This surcharge is applied for delivery to or pickup from an area beyond UPS extended areas, which are less accessible for pickups and deliveries (domestic and international services).

 Back to Top

Residential Surcharge
UPS provides delivery service to residential addresses as well as business addresses in the United States and Canada. A residential delivery is one made to a home, including a business operating out of a home. For each residential delivery in the U.S. and Canada, an additional charge per shipment applies.

Packages with an actual weight of more than 150 pounds (70 kg), or that exceed 108 inches (270 cm) in length or a total of 165 inches (419 cm) in length and girth combined, as measured to determine their billable weight, are not accepted for transportation. These packages are subject to an Over Maximum Limits surcharge, in addition to all other applicable charges, if found in the UPS small package system.

Special Handling for Undeliverable Packages
Packages rejected by the consignee, or that cannot be delivered due to causes beyond the control of UPS, will be held by UPS. The shipper will then be contacted for further instructions. The UPS service guarantee does not apply to Undeliverable Packages that are returned to the sender. An undeliverable returns surcharge will be applied in addition to other applicable charges. See table above for Special Handling of Undeliverable Packages rate.

UPS Paperless Invoice
UPS Paperless Invoice allows customers using a UPS online shipping system (for example, Worldship®, UPS Campus Ship, and UPS Internet Shipping) to electronically submit commercial invoice data for clearance. Depending on country-specific customs regulations, this may eliminate the need to affix hard copies of the invoice to the shipment and reduces the possibility of errors or shipment delays due to missing documentation.

This service is offered on a contractual basis and there is no charge incurred.
