Small parcels are generally transported worldwide by private carriers United Parcel Service (approximately 20% of small parcel category), Federal Express (15%), and DHL (10%). Here in the US, much of the remaining market share is carried by the US Postal Service. It is similar in other countries where public/nationalized carriers (estimated 38%) handle the remaining volume.

Because of our expertise, our proprietary software and our proven strategy, our clients often experience rate reductions of between 7% and 11%, and in some cases as much as 34%, in their small parcel programs.
