UPS Launches Pickup Notification Service for LTL Shipments

UPS has launched UPS Freight Pickup Notifications for LTL (less-than-truckload) shipments. The new feature notifies LTL customers when the UPS Freight driver is en route to the pickup location, and when the pickup is made. Customers arranging their LTL freight pickup online can choose to receive near-real-time notifications to as many as five different e-mail addresses. Pickup Notifications for LTL is free and available to customers who log on to ups.com to schedule their LTL pickups. Beginning in January, 2012, the capability will also be available to customers scheduling LTL freight pickups in UPS WorldShip and My LTL Freight. The feature is available for online pickups that are scheduled in the 48 contiguous states where UPS Freight provides direct service. The carrier offers regional, interregional and long-haul LTL and full-truckload services throughout North America, Hawaii, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Guam, as well as cross-border service in Canada and Mexico.
