For office managers and shipping personnel, determining correct postage and package weights can be tedious. Add to that the countless trips to the post office, and the frustration builds. 

“Getting packages out into the mail can be very time-consuming and cumbersome for small business owners,” explained Amy Bertolino, Pitney Bowes senior product manager.

How it works

According to Bertolino, the shipping platform offers practical solutions to help small businesses succeed without sacrificing quality.

“PitneyShip allows users to set up carrier pickup from USPS, FedEx, or UPS in just a few clicks,” she said, adding that the pre-negotiated, discounted rates users get from USPS and UPS save them significant dollars off retail shipping label rates.

“In addition, address validation ensures the package is being sent to a deliverable address, avoiding return packages and wasted postage fees,” Bertolino said. “Plus, a scheduled carrier pickup saves time.”

Shipping made simple

PitneyShip software allows customers to compare prices and delivery services across carriers, in addition to buying and printing shipping labels and postage, scheduling pickups, and tracking packages. 

“It’s simple and easy to use with the PitneyShip Cube, to print professional shipping labels with an integrated scale to accurately weigh packages,” Bertolino said. “All users have access to the companion mobile application, which allows users to track packages or create labels when they are away from their desk.”

A changing landscape

Mailing has greatly decreased for businesses in the digital age, while shipping has increased significantly, especially during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. And according to Pitney Bowes’ most recent Parcel Shipping Index, there were even significant shifts in carrier dynamics and consumer behaviors in 2023.

Of the four largest carriers (USPS, Amazon Logistics, UPS, and FedEx), only Amazon Logistics grew volumes year-over-year, and by a whopping 15.7%. One year after passing FedEx in parcel volumes, Amazon Logistics has exceeded UPS, and is gaining momentum on market leader USPS.

A name you can trust

With more than 100 years of expertise in innovation, Pitney Bowes is a resource business owners can turn to with confidence.  

The global shipping and mailing company works with more than 90% of Fortune 500 companies, and recognizes not all customers require the same volume of shipping.

“PitneyShip is backed by Pitney Bowes, a trusted name in the shipping and mailing industry with decades of experience,” Bertolino noted. “Whether a business is just starting out or experiencing rapid growth, PitneyShip offers scalable shipping solutions to meet their evolving needs. From shipping a few packages a week to managing high-volume orders, the platform can accommodate businesses of all sizes.”
