UPS Domestic Parcel Pickup Options
UPS is the only major carrier that can pick up all package types — ground, air and international — with a single driver that charges per pickup, not per package. That’s the UPS advantage at work.
- UPS Smart Pickup®
UPS Smart Pickup service is best for businesses that may not ship everyday but want the convenience of an automatic pickup. When you process your shipments online by a designated notify time, a UPS driver will be automatically notified to make a pickup at your location.
- Day-Specific Pickup
Day-Specific Pickup is ideal for businesses that only ship on specific business days. A UPS driver will make a pickup at your location only on business days preselected by you. You may select up to four (4) business days per week for a day specific pickup.
- Daily On-Route Pickup
Daily On-Route Pickup is ideal for businesses that can be flexible on pickup times but want the convenience of an automatic daily pickup. With this option, a UPS driver will make a pickup at your location once each business day while making deliveries in that area.
- Daily Pickup
Daily Pickup is best for businesses that ship every day and need the convenience of a scheduled daily pickup.
- UPS On-Call Pickup®
UPS On-Call Pickup service is ideal for businesses that ship occasionally and need the convenience of an on-demand pickup. UPS charges one low fee for the UPS On-Call Pickup request no matter how many packages you have.
- Saturday Pickup
Saturday Pickup is best for businesses that fill orders on the weekend and want the same parcel delivery commitment as a Friday pickup. UPS will collect your package on a Saturday at your request.
