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.
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.
UPS Smart Pickup is available to UPS account holders for all UPS services from any validated pickup location in the U.S.
