19 Million Packages Sent Via Carrier Pickup, USPS Says

Share this content:
The U.S Postal Service said yesterday that 19 million packages have been sent via the agency's Carrier Pickup service since it launched in February 2004.


Carrier Pickup lets customers go online to request next-day package pickups. There is no pickup fee because the packages are picked up from the customers as part of the carrier's normal delivery route. Packages must be prepared with the appropriate postage and ready to go before they are picked up.


To use the service, customers print Priority Mail and Express Mail labels with Click-N-Ship, then log on to www.usps.com to request a pickup of the package. A letter carrier will pick it up at no extra charge during the next day's delivery. Same-day pickup also can be scheduled for only $12.50 with Carrier Pickup on Demand.


Customers can address labels with postage for Express Mail or Priority Mail service online. Postage must be applied to the package before the scheduled pickup. Carriers leave a notification at the pickup location confirming pickup.
