USPS Expands Carrier Pickup Program

Share this content:
Seven weeks into its Carrier Pickup pilot program, the U.S. Postal Service has received over 650 requests to pick up more than 17,500 packages in the six participating districts, the agency said yesterday.


Carrier Pickup is a USPS service that 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.


Taking part are the Santa Ana, Los Angeles, San Diego and Van Nuys districts in California, the Arizona district and the Long Island district. Carrier Pickup expands Feb. 1 to city ZIP codes in which carriers operate.
