The post office has 2 size flat rate boxes, that can go anyhere in the country for 9 or 10 bucks. They are small, but it seems that there are many people and companies that are using this service. I really dont know why ups wont start up a service like this. Now of course there would be no way that ups could take up to 70 lbs like the post office. How about cap the weight at 25 lbs and charge a dollar more than the post office. This seems like a no brainer since so much of the post office parcels are from this kind of service. This would be a great volume growth for ups. There will always be more profit in larger boxes but it would be nice to start having smaller boxes on car that fit on shelves better and are quicker to deliver. what do others think??? I also predict that within a few years, the post office will make a partnership with ups supply chain solutions for us to deliver all of their parcels for them so that they can focus on bulk mail and envelopes. Is this too far fetched or not. I also predict that within a few years that ups will be involved in delivering mail in europe.
