Using a more efficient mailing/shipping method, as well as packaging could reduce spending and make it more environmentally friendly. We regularly ship non-critical items via overnight carrier in much larger boxes weighing up to 50 lbs. Should these had been sent next day air or 2 day could be such a cost savings, upwards of 70% if using second or third option instead of overnight. There could be nothing so critical that it would have to be sent overnight, if they were given these other options as well. The best option of course would be to give the folks the computer programs and they would be able to print off the file information they would need and cut out sending the files everywhere.
