Business Delivery Solutions to the United States of America

International Mail To The USA

As a powerhouse of the global economy, and a large country, it is fair to say that the USA receives a huge amount of trade and postage on a daily basis. In fact, its trade routes extend across the entire world, and it has one of the largest economies on the planet. As such, many businesses across the world send parcels to the USA on a regular basis, as doing business with the country forms an essential part of their trade.

As an effective business delivery management company, we offer effective solutions for businesses that want to send parcels overseas. No matter where you want to send your parcel in the USA, you can be sure that we’ve got your requirements covered.

USA Postage Facts

The 2018 Pitney Bowes Parcel Shipping index revealed that the USA parcel shipments amounted to $119 billion in revenue with 13 billion parcels shipped, an increase of 7.4% in line with the growth in the previous year. American e-commerce growth has doubled in the last decade, creating greater demand for package delivery services. Parcels of all different shapes and sizes are sent regularly, and the courier industry clearly makes up a large part of the economy.

Mail volumes are not seeing the same pattern of growth with the projection, after reaching a peak of around 213 billion units in 2006, the U.S. Postal Services (USPS)  experienced a year-on-year decline in mail volume every year since; by 2019, this number dropped by 33% to just 142.57 billion units.

In 2019, the projection of monthly internet users was at around 251.8 million, seeing e-mail and newer communication technologies replacing traditional mail, for the majority of the population favouring these channels of communication.
