Presort services enable medium and large mailers to qualify for discounts on their postage by aggregating mail from multiple sources and then sorting it by ZIP Code™ before it enters the United States Postal Service® network. These services not only make it less expensive to send mail, but also can speed delivery by up to one day depending on the destination.
