OnTrac International is a worldwide mail distributor specializing in efficient mail preparation for delivery to over 240 countries worldwide. Formerly EMI Worldwide, the company has assumed the corporate name in order to bring its business to the next level.
“While our company has not experienced what some might call ‘explosive’ growth, we have grown year after year showing a steady pattern of gains in both revenue and in contribution,” Vice President and General Manager Blaine Fyksen said. “It is vitally important for us to maintain financial well-being, while at the same time remaining competitive in the market place. “
OnTrac International began as Express Messenger International on April 8, 1996, as one of three divisions under Express Messenger, Inc. Located in New Brighton, Minnesota; EMI quickly established itself as a dependable and reliable international distributor of mail to more than 240 countries worldwide.
It is the dedicated and steadfast staff that Fyksen credits with making the difference in OnTrac International’s success.
“Each and every one of us strives to perform our functions in a professional like manner with the highest degree of accuracy,” Fyksen said. “I am continually complemented by our customers about the great service they receive from our sales and operations team alike.”
As an approved USPS Postal Qualified Wholesaler, OnTrac International is able to pass significant postal savings onto customers. By allowing account managers to assist in the design stage and address layout, customers may reduce their postage costs even further.
We currently pick up mail from anywhere in the country and prepare it for delivery through a postal authority in the country of destination. We have address correction software in house for customers that wish to have their files corrected prior to mailing. Mail destined to Canada can be sorted in walk sequence order that allows for a higher degree of delivery and to increase discounts.
“The current OnTrac infrastructure will not only allow us to offer international mail and parcel services across a much larger geographical spectrum, but it will help to reduce cost and improve service at the same time.” Fyksen said. “We are very excited and enthusiastic about our new expansion and the unlimited possibilities this presents to us,”
Their customers can be virtually any business sending a minimum of 10 pounds of mail to almost any country in the world. Printers, marketing and advertising agencies, publications, and banks make up the bulk of our customers.
Typical large volume mailings will be over 50,000 pieces, while some have gone over 1 million pieces.
OnTrac is expanding its services to meet the needs of its customers. The three divisions of OnTrac-- Overnight, Messenger and now International-- offer customers a broad range of services and encompass an extensive geographical area. With over 58 million total packages delivered last year, the company prides itself in its ability to give shippers an alternative delivery service and a competitive advantage.
“I think that in the short term, our OnTrac infrastructure offers a great opportunity to expand into the same 8-state market they are currently in,” Fyksen said. “The OnTrac facilities, vehicles and personnel are outstanding. I believe that they will be the benchmark in the industry that sets the standards for all competitors. We are very pleased to be a part of this organization.”
