Staying current with all the many changes now happening in the shipping industry can be challenging. Recent innovations at the United States Postal Service (USPS) are creating new ways for your business to ship more efficiently and save money. ShipHawk-connected businesses looking to optimize their shipping strategy further can now take advantage of a new service called USPS Ground Advantage.
What is USPS Ground Advantage?
USPS Ground Advantage offers a dependable and competitively priced way to send packages (including HAZMAT) of up to 70 lbs in 2-5 business days to all 50 states, U.S. military bases, territories, possessions, and the Freely Associated States of the Pacific, with the USPS Tracking® service included.
USPS serves more than 165 million addresses in the United States, covering every state, city and town. Now, as part of its Delivering for America plan, USPS has been making their operations and processing facilities more efficient. Businesses and consumers can directly benefit from these innovations, including the Ground Advantage service.
Ground Advantage simplifies the service options from USPS: it consolidates and replaces the previous delivery services First-Class Package, Parcel Select Ground, and Retail Ground. For returns, Ground Advantage Return replaces First-Class Package Return Service and Parcel Select Return Service. With Ground Advantage, businesses now have a new reliable and affordable option for meeting order fulfillment and package delivery expectations.
