Newgistics, Inc. is now offering its clients free Carrier Pickup service by the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) for all parcel returns. The company is an approved third-party reverse logistics provider for USPS's Parcel Return Service. Its clients can now offer consumers the option of going online and requesting Carrier Pickup service (also known as Free Package Pickup) at no charge. Previously, they have had to go to the post office to return packages. The Carrier Pickup service provides for custodial control of returned packages from the point of insertion to final receipt of the return. Customers of the Parcel Return Service complete additional mail preparation, sorting and transportation to provide consumers with an easy way to return items using preprinted, prepaid return labels. Consumers then have the option of dropping packages in a collection box (provided that weight restrictions are observed), take them to a post office, or request free package pickup at their homes or offices. Free Package Pickup is available for packages of up to 70 pounds being sent by Express Mail or Priority Mail, Parcel Return Service or Merchandise Return Service.
