UPS Using Technology to Offer "Green" Pickup Option to Small- & Mid-Size Customers
UPS Smart Pickup is one of three Enhanced Pickup Options that leverage UPS technology to provide more flexible, personalized customer service. Day-Specific Pickup is for customers who need a scheduled pickup only on specific days of the week, and Daily On-Route Pickup enables a customer's packages to be picked up at the same time a UPS driver delivers packages to that customer.
Regardless of which scheduled Pickup Option customers choose, they don't need to make any phone calls or requests online; scheduled pickups occur automatically. The same driver will stop as scheduled whether a ground, air or international shipment needs to be picked up.
In addition, UPS still provides a UPS On-Call Pickup service for those customers who don't need a scheduled pick up. UPS On-Call Pickup is ideal for customers who ship infrequently; traveling business users, or customers arranging for UPS Returns services. UPS offers later pickup or on-call air packages from more businesses than any shipper.
