CALSPro Pouch Lowers Prices
Posted January 24, 2012 in Membership
The CALSPro Board of Directors is pleased to announce new, much lower pricing and added benefits for the CALSPro Pouch Service with our vendor, Top Priority/CFC effective February 1, 2012. Please note that service charge prices have been substantially reduced, the daily weight allowance has been increased, and the overweight charge has been slashed by over 50%.
The new rates and weight allowances are as follows:
- Twice a day (AM-PM) Service will be decreased to only $375.00/month
- Once a day (Swap) will be only: $195.00/month
- There will be no charge for the first 10 pounds (up from 7 lbs. previously).
- The overweight fee is being reduced to only 64 cents per pound (down from $1.32)
- In addition, the fuel surcharge has been zeroed for the current market price of regular unleaded up to $3.85/gallon, and thereafter .0065 for every ten cent incremental increase.
This represents about a 35% savings over your current base price. A typical company with one office, daily swap and no overweight will save a minimum of $1,000 per year. That is twice the cost of a CALSPro Company Membership.
With this kind of savings, once a day participants can now consider shifting to twice a day, company members can consider adding staff as individual members and also enhancing their listing and everyone can convert the savings into additional advertising for increased business in 2012.
Optional Tracking Feature
CALSPro members will also be able to print an individual bar-coded tracking slip online (as desired) and attach it to their envelope or zipper pouch instead of writing an E – Code. At the 1st sorting center, and each service hub along the line haul, the bar code will be scanned so that you can track the internal movement of your envelope online. This is at no additional cost to the member.
Additional services at very competitive rates provide extra savings throughout the year
Let the power of your CALSPro membership provide additional benefits and savings throughout the year on all of your shipping and delivery needs. Top Priority/CFC offers overnight courier service from CALSPro pouch participants to any California business address the next day (some zip codes are excluded). That’s right, not to just other CALSPro members, but to most business addresses throughout California, eliminating your need to use higher priced overnight services.
You will be able to overnight envelopes and boxes at rates that you will really love.
Envelopes ship for a $5.49 flat rate; which is much less costly than FedEx or USPS overnight. Top Priority/CFC will issue pre-paid, bar-coded stickers for you to take advantage of this special pricing.
Boxes up to 20 lbs. are shipped for only $7.99 ($0.49 for each additional lb. over 20).
For boxes, Top Priority/CFC will issue pre-printed tracking slips (like Fed-ex or UPS) and bill your account monthly. When you have items ready to ship simply call the pouch company for a special pickup or just place the items beside your outgoing bag. The item(s) will be delivered the next day. This program is planned to start mid February allowing for setting up each participant with on-line access. More details will follow in the weeks to come.
