In recent years, the U.S. Postal Service has increasingly encouraged companies to participate in its Workshare program. That means growing financial incentives for mailers who insert items deeper into the postal stream. In the past, taking advantage of these larger discounts has been difficult for most mailers because they cannot meet the very high volume requirements. As a result, companies that are unable to achieve five-digit sort or DSCF discounts have experienced significant cost increases with the last few rate cases. However, the most recent rate case has at last opened up an opportunity for the increased Workshare incentives to benefit a new group: origin- and destination-entry bulk parcel mailers. This is because changes to the rate structure have finally made it financially feasible for third-party Workshare partners to offer their money-saving services to bulk mailers.
