Salt Lake City, UT, August 27, 2009 --(PR.com)-- United Shipping Solutions (USS), an agent and franchisee based transportation sales company proudly announces its new partnership with the United States Postal Service (USPS). USS, with 2008 revenues of $78 million, has built their transportation sales expertise over the past 7 years by selling both small parcel and freight delivery services for over 50 different transportation providers. USS will now sell the full suite of expedited USPS services including Express, Priority, and Flat Rate products. This partnership is part of a larger set of initiatives from the USPS designed to increase sales and drive profitability. The USPS expedited services represent an increasingly welcome option for shippers burdened with constant rate and fuel surcharge increases by two major competitors who now enjoy significant pricing control over the market.
USS is a highly entrepreneurial organization whose offices are independently operated by seasoned industry veterans. The company's entrepreneurial drive earned them to the #1 spot in Entrepreneur Magazine's "Best in Class" ranking in 2007 and admission to the Inc 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in America in 2009. Robert Ross, USS's EVP of Sales and Marketing, says, "We are very excited about this new opportunity with the United States Postal Service... this is an unprecedented partnership in our industry, makes a lot of sense, and should be very successful for both parties. We believe that our entrepreneurial, sales-driven culture combined with the top-notch USPS service and infrastructure will fill a great need, especially in the small and medium sized shipper segment."
USS currently has openings for new agents, franchisees, sales managers, and sales representatives in some of its major markets.
