Why should you use USPS shipping?

The United States Postal Service—better known as USPS—prides itself as “the only delivery service that reaches every address in the nation.” This claim is backed by over 160 million residential, business, and post office box addresses. 

USPS has a reputation for offering cost-effective mail delivery solutions for smaller packages. 

Since the company can reach destinations in every corner of the U.S., it’s the go-to delivery service provider for individual sellers and small-medium retail businesses in the country. 

Today, USPS has more than 630,000 employees and boasts a revenue of $71 billion per year. The company also claims to deliver 48 per cent of the world’s mail.
