Postal Services to the United States of America

The United States of America (USA) has the reputation of being the land of opportunity, and in many ways that’s exactly what is it! With a population of around 316.1million people, that’s almost five times that of the UK, there are plenty of consumers you can target.

With offices and facilities throughout the USA, Asendia is suitably equipped to help you reach your recipients. Whether you’re sending mail, parcels or magazines and catalogues, we have a service for you. 

Facts about the USA


Facts about the USA

Consumers in the USA are accustomed to buying online, but it is still reporting significant growth that offers real opportunity for cross-border retailers. Shoppers in the USA tend to buy from other English-speaking countries or those which are proficient in the language – almost half of e-shoppers have bought from the UK and over a third have purchased from Canada.

A trend can also been seen in the Spanish-speaking markets. In the 2011 census 37.6 million people, in the USA, registered as speaking Spanish. Many of these customers are likely to buy from Spanish language websites. This diverse market helped the USA reach an e-commerce turnover of €213.35 billion in 2013, making it the second largest e-commerce turnover in the world to date.

Both services come as a standalone postal service or an end-to-end service which includes printing and fulfilment of your business mail.

Tips for mailing to the USA

Tips for mailing to the USA

The USA is often held to be the land of unlimited opportunities, and this is certainly true as far as direct marketing is concerned. The market boasts a potentially bewildering array of hundreds of different providers, some of whom are highly specialised. Ranging from owners of comprehensive databases and list brokers to providers of specialist reference files and lifestyle databases, whatever you need you will find it here.

There are around 35,000 B2C and 12,000 B2B response lists in the USA. Although users in Europe often only have the option of selecting addresses according to actual or potential buyers, up-to-the-minute selections in the US make it possible to select buyers in the past three months as standard.

We’ve put together some guidelines for mailing to the USA, which can be viewed here. For more information please contact a member of our sales team who will be able to talk you through the best options for your campaign.
