  • Avoid fuel surcharges on parcel shipments;
  • Streamline their acquisition process and reduce redundant contracts across the government;
  • Receive robust savings reports which can be used to demonstrate progress towards meeting OMB's savings targets;
  • Maintain best-in-class delivery service levels;
  • Minimize administrative overhead through use of a dedicated customer service team;
  • Manage inbound, outbound, and intra-agency shipments more efficiently; and
