When Choosing A Commingling Vendor

Congratulations – you’ve made a wise decision to save money on your direct mail and get it delivered faster by using commingling.  Your next step is to choose the best commingling partner for your organization.

Here are some of the factors you should consider:

  • Size of Commingling Operation: Some comminglers process all their mail at a single location with only a limited number of commingling machines.  This can lead to significant delays should they be dealing with a heavy volume of mail when your shipment arrives.  It also costs you shipping time should your production facility be far from their location, and leaves you unprotected should disaster strike.
  • Drop Date Frequency: Another factor to consider is how many times each week the commingler drops the mail.  If time is of the essence, you want your mail to go out as soon as it is processed, not sit around until there is enough volume to drop.
  • Pricing: Make sure you understand all of the potential fees you could be charged.  Many commingling companies use pricing tiers for their quotes and charge extra for additional pickups or trucks – even when your mail is standard weight, standard size!
  • Free Mail Tracking: If returns are not coming in as quickly as expected, your ability to quantify how much of the mailing has not been delivered can be priceless.  In addition, a commingling firm with a strong base of historical data can give you the information you need to ensure your mailing arrives within a particular window, no matter how tight it is.
