Providing the mailroom services of the future.
College mailrooms across the country are struggling to keep up with the flood of packages ordered by students. As reported by Business Insider, The University of Connecticut sometimes sees 3,000 packages delivered to campus in a single day. The underlying problem is that most college mailrooms don’t have the space to store all of these packages, as they were built in an era when a student might only receive a handful of packages per year.
