Implemented on July 23, 2008 in the US. August 18, 2008 - UPS announced significant enhancements to its UPS On-Call Pickupsm service in the United States for air packages, providing customers even more options for today’s urgent business demands. UPS has made On-Call Pickup service for air packages available for the first time in more than 4,000 ZIP codes, and air pickup times have been extended in nearly 6,000 ZIP codes. Together, the enhancements represent improved service for 26 percent of all U.S. businesses. The enhancements were completed last month and provide customers without a daily scheduled pickup even more flexibility to meet critical deadlines. UPS On-Call Pickup now is available for same-day pickup in most parts of the country. A driver also can be called to make a pickup later in the day even after a regularly scheduled daily pickup. Customers can have air, ground or international shipments picked up from their home or office simply by scheduling online at UPS.com or by calling 1-800-PICK-UPS.
