SCF entry so they can avoid minimum transportation charges. Mailers are leaving a “surprisingly” great deal of money on the table by not understanding “Tray-based Co-palletization”.
