Port Charlotte, Fla – The Shipping Post, a local shipping store in Port Charlotte, FL, along with their other location in Punta Gorda, have each been ranked in the UPS Authorized Shipping Outlet Top 100 list for the 10th straight year.
“It’s amazing,” says Carol Drayton, owner of The Shipping Post, “when you think about how many authorized shipping outlets there are for UPS in the whole country, it makes us so proud that both of our stores, as near as they are to each other, are able to achieve this status every year. It is a testimony to how hard our staff works and how wonderful our UPS drivers are.”
She also points out that they could not have done it without the help of their regular UPS drivers
Aaron Day in Port Charlotte and Tom Salisbury in Punta Gorda. “These guys are simply fantastic,” says Carol. “They are always reliable, friendly and helpful. We just love them.”
“What I like most about this award,” says Mark Drayton, Carol’s husband, and business partner, “is that this means we are doing enough volume to be able to be offer as good or better pricing than everyone else that offers UPS, including UPS.”
As far as making the list next year, the owners of The Shipping Post are concerned that a recent drop in the pricing of FedEx residential ground services will impact the business they do with UPS. However, Mark points out that this is all good for their customers.
The Port Charlotte retail shipping store offers the public whichever carrier works best for them. Whether it’s UPS, FedEx, DHL or USPS, Mark says, “we can show them which carrier costs less and which carrier is faster. I’m happy and proud to be in the UPS TOP 100 but I’m even happier about the competitiveness between UPS and FedEx. It’s a real win for our clients.”
In addition to serving as an authorized shipping outlet for all major carriers, The Shipping Post, with two locations in Charlotte County, Florida, also provides packaging supplies and services, copying, shredding, in-house and mobile notaries, and a wide variety of other business services. Their two locations are also known for their great selection of gifts and greeting cards.
