What is Commingle Mail?
Commingling is a process by which mail from more than one company is combined to meet USPS discount minimums for quantity. Savings up to 40% on postage with no additional charge to you. We pick up your mail daily, commingle to obtain the lowest possible postage and deliver to the Post Office the same day. This is possible with our in-house MLOCR (Multi Line Optical Character Reader), of which we are the only one in Palm Beach County authorized and licensed by the US Postal Service.
What is a Multi Line Optical Character Recognition Reader (MLOCR)
MLOCR is a mail sorting machine that uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology to determine how to route mail through the postal system.
The MLOCR capture images of the front the mail piece and extracts the address from each piece. It looks up postal code of each address in a master database, prints a barcode that represents the information digitally, and sorts according to barcode. This all occurs in a fraction of a second as the mail passes through the MLOCR. The mail is then sorted further by barcode sorters that read barcodes to determine its destination.
