Even as the volume of traditional paper mail continues to drop, package and parcel shipping numbers are steadily on the rise as more and more people do their shopping online. This rise in ecommerce means a commensurate rise in the number of packages being shipped from retailers and fulfillment centers all over the country, as retailers search for package delivery solutions to keep up with the growing demand.

The Commercial ePacket Service is the ideal solution for economical shipping of lightweight commerce. It's fully trackable, with delivery confirmation and tracking performed right on the website, and provides free returns on undeliverable items. And it's one of the easiest ways to ship merchandise overseas.

Amazon is the largest Internet retailer in the world, and shipping has been a big part of their strategy from day one. As the demand for fast, affordable shipping continues to grow, Amazon announced an unprecedented partnership with the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) to provide package deliveries on Sunday during the holiday season.
