Physical mail is a complexity that every growing business needs to have a solution for, especially in a world that’s gone remote. As the operational overhead associated with mail increases, many modern businesses decide to seek outside help with this overhead — oftentimes, this outside help can come in the form of a corporate mailing service.
In this article we’ll discuss two types of corporate mailing services — those for sending business mail and those for receiving business mail.

WeWork is a global network of real estate properties providing office space and coworking solutions.
WeWork does not explicitly provide any corporate mailing services, but you can set up a coworking lease with them to gain access to an address and mail service. Once that coworking lease is in place they will forward your mail periodically to another address of your choice. This is a great solution for teams that plan on going into a coworking space periodically and do not need their mail handled remotely.
If you don’t plan on ever traveling to your address, WeWork could be an expensive and cumbersome solution. Additionally, mail forwarding is not the best option for all businesses, especially those that are remote or hybrid and have no central location to send their mail.
WeWork pricing varies significantly by location.
