The Locator Application Programming Interface (API) provides your applications a convenient and flexible way to search for UPS shipping locations based on type and available services.
With the Locator API you'll be able to find locations such as:
- The UPS Store® locations
- UPS Access Point™ locations
- Mail Boxes Etc. locations
- UPS Customer Centres
- UPS Drop Boxes
- UPS Express
- UPS Alliance locations
- Authorized Shipping Outlets (ASO)
- UPS Authorized Service Providers
The location types will vary from country to country offering the tool.
And with the Locator API, search results can be displayed as a list of locations or combined with mapping vendor freeware to provide driving directions.
This API requires XML/Web Services programmers to code and integrate. UPS provides a developer guide that explains how to integrate and code UPS functionality into your existing business applications or e-commerce website.
