OneSite(R) Internet Portal And Co-Palletization Tray Solution Receive Mailing And Fulfillment Service Association Awards

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 24, 2009-- R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company (NYSE:RRD) announced today that its OneSite Internet portal has been selected for the Chairman's Website Award and its co-palletization tray solution has been recognized with the Mailing Industry Ingenuity Award by the Mailing and Fulfillment Service Association (MFSA).

RR Donnelley’s innovative OneSite broke new ground by becoming the first Internet portal to combine post-production shipment tracking and postal network tracking into one synchronized report. Publishers, catalogers and other mailers use OneSite to track their mailings as the finished mail pieces leave production facilities, travel through RR Donnelley’s logistics network and are processed by the United States Postal Service. The portal works with all classes of mail, helps mailers evaluate the effectiveness of their campaigns, provides advanced notice prior to delivery and offers decision-support through a variety of detailed reports.

RR Donnelley’s co-palletization tray resources help direct mailers maximize postal discounts by assembling trays of letter mail from different customers onto consolidated pallets that will be delivered to USPS. The company provides this service in two consolidation centers, allowing more highly targeted direct mailings to be cost-effectively drop shipped deeper into the postal system.

“These award-winning solutions are characteristic of the capabilities that we have built to deliver value across the full breadth of the supply chain,” said John Paloian, RR Donnelley’s Chief Operating Officer. “RR Donnelley’s integrated print management solutions uniquely help customers lower the total cost of ownership, reduce cycle time and manage communications with web-enabled reports. We are delighted that our Logistics professionals have been recognized for these industry best practices.”

Based in Alexandria, Virginia and made up of more than 650 companies, the MFSA is the national trade association for the mailing and fulfillment services industry.
