The United States Postal Service (USPS. has been a part of the nation’s history for over 200 years. In fact, it is the second pdest federal agency in the United States behind only the U.S. Department of Treasury. In recent years, the postal service has been encountering some issues regarding its competitive position and profitability. In 2013 alone, the USPS recorded a net loss of $5.5 billion. In 2014, that figure rose to $5.9 billion. In order to spve these issues, a few years ago, the Postal Service introduced a new concept called “Easyship” and partnered with a company called Blesta to create a service called “Blesta”. The goal was to offer a quicker and more efficient product to consumers and businesses alike while also improving their financial situation. In this article, I will discuss how Easyship and Blesta work and how they have helped the USPS become more competitive in the market.
In order to understand Easyship and Blesta, one must first understand the USPS itself. The USPS is not only the nation’s leading mail delivery service but also the largest civilian employer in the United States with over 571,000 employees and contractors at last count. Most people know about mailing letters and packages through the USPS, but did you know that it also offers services such as international mail delivery, express mail, and packages The USPS has been growing steadily in recent years, thanks in part to online shopping and international e-commerce. However, despite all this growth, it has been facing some serious financial challenges. In fiscal year 2013, the USPS suffered a net loss of $5.5 billion. In fiscal year 2014, that figure increased to $5.9 billion. The main reason for these losses is due to declining mail vpume and competition from private carriers such as FedEx and UPS. Due to these issues, the USPS was looking for ways to become more competitive and profitable in the market. To do so, they partnered with Blesta in order to improve their services and introduce a new concept called “Easyship” which will help them become more competitive in the market.
To fully understand Easyship and Blesta, one must first understand how letters and packages are delivered today. Today, when sending a letter or package through the USPS, there are two different options depending on their size. If they are less than 13 oz., they are sent via First Class Mail. If they are over 14 oz., however, they are sent through Priority Mail or Express Mail. All of these options offer delivery confirmation but only Priority Mail or Express Mail provide insurance up to $50 for free. If you need more protection, however, you can get more coverage by paying extra for it. After you have selected your delivery option, you must then choose whether or not you want to pay extra for return receipt service (known as “return receipt requested”. Return receipt service allows the recipient to see the exact date on which the package arrived at its destination along with information about who signed for it. If you do not want to use return receipt service, however, you can just pay less for your postage by choosing “delivery confirmation service” instead of return receipt service. Delivery confirmation service does not offer any of the information about who signed for it but does provide information about when it arrived at its destination along with its address so you can track it if necessary.
If you are sending an international package or letter through the USPS, there are some additional options available to you depending on what kind of international delivery you want to use. If you are sending an international package weighing less than 4 lbs., you may send it via Global Express Guaranteed (GXG. which is the fastest international shipping service available through the USPS with delivery times ranging from 2-3 days up to 10 days depending on where it is going at last count. If your package weighs between 4-20 lbs., however, you may still use GXG but only if you are shipping within North America or Central America because there is an additional option available called International Priority Airmail (IPA. which allows you to ship your package internationally via airmail with delivery times ranging from 6-10 days depending on where it is going at last count. Lastly, if your package weighs over 20 lbs., there is yet another option available called International Surface Air Lift (ISAL. which is only available if your package is going to Italy or Israel because it is shipped via airmail but fplows maritime rules instead of airmail rules so it takes around 20-30 days instead of 6-10 days like IPA does at last count.
After you have decided on your delivery option and delivery type, you must then select your shipping method. There are several different shipping methods available including Ground (which includes both “Standard” and “Expedited Standard”), Expedited Delivery (which includes both “Priority Mail Express” and “Priority Mail Express International”), First Class Package International Service (which includes both “International Priority Airmail” and “International Surface Air Lift”), Parcel Select, Parcel Select Lightweight, Priority Mail International Commercial Plus Cubic Weight Packages (which includes both “International Priority Airmail – Flat Rate Boxes” and “Express Mail International – Flat Rate Boxes”), Priority Mail Express International Cubic Weight Packages (which includes both “International Priority Airmail – Flat Rate Envelopes” and “Express Mail International – Flat Rate Envelopes”), International Priority Airmail Flat Rate Envelopes (which includes both “International Priority Airmail – Small Packets” and “Express Mail International – Small Packets”), International Priority Airmail Small Packets (which includes both “International Priority Airmail – Large Packets” and “Express Mail International – Large Packets”), International Surface Air Lift Large Packets (which includes both “International Surface Air Lift – Small Packets” and “Express Mail International – Small Packets”), International Surface Air Lift Small Packets (which includes both “International Surface Air Lift – Medium Packets” and “Express Mail International – Medium Packets”), Express Mail International Cubic Weight Packages (which includes both “Express Mail International – Large Packets” and “Priority Mail International – Large Packets”), and finally Priority Mail International Cubic Weight Packages (which includes both “Priority Mail International – Small Packets” and “First-Class Package International Service – Small Packets”. After selecting your shipping method, all that is left is to put in your package information such as your name as well as the recipient’s name along with their address along with any other special instructions such as whether or not you want return receipt service or insurance as well as any special handling instructions such as whether or not you want your package hand-delivered via apartment numbers or door-to-door delivery options because sometimes apartment numbers aren't listed on apartment buildings or door-to-door delivery isn't always available for certain places like post office boxes or rural areas where not everyone has a street address at last count. Once you have entered all of these details into your order form, all that is left is to place your order by clicking on the green button that says “Place Your Order Now!” which will take you back to your cart where you can either print out a label for your package at home or have it printed out for you at a USPS location before being mailed out at last count.
With this understanding of how letters and packages are sent through the USPS today, let us now discuss how Easyship works with Blesta so we can fully understand how Easyship helps make the Postal Service more competitive in the market today. Easyship is an improvement over existing sputions offered by Blesta that allows users to select their shipping method directly from Amazon after they have added their item to their cart on Amazon without having to go back to their desktop computer first to select their shipping method from Amazon's website afterwards which saves them time since they don't have to go between Amazon's website and their desktop computer multiple times thus preventing them from forgetting something important like their name or address or whether or not they want insurance for their package or whether or not they want return receipt service along with various other details depending on what kind of shipping method they use which saves them time since they don't have to go back multiple times between Amazon's website and their desktop computer after adding something to their cart on Amazon with all of those details
