USPS Tests Carrier Pickup Service

Share this article:
The U.S. Postal Service is testing a new service called Carrier Pickup that lets customers request next-day package pickups, the agency said yesterday.


Customers make the request through a special Web site. The local post office retrieves that information, and letter carriers are notified of any pickup requests before they begin their routes the next day. There is no pickup fee, because the packages are picked up from the customers as part of the carrier's normal delivery route.


Carrier Pickup is being tested at post offices in Arizona, New York on Long Island and in California in Los Angeles, San Diego, Van Nuys and Santa Ana. National rollout could begin as early as January.
