Pitney Bowes has announced the expansion of its regional delivery service models to more than 20 major cities across the southeast and southwest USA.
The company will leverage its Designed Delivery Platform for e-commerce shippers, including its national network of highly automated sorting centers and best-in-class technology, to process parcels at scale. The expanded regional delivery services will help brands and retailers reach an additional 100 million consumers within 1-3 days in selected zip codes.
“Pitney Bowes helps e-commerce shippers solve one of the most fragmented carrier markets – regional delivery,” said Gregg Zegras, EVP and president, Global E-commerce at Pitney Bowes.
Pitney Bowes launched its first regional delivery service models in 2022 in the Northern and Southern California Regions for origins near Los Angeles and San Francisco, and the Northeast Region for origins near New York and Boston.
“In the first quarter, regional delivery services helped Pitney Bowes grow global e-commerce volumes by 22%,” said Zegras. “By bringing these services to another 20 major cities in the southeast and southwest, we’re creating innovative ways to help our clients offer fast, predictable delivery to their customers.”
As part of its consultative approach, Pitney Bowes offers retailers and brands a comprehensive analysis of shipping volumes to help determine which parcels best fit a regional service model while continuing to maximize national volume tier discounts. Easy to use routing guides can be configured directly into a client’s shipping system to help with service selection.
Designed Delivery is part of Pitney Bowes’s next-generation suite of services, which makes e-commerce fulfillment, delivery, returns and cross-border logistics easier for shippers by providing unparalleled flexibility, insight, transparency and consultative support.
