Ecommerce/Ebay Customers and Shippers like:
- Saturday Delivery
So, USPS and DHL have a program called [email protected] that banks on both carriers’ strengths to provide shippers a faster, less expensive method for sending packages. But there’s a catch…. you had to ship a lot of packages to get involved – 200-500 a day or more.
But according to Mark Taylor, Chief Logistics Offers at Red Roller and Author of Computerized Shipping Systems: Increasing Profit and Productivity Through Technology (among other books,) Redroller.com now offers this as a shipping option to individual shippers!
[email protected] offers
- Saturday delivery at no extra charge
- Includes delivery to P.O. boxes
- Superior residential service with final delivery by the USPS
- Option of standard air service (2-4 business days) or ground(2-7 business days)
Using DHL’s industry-standard air and logistics network combined with the USPS’ “last mile” infrastructure, the system could reduce costs for light-weight packages common in ecommerce transactions such as those conducted on ebay.
