DHL Recognizes Store as #1 U.S. Retail International Shipper

Relentless sales and marketing, eternal enthusiasm and dogged determination are what India-born/America-raised Postal Connections of America (PCA) franchise owner Kal Bodawala, 39, credits for his highly successful Manhattan-based store. This past weekend, Bodawala was recognized as the number one DHL international retail shipper in the U.S. by DHL at the Retail Shippers Associates (RSA) annual Expo held in San Diego.

The RSA Expo that attracts several hundred stores owners from across the U.S., vendors and suppliers is the industry’s largest trade show. DHL is the global leader in the logistics industry with a network of more than 220 countries and territories and about 275,000 employees worldwide.

Bodawala operates an 813 sq. ft. PCA store located in the heart of the New York fashion district, at 39th Street and 7th Avenue, where literally tens-of-thousands of people walk daily.

Opening his PCA in early 2011, Bodawala pushed sales over $400,000 in just over 11 months, and has surpassed this sales level in the first six months of 2012. In its first year, the store ranked fifth strongest in the PCA nationwide network and will likely challenge his fellow franchise owners for a higher spot in 2012.

“Our success is tied to delivering exceptional customer service, but we also enjoy excellent franchisee service from the Postal Connections support team – that’s why I chose this business over others franchises,” explains Bodawala.

“Kal has mastered the details of our business formula and is a marketing tiger who promotes personalized shipping and business services in highly competitive New York City,” said Fred Morache, Franchisor and managing director of PCA.

Postal Connections NYC, 200 W. 39th Street, is open 8 to 8 Mon. through Fri. and 9 to 6 Sat. or contact at (212) 840 7445 and
