INDIANAPOLIS — The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) today recognized Carson mailer Lakeshore Learning Materials for innovation and industry best practices, one out of 14 companies total nationwide. The awards were presented on the final day of the National Postal Forum, the largest annual trade show in the country for the mailing industry, which was held this year in Indianapolis.
The USPS Area awards were presented to customers in two categories: the Mailing and Digital Innovation Award, recognizing customers who demonstrate creativity by finding new methods to use the mail to drive significant business results and mail growth; and the Shipping and eCommerce Innovation Award, honoring customers who have used industry best practices to implement new technologies to maximize efficiencies, and to convert requests for purchase and fulfillment into package volume reflecting significant business results. There were two winners in each of the Postal Service’s seven geographic Areas across the nation: Capital Metro, Eastern, Great Lakes, Northeast, Pacific, Southern and Western.
Lakeshore Learning Materials received the Pacific Area Mailing and Digital Innovation Award. Lakeshore Learning Materials, founded in 1954, has grown from a brick-and mortar store to a leading developer and retailer of top-quality educational materials for early childhood programs, elementary schools and homes nationwide. Today, the company has a thriving eCommerce business, a national sales division, catalogs, and 60 retail locations across the country.
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
