We manage over two million first-class mail pieces per day. This mail is an assortment of statements, invoices, checks, notices, and surveys. All mail we handle is time-sensitive with critical service level requirements. We use state-of-the-art mailing and presorting equipment to read each address, verify address accuracy, apply the Intelligent Mail® Barcode (IMb ) and sort by ZIP code.
