Quebecor World Logistics First in Industry to Run Mixed Class Co-Mail to Help Customers Reduce Postal Costs
MONTRÉAL—2/13/2008—Quebecor World Logistics (TSX: IQW) is the first in the industry to offer its customers mixed-class co-mail that combines Periodical and Standard class mail pieces into a single offline co-mail offering. This gives our customers improved flexibility of a pool but also the industry’s quickest turn-around time, unattainable in a single class co-mail run. The mixed-class, short-run pool conducted at Quebecor World Logistics’ Bolingbrook, IL co-mail facility will now become part of QWL’s superior co-mail process, creating enhanced value to Quebecor World’s quality print product.
Customers using Quebecor World Logistics’ mixed class co-mail solutions in combination with additional mailing optimization programs are able to realize savings on their overall mailing costs while improving delivery times.
Christy Martin, Distribution Director at Penton Media, commented on this first mailing of Periodical and Standard class mail pieces by Quebecor World, “We view mixed-class co-mail as working to our mutual advantage - with the possibility of allowing for even faster turn-around time and more frequent pools. We are privileged to be the first publisher to participate in QWL’s innovative co-mailing environment, particularly at this time when the United States Postal Service is making significant changes in how they process and handle mail.”
“Quebecor World Logistics is pleased to be the first in the industry to offer this new service. The process of combining Periodical and Standard class mail into the same co-mail pool is a fundamental breakthrough in advancing the efficiency in mailing services. Coupled with our soon to be deployed new co-mail services in the Northeast, we are pleased to pioneer the highly anticipated mixed co-mail process. This will provide the shortest turn-around time in the industry and additional flexibility to our valued customers, further solidifying our leadership in the co-mail industry,” said Val Scansaroli, SVP of Mailing Services at Quebecor World Logistics.
