San Francisco CA shipping company PO Plus owner Steve Martel wants the world to know about his office dog Tramp. PO Plus is an independently owned and operated shipping, packing, printing and business services center in San Francisco. Tramp is a 30-pound female border terrier mix and looks like "Benji".

Steve Martel relates how he first met Tramp in the City animal shelter. He had just lost his two dogs, Kylie and Dannii, which were both suffering from medical resistant diabetes and had to be put to sleep. Tramp was originally found tied to a street sign in a certain neighborhood in San Francisco. She was then approximately 9 months old. Since then, Tramp had joined Steve in going to his PO Plus store.

Steve Martel notes that in just 11 months, Tramp was able to make herself loved by Steve, his employees, and the customers at the store. She loves to greet people and appears to be sad during those days when they don't go to the store. Paul Y., a staff member, says, "I swear that this dog is actually a human. She is so sweet, fun, and kind - I love her!" And customers really love her, proof of which is that they often ask the question, "Is Tramp here?" Steve Martel says that Tramp has become popular in the neighborhood, with people usually stopping by just to say hello to her. He declares that Tramp offers that human-animal experience that people need to brighten their day. Thus, PO Plus now has the "Tramp Stamp" and other promotional products about Tramp. Customers are encourage to inquire about these products.

Meanwhile, PO Plus is a San Francisco CA international shipping company offering reliable and fast package delivery to more than 200 countries. Steve Martel points out that international shipping is much more complicated than domestic shipping because each country has its own laws and rules with regards to commodities entering their country. Thus, the shipping company has to know the rules for international duties, import taxes, brokerage fees and other additional expenses for a particular shipment. Furthermore, there are specialized international document requirements. For international shipping, PO Plus offers the following: multi-carrier shipping options; international documentation; international packing service; and automated airway bill.

Other services provided by PO Plus include artwork shipping, antique shipping, FedEx shipping, DHL shipping, UPS shipping, postage stamps, package receiving, US Postal Service, and package drop-offs.

Shipping antiques is quite challenging because the value of an antique can be severely reduced by careless handling and failure to provide adequate packaging that will prevent it from being easily damaged. The staff at PO Plus have the experience and training for properly handling and packaging antiques. They have different box sizes, packing peanuts, bubble wrap, tape and other materials and tools for packing and shipping antiques.

As for artwork shipping, the requirements are basically the same as for antique shipping because artworks can also be easily damaged. Meanwhile, PO Plus also offers postage stamps, which Steve Martel points out allows customers to avoid the long line at USPS. And for those who need a commemorative stamps, the company can also special order them.

PO Plus is also an authorized shipping center for DHL, FedEx, UPS and the USPS. For the USPS services, these include Standard Post, Stamps and First Class Mail, USPS Tracking, Certified Mail, Priority Mail, Priority Mail Express, Signature Confirmation, Media Mail, Priority Mail International, and Priority Mail Express International.

The company also provides package receiving services. These services include: signing for clients' shipments when they arrive; reordering of packages through the company's package receiving management system; notification through email, text or phone when a package has arrived; and secure and storage of packages.

They also offer several packing services. These include decorative mailers, custom box making, professional packing, and packaging supplies. Custom box making means that the company's box building experts custom-build boxes to fit almost anything. These include insulated containers, single-wall corrugated boxes, single custom boxes, double boxes for extremely fragile items; and foam-line containers.
