Smart pickups for smart business

With UPS Smart Pickup®, you can make the world a little greener, while saving time and money.

The familiar sight of your UPS driver arriving to pick up your day’s work is, for many business owners, a daily requirement–as is the rush to beat the driver’s arrival. But what about those days when there’s nothing to send out?

With UPS Smart Pickup, your driver only comes to your business when you have a package to ship, helping to save fuel and reduce carbon emissions.
 And with UPS CONNECT, Smart Pickup is free for one year after you join.

Automatic Notification Saves You Time

Here’s how it works:

  • Schedule a pickup time through the Maintain Your UPS Account section on
  • Process the first package of the day before a predetermined notification time
  • Your shipping system will automatically notify a UPS driver to pick up your shipment 

UPS On-Call Pickup®

If a package is not processed by your predetermined notify time, you won’t see a brown uniform that day, and no pickup will occur. If you subsequently have a package to ship, you can schedule a pickup for the following day, request a UPS On-Call Pickup, or call 1-800-PICK-UPS® (1-800-742-5877).

Air and International Shipments

Along with predictability and flexibility, Smart Pickup customers will receive one UPS On-Call Pickup for air and international shipments per day at no extra charge (should you need another pickup).

Go ahead and try our Smart Pickup feature and see how you can help us make the world a little greener and save a little green for yourself.
