UPS has launched UPS Delivery Intercept, an automated service that enables shippers to intercept and reroute packages before they are delivered. With this Web-enabled package interception service, a shipper simply uses a UPS package application such as UPS WorldShip, UPS CampusShip, or UPS Internet Shipping, clicks on the 1Z tracking number, and requests a reroute. Interception requests also can be made through a shipper's myups.com account as well as via UPS Signature Tracking.
Shippers can access the service 24/7 to request UPS to intercept packages being shipped to and from anywhere in the United States and Puerto Rico. Customers who use Quantum View Notify can receive notification of the requested and successful interceptions. Receivers also can view the intercept status when they track the package on any UPS visibility system.
UPS Delivery Intercept is powered by UPS's Package Flow Technology, which enables UPS not only to map more efficient routes for drivers but also to flag packages for special handling while they are in the UPS network. An interception can even be executed after a package is on board one of UPS's familiar brown delivery vehicles.
With UPS Delivery Intercept, shippers have a number of options once UPS intercepts a package, including returning the package to the shipper, redirecting the package to a new address, holding the package for delivery on a future date, or holding the package for pickup by the consignee.
