    The leading shipping service for top online retailers in North America plans to introduce a service that will allow consumers to pick up their online orders from lockers in retail locations.

    United Parcel Service of North America Inc. began testing the service, called the UPS Access Point network, in July in New York City and Chicago, and plans to roll it out early next year, Alan Gershenhorn, chief commercial officer, told reporters today at a briefing in Louisville, KY.

    It seems like this is nothing new. Maybe just an expansion.

    Knew a driver once who used his front enclosed porch as a drop off site ( pre-DIAD ) , he spent his day going around just leaving info notices with his address .

    Lol... yeah I've known about this for awhile.

    They want to try to set up access points at bodegas and laundromats around here in NYC.

    I can't wait.
