While most organizations rely heavily on electronic communications, many still receive daily deliveries of postal mail, affectionately dubbed snail mail. Don’t get us wrong, the US Postal Workers do a great job delivering mail. According to the United States Postal Service (USPS):
- Each day the Postal Service processes and delivers 187.8 million pieces of First-Class Mail.
- On average, the Postal Service processes 20.2 million pieces of mail each hour, 336,649 each minute and 5,611 each second.
- the Postal Service processes and delivers 484.8 million pieces of mail each day.
That’s a lot of traditional paper mail being handled every day. How much of that mail ends up in mailrooms at business and government organizations?
According to the USPS, millions of businesses use postal mail. The vast majority of these have mail center-type operations, including thousands of large, complex corporate mail center operations.
