Note: UPS SurePost is available only if you have a contract for this service.
The UPS SurePost services provide the convenience of UPS shipping and USPS-delivery to customers' mailboxes. UPS WorldShip determines if UPS or the USPS completes the final mile of delivery of each shipment.
When working with this service, keep in mind:
The shipments are validated and processed like small packages.
Each shipment must be a single piece forward shipment. The shipment navigation bar becomes inactive.
Four UPS SurePost services are available: SurePost Less than 1 lb, SurePost 1 lb or Greater, SurePost Bound Printed Matter, and SurePost Media.
An Endorsement value is required for USPS-delivery shipments.
Two sub-classes are available if you have a contract and select SurePost Less than 1 lb in the UPS Service box.
The total dimension of the package cannot exceed 130 inches if you select SurePost Less than 1 lb or SurePost 1 lb or Greater or 108 inches if you select SurePost Bound Printed Matter or SurePost Media in the UPS Service box. To determine this dimension, measure the package length and then add twice the width and twice the height.
If you select a UPS SurePost service when the Unit of Measure system preference is Metric, the Unit of Measure is changed to Imperial for the UPS SurePost shipment only.
