Negotiated Service Agreement (NSA)

Negotiated Service Agreements are the highest level of discounts offered by USPS, above even Commercial Plus Pricing. For shippers doing more than $1m annually in any or across USPS service levels (First, Priority, Express, etc) you're in range of a Negotiated Service Agreement (NSA). A Negotiated Service Agreement is where the USPS creates rates and services based upon your volume.
Since Negotiated Service Agreements are tailored specifically for your volume, they often save high volume shippers hundreds of thousands of dollars, and in some case millions of dollars.
Are you shipping very large amounts of USPS and interested in discussing a Negotiated Service Agreement? contact our support team at postmen@aftership.com
