Delivery costs are surging. We can help!

Flat door-to-door delivery rates for white and yellow telephone books and similar print advertising media are surging due to: 1) Record employment levels leading to higher wages and recruiting costs. 2) Independent contractors reclassified by government agencies as higher-cost employees. 3) Skyrocketing demand for other delivery services such as online product and food deliveries.

A directory publisher or delivery vendor using our Micro-Zone routes or delivery kits featuring targeted delivery, can save 100% of the printing and labor costs associated with every address excluded.

Exclude any combination of bad neighborhoods, apartments, or mobile homes. Keep the good parts of each ZIP, skip the bad parts. Our Micro-Zones facilitate the cherry picking due to being typically 10 times more granular than ZIP Codes. Meanwhile, the comparative simplicity of zone-based routing provides an average of 27.5% less labor to canvass compared to postal carrier routes. Eliminating apartments and mobile homes can slash labor costs and print quantities by an average of 25 to 30%.
