Alternate Delivery Location

Package pickup at one of more than 4,600 locations when it's convenient for your customers.

Designate Shipments to The UPS Store

With the Corporate Retail Solutions Alternate Delivery Location program, a shipment may be directed to a designated The UPS Store® location rather than to the recipient’s primary residence or place of business. The recipient can then pick up the package at a time that is convenient.

This is an ideal solution if you have a mobile workforce or technicians that need to receive packages while they are on the road. It is also an excellent way for your customers to securely receive packages from you. This service is available to CRS clients through a contractual agreement.
