UPS Freight has launched UPS Freight Pickup Notifications for LTL, a new feature for less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments that provides customers visibility of the pickup process by confirming when a pickup is scheduled, informing them when the UPS Freight driver is en-route to the pickup location and notifying them when the pickup is made.
With this enhancement, customers arranging their LTL freight pickup online can opt to receive near-real time notifications to up to five different email addresses, keeping all parties associated with the shipment fully informed.
The Pickup Notifications for LTL feature is free and available to customers who log onto ups.com to schedule their LTL pickups. Beginning in January 2012, this new capability also will be available for 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.
UPS Freight offers regional, interregional and long-haul LTL and full-truckload capabilities throughout North America, Hawaii, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and Guam along with cross-border service in Canada and Mexico.
