The United States Postal Service (USPS) will launch a new website Sept. 30 for small- to medium- shipping companies. The site will assist small- to medium-level shippers with a list of USPS Approved Shipping and Returns Consolidators that they can use to potentially qualify for discounts and offer other services.
Information on the USPS Approved Shipping and Returns Consolidator, can be found at: usps.com/business/shipping-consolidators.htm, The new site will list the consolidators that are regional or national in scope and if they are available for outbound shipments or returns.
Effective Sept. 30, consolidators currently listed will not be automatically registered on the new website and must reapply.
Approved consolidators must meet the criteria, enter into a consolidator linking agreement, trademark licensing agreement and comply with USPS style guidelines. Application criteria and other information to qualify as a USPS Approved Shipping and Returns Consolidator is located at PostalPro: https://postalpro.usps.com/approved_shipping_and_returns_consolidators
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
