2-Way Expedited Mailers from ecoEnvelopes named Business Innovation of the Year
The Business Innovation of the Year award recognizes a product that revolutionized its industry. ecoEnvelopes has created new 2-Way Expedited Mailers designed for high-speed automated insertion. According to Gale, Ward, ecoEnvelopes’ President and General Manager, “The new 2-Way Expedited Mailer is the first reusable, 2-Way expedited mail envelope that is automation compatible. It solves an important operational challenge, eliminating the requirement and costs associated with hand-inserting FedEx®, UPS® and USPS Priority Mail® envelopes. With the new 2-Way Expedited ecoEnvelope, our customer is able to double their annual volume from 1,200,000 million to 2,400,000 million per year. The benefit to their customer, a global financial services leader, is a reduction in costs from $3.00 per mailpiece to approximately $0.25 cents, saving approximately $6 million dollars on the increased volume, they benefit from the timely distribution of key financial documents and they receive needed tracking and delivery confirmation.”
Working with the US Postal Service, ecoEnvelopes received approval for this new automation-compatible 2-Way ecoEnvelope for use as USPS Priority Express®, Priority Mail® and Critical Mail® in sizes up to and including 11” x 13”, making the size of expedited mailers more flexible to meet customer needs.
This new solution was enabled through collaboration with technology vendors, mailing operations, outsource mail service providers and the USPS.
