Access Worldwide Featured in Smithsonian’s National Postal Museum
The Smithsonian National Postal Museum is featuring Access Worldwide in their newest virtual exhibition, “America’s Mailing Industry,” exploring the partnership between the U.S. Postal Service and private industry, who together have helped consumers and businesses communicate and conduct business around the world for more than 200 years.
It’s the story of a partnership that helps people shop, ship, deliver, communicate and conduct transactions, gain information, seek entertainment, build relationships, enhance communities and foster citizenship.
Access Worldwide is honored to be a featured partner. Visit our exhibit page here:
The mailing industry consists of all those that communicate with customers and constituents through the U.S. Mail on a larger scale – from direct marketers, to publishers, to nonprofits, to public entities – as well as all the public and private businesses that help prepare mail, such as ad agencies, print shops, software vendors, and transportation providers.
The partnership between the mailing industry and the postal system are a major component of the American economy, as it generates over $1.3 trillion in sales revenue and supports over 8 million U.S. jobs.
“America’s mailing industry is quite possibly the most successful government private sector partnership in our nation’s history,” said Allen Kane, director of the Smithsonian National Postal Museum.
“We are excited to tell this story, as most people don’t even know the industry exists.”
In order to present a comprehensive and understandable look at the complex and vast world that is America’s mailing industry, the museum partnered with researchers and experts from the U.S. Postal Service, mailing-industry associations and private companies to present their stories of success and service to consumers and businesses.
Future plans include the design and construction of an on-site physical “America’s Mailing Industry” exhibition at the museum.
The virtual exhibition offers stories of the mailing industry that focus on how companies, entrepreneurs and multi-generational family businesses – in partnership with the U.S. Postal Service – have helped create, enhance and grow the commerce and communications channels across the United States and around the world.
