What is a carrier route mailing?

A carrier route is a “route” within a zip code that a postal carrier walks or delivers mail in.

Carrier routes are used to divide mailing lists into segments. In order to mail by carrier route, you need to mail to approximately 90% of the addresses on that route. So if you want to reach the people around your location, a carrier route mailing is a good option for you. We can presort your mailing this way if you are only mailing to a few routes.

Another perk is that this method can save you money! Carrier route mailings receive a discounted rate on postage. Additionally, it costs less to obtain the list and mail, partly because they are addressed to “current resident.” Keep in mind that a carrier route mailing never goes out First Class; it is a Standard mailing and can take up to 2 weeks or longer to arrive.

These mailings are perfect for Restaurants, Dentists, Retail Stores, etc.
