UPS Smart Pickup®

UPS Smart Pickup®combines the predictability of an automatic Daily Pickup with the flexibility of requesting a pickup on demand. Having UPS come to your business only when you have a package to ship saves fuel and can reduce carbon emissions.

Description The UPS Smart Pickup option uses innovative technology to automatically arrange a pickup only when you have packages to ship. When you process a shipment using WorldShip®, UPS Internet Shipping or UPS CampusShip®, the system automatically notifies a UPS driver to make a UPS Smart Pickup that same day to pick up all prepared packages. If a package is processed too late in the day to notify the UPS driver to pick up your package the same day, you can schedule a UPS Smart Pickup for the following day, request a UPS On-Call Pickup®, or find a UPS location to drop off your shipment.
Pricing Flat charge per week      $11.50

  • In the event that the first shipment of the day is processed after the notify time, you may:
    • Schedule a UPS Smart Pickup for the next business day
    • Schedule a UPS On-Call Pickup for the same day, if possible
    • Find a UPS drop-off location

Note: For customers using UPS Worldship 2010 or higher with multiple account numbers, shipments must be processed using a UPS Smart Pickup account number in order to initiate a UPS Smart Pickup.

Benefits Along with predictability and flexibility, other benefits of UPS Smart Pickup include:

  • Convenience of having UPS automatically make a pick up on days you have packages to ship.
  • Reduced impact to the environment by having UPS make a pickup only on days you have packages to ship.
  • If you have a shipment after the UPS driver has made the scheduled pickup, you can schedule a UPS On-Call Pickup. UPS Smart Pickup customers receive one UPS On-Call Pickup for air and international shipments per day at no extra charge for packages tendered at their usual pickup location. (Packages tendered at an alternate pickup location incur UPS On-Call Pickup fees.)
  • UPS Smart Pickup customers will receive a UPS PDF Invoice.
