Agency Mail serves all of South Carolina's 46 counties. This state agency is housed in Columbia and provides guaranteed 24-hour delivery courier service to other state agencies within South Carolina.

AMS rates are by the pound and reflect a substantial savings over those of the U.S. Postal Service, United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (FedEx). Last year they provided the state and the citizens of South Carolina with $3.9 million dollars in cost savings for postage. Using AMS for state agency mailings saves The Citadel money.

Any mail that you wish to send using this service should have "AMS" marked in red letters on the right top portion of your mailpiece. AMS envelope mail will be picked up along with regular outgoing mail from your department. If you wish to send a package through AMS, you can drop this off at the main guard shack at Lesesne Gate. The AMS courier picks mail up at this location each evening.

Not all state agencies are members of AMS. Your may need to access the related links on this page to see if the agency you wish to send mail to is a member of AMS and also to get their correct address.
