A re-launched USPS.com is designed to make it easier for direct-to-consumer retailers to find information and services ranging from bulk mail center locations and domestic and international postal rates to certified vendors of shipping software, the U.S. Postal Service says.

A new business section on the site, for example, provides information on shipping payment options and rates, web-based tools for checking the accuracy of residential addresses, and lists of software vendors certified by the Postal Service for providing systems for managing lists of business and residential addresses. Shippers can use that software to confirm which addresses are residential as opposed to business-related, and thereby avoid shipping to residential addresses through carrier services that impose surcharges on shipping to homes, the Postal Service says.

“We are committed to making USPS.com one of the best government web sites, and one of the best web sites in the nation,” says Robert Bernstock, president, U.S.P.S. Shipping and Mailing Services. “These changes help guarantee that our web site is relevant, customer-focused and, most important, easy to use.”
