“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” – Aristotle
“Reputation is all we have in this industry. We have all heard it said. We all understand what it means.
I wanted a place where I could create my own reputation, not carrying the baggage of another.
The journey of maintaining it and its destiny would be mine to write, create and live by.
This journey has been mine and after 11 years in the industry D2D has built a reputation that is an extension of me.
It is me. It is my baby.” – A. Straub

3RD PARTY DELIVERY ENTITY
No one can argue that accurate and on time delivery is a requirement. I have to keep it completely real and honest with this topic.
“Timely delivery is completely dependent upon the performance of a 3rd party delivering entity, also known as our post offices.”
For those of us with first hand experience of this delivery entity, those words would are enough and our stomachs would once again build with acid from the stress induced by the most elementary tasks being treated like a craps table in Vegas. For the rest of you, may the force be with you.
WE NEED THEM. WE RELY ON THEM
They are often inconsistent and unpredictable with their turn times.
We have no control over them and they can make or break a sale, a relationship even jobs/careers.
We are forced to rely on a source that has no managers, no supervisors, no refunds for screw ups, no complaint form to fill out… only you, your misery, your sorrows and a client screaming at you.
(say this sentence w/ a creepy voice, hear an attempt at creepy music playing in the background)
The stories alone we could tell about these adventures are pushing the boundaries of believable, and probably a great best selling book! You are welcome for the idea and I want NO royalties.
We are all familiar with this battle, this mystery, this never-ending struggle to figure out the post offices patterns.
The analytical brain and OCD personality of mine has lead me on a quest to master the art of mail delivery with the ever changing variable of the post offices present.
With the unknown and uncontrollable delivery time variable as a constant, D2D has worked tirelessly to find a solution, to solve the riddle that drives us all mad.
BREAKTHROUGH: Chronicles of Post Office vs Man
During this particular journey of The Chronicles of Post Office vs. Man, I was able to identify some key variables that are directly associated to the infamous unknown postal variables.
It is a breakthrough of epic proportions and I often pinch myself to make sure that this is not some sort of sick postal dream. The equation is real and the formula works. It has been implemented in every job drop and is running smoothly.
STAY UNDER THE RADAR
I am not taking this information for granted. I understand the shadows lurching in the dark are waiting for me to get complacent with my study and curse me with their mystery mail delivery shenanigans.
D2D will remain diligent in its pursuit to appease the postal gods and remain humbly under the radar.
This mail delivery equation is implemented on every job, substantially reducing any and all postal issues since implementation. Knock on wood.
Actual contents of equation cannot be divulged. The sauce will remain secret. Can’t give away the entire kitchen sink. (learned that lil’ saying from you’l).
D2D proactively manages your mail to ensure on-time delivery for your sales event. Our team works hand in hand with USPS, FedEx and UPS to strategically coordinate accurate and on time delivery.
D2D uses a combination of phone calls, detailed shipping instructions, and product preparation for efficient delivery, in addition to constant contact with the weather bureau to ensure on time mail delivery.
Once the mail clears with our on-site postal clerk and leaves our facility, our D2D team goes to work to track the status of your mail delivery and relay the information to you.
A Team dedicated to communicating in-house expectations and building relationships with post office.
