You print things. We ship things. Sounds like a pretty good match to us.
This decades-long partnership between King and the United States Postal Service gives mailers a timely, cost-effective solution based out of both Minneapolis and Chicago for managing the transportation process from their docks in to USPS distribution centers nationwide, and ultimately, their customers’ homes.
We delivered our very first shipment out of the Northland District back in 1990, and have remained the leader in this unique niche we’ve carved out with the USPS. We’re proud to serve the mailing community with excellence, driven by IWCO and Japs Olson to be the best of the best.
USPS DESTINATION ENTRY SERVICES
We make sure direct marketing mail promptly arrives at over 200 USPS locations each week. But this service encompasses far more than getting mail from Point A to Point B. We don’t simply provide the transportation service – we manage the USPS destination entry service.
King provides 24/7 pallet tracking and tracing, customized and automated shipment integration and USPS surface visibility of pallet scan information. The customer and USPS integration gives the mail owner easy access to their shipments, so they can keep real-time tabs on their mailings.
We can provide custom reports on a daily, weekly or quarterly basis, depending on specific needs. Our metrics and KPIs include tracking and tracing, inventory control, business analytics and system integration data summaries – all tailored to each client.
And because ThinKING Green is a core value here at King, we’re always working with mailers to develop innovative ideas that reduce our collective carbon footprint. In an effort to eliminate waste and improve reconciliation at the mail facility, we were one of the first USPS partners to participate in mail shipment tracking, the paperless 8125 eInduction process and Intelligent Mail container barcode (IMcb) system.
As a USPS partner, King Solutions offers account-specific, best-in-class destination entry solutions mailers won’t find anywhere else.
For printers, that means:
- Local assets that drive efficiencies others cannot replicate.
- Highly advanced consolidation facility and workshare discounts that lower postage costs.
- Reduced environmental footprint due to consolidated shipments and paperless data transfer.
- Processes designed to deliver mail on time to ensure marketing programs are successful.
