US Mail Forwarding is the most common term of the two. US Mail Forwarding is a service that receives and forwards a requesting customer's paper mail -- correspondence for the most part: letters, post cards, mailers, flyers, newspapers, magazines, marketing materials. This service often comes in handy for those who are traveling about the country or abroad or those who have moved or are on the move. As an example, RV travelers, campers, those who have relocated, military personnel, those traveling overseas.
US Parcel Forwarding is not the same thing as US Mail Forwarding. "The key is in the word, "parcel" Dezra L. Guthrie distinguishes. Guthrie should know, as she is US Customer Agent for myusaparcel.com, a US Parcel Forwarding Company operating out of Southern Oregon. "Parcel refers to packages and mail refers primarily to paper correspondence,"
"US Parcel Forwarding customers are different from those of US Mail Forwarding customers," adds Guthrie. "The majority of our customers are not travelers, but rather live in countries outside the US. They are Global shoppers wanting to get American products," states Guthrie. "That is not to say that US Parcel Forwarding companies don't also receive and forward packages to stateside customers because we do, but the main market we serve is those living in countries outside the US," clarifies Guthrie.
US Parcel Forwarding and US Mail Forwarding may be terms that are often mistakenly interchanged, but make no misunderstanding, both services are very valuable to the customers they serve.
