German term or phrase:Portooptimierung
This is from a profile of a company which provides various packaging/mail processing/shipping services:
Angefangen von der Uebernahme von Adressdaten in jeglicher Form, bieten wir unseren Kunden die Portooptimierung, Doublettenabgleich und postalische Sortierung der Adressen an. Hier stehen Softwareprogramme zur Verfuegung, welche durch staendige Updates immer auf dem neusten Stand sind.
So would this be something like "mail processing optimization" or the like?
Explanation: "Optimierung" is a sort of euphemism and really means minimizing (unless they claim they sometimes don't use the minimum cost possible because the service is then better - that could really be optimizing rather than minimizing).
