  • Commingling:

Commingling mail allows Com-Pak to combine different mailstreams for presentation to the USPS with higher density and lower postage rates. Typically, the larger the mailstream, the lower the per piece postage cost, and so the ability to combine different mailstreams and present the USPS a larger mailstream would result in a lower per piece postage cost. This lower per piece postage, combined with a now better availability of distribution - results in higher postal penetration, higher drop ship potential and overall the lowest possible postage for our clients. Indicia, Meter, Stamp, Profit or Non-Profit - Com-Pak can commingle it all in-house. Unlike most commingling operations, Com-Pak can use multiple CAPS accounts in each pool.

Full Service Certification:

Com-Pak Services, has been approved by the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) as an Intelligent Mail full-service facility. Full Service Certification will allow Com-Pak clients greater discounts on postage as well as other value added enhancements that the USPS is offering to clients using Full Service providers only. As a Certified Full Service provider, Com-Pak Services can extend postage discounts of 3.00/M for First Class Mailers and 1.00/M for Standard Mail with the use of the IMB - Intelligent Mail Barcode.

 The use of the IMB can also provide other benefits including Free "Start the Clock" information and Free ACS information. Additionally, the use of the IMB also provides mailers with other indirect benefits including easier use of the Confirm Service for the tracking of mail through the system.

 To meet the requirements for full-service certification, Com-Pak Services submitted to a thorough process by the USPS that examined Com-Pak's intelligent mail capabilities and Com-Pak's ability to meet all of the stringent requirements as outlined by the USPS.

 Intelligent Mail Full Service is the most significant change in recent history by the Postal Service. As the USPS moves forward with the need to improve efficiencies and reduce cost, Com-Pak has been on the leading edge to bring our customers the most effective way to work with the USPS.
