About this Report

This report is intended to assist buyers of mailing services. Mailing services aid business productivity by reducing the time spent on mailing activities such as labeling, inserting, sorting and metering. Mailing service providers are most often known as presorters, although they commonly offer mail services beyond sorting such as direct mail or fulfillment services. Typical  buyers are government agencies, businesses and educational institutions, whereas providers are typically small regional suppliers. The United States Postal Service (USPS) must certify presorters. This report encompasses mailing activities leading up to the submission of mail into the postal system, including commingling, but it excludes postal services themselves.
