This offer also includes USPS Connect Local Mail, an affordable first class mail option for documents up to 13 oz. Businesses can pick up USPS Connect Local packages and mail at the designated postal facility’s receiving dock or take advantage of free en-route pickup when their carrier delivers their mail.

Businesses should consult with USPS officials to identify entry points and options that work best for them. Most packages will be delivered next day within a specified wide area.
