The United States Postal Service (USPS) has launched a website for small- to medium- shipping companies that will provide them with a list of USPS Approved Shipping and Returns Consolidators that they can use to potentially qualify for discounts and offer other services.
Information on the USPS Approved Shipping and Returns Consolidator can be found at usps.com/business/shipping-consolidators.htm. The site will list the consolidators that are regional or national in scope and state whether they are available for outbound shipments or returns.
Effective September 30, consolidators currently listed will not be automatically registered on the website and must reapply. Approved consolidators must meet the criteria, enter into a consolidator linking agreement, trademark licensing agreement and comply with USPS style guidelines. Application criteria and other information to qualify as a USPS Approved Shipping and Returns Consolidator are located here.
