UPS Mail Innovations, the business mail services unit of UPS, announced that tracking information for its shipments now is available on UPS.com, providing recipients an easy way to track the progress of their packages and mail pieces. UPS Mail Innovations manages the pickup, processing and sorting of companies’ outbound flat mail pieces, bound printed matter and parcels weighing less than one pound. UPS Mail Innovations weighs and sorts the mail pieces and applies the postage before delivering the pieces to the U.S.Postal Service for final delivery.
The new UPS Mail Innovations tracking capabilities on UPS.com provides tracking information for the mail pieces from the time they are picked up for processing to the point at which UPS Mail Innovations tenders the pieces to the USPS for final delivery. There is no fee for this tracking capability. Delivery confirmation information is available to customers who select it. UPS.com receives about 26.2 million tracking requests per day.
“This enhancement to UPS Mail Innovations’ portfolio of services enables our customers to provide increased visibility into shipments as they make their way to recipients,” says John Walsh, vice president of sales and marketing for UPS Mail Innovations. “UPS.com provides an easy-to-use platform for recipients to check on the status of their shipments, further expanding UPS’s overall logistics capabilities.”
