About this Report

This report is intended to assist renters of mailing systems and meters. While all mailing systems meter mail in preparation for entry into the postal system, the specific functions of different systems vary depending on the size and type of machine. Large mailing systems may also fold, seal, sort and customize mail. The main renters of mailing systems and meters are government agencies and healthcare firms. This report does not include mailing scales, folders, inserters, labelers or mail sorters not attached to a mailing meter. This report excludes mailing meter purchases because, according to federal law, mailing meters can only be rented or leased in the United States, never owned.
