Postal Optimisation

Working with the world’s leading post offices and independent alternative networks allows MHI to truly optimise our client postal needs through preferential contracts and consolidated logistics. Multi country routed or multi supplier routed within any given project allows our clients to benefit from MHI’s independence and experience.

MHI's proprietary in house postal routing platform, IRIS, will reduce postal spend independently and efficiently.

IRIS bases its routing on:

  • A query to exclude any provider due to inapplicable access criteria or other restrictions. For example, automatically excluding certain “Periodical Only” based options.
  • A calculation of various postage rates whether determined by item, item & kilo or kilo only.
  • A breakdown of different Points of Posting to determine line haul cost options, including a cost v timing analysis.
  • A review of the minimum access criteria per quantity of items via various routes and vendors. The program then determines if any “over-ride” factors would be beneficial. For example it may be less expensive to pay for a minimum volume even if that threshold cannot be reached.
  • An analysis of the minimum access criteria per physical weight of item via various routes and vendors. The program then determines if any “over-ride” factor would be beneficial.

Of course it takes a team of experienced Account Management and logistics professionals to implement the IRIS routing efficiently. IRIS is at the heart of MHI’s E Commerce Route Optimisation System (E-CROS), and integrates with the latest operational hardware to provide comprehensive route, PPI and label instruction, presentation, docket, report and invoicing output for ‘on demand’ mailings generated through online campaigns and e-commerce.
