Mail Supply Chain Strategic Plan released by mail industry associations

Three global mail industry non-profit trade associations have together released a 2018-202 Supply Chain Strategic Plan for Growth & Profitability.

According to the mail industry associations, the plan outlines key strategic goals and actions “to work towards the long-term vitality of mail and ensuring that the mail industry remains at the very center of communication and commerce in the United States and around the globe.”

The three mail industry associations are National Association of Presort Mailers (NAPM), Idealliance, and the Association for Postal Commerce (PostCom), who have worked together for the last year on the project. Together they represent mail industry stakeholders around the world who generate more than 100 billion pieces of mail every year.

In a statement, the coalition said: “The plan recognizes that while mail supply chain businesses may vary greatly, they all depend on the distribution network of the US Postal Service. It sets a framework emphasizing the interdependence of the supply chain members and the need for working collaboratively and improving communications to “achieve the best long-term results for each segment of the supply chain, business mailers, and end-use customers.”
