LTL pickup alerts from UPS

UPS has launched Freight Pickup Notifications for LTL, providing a new level of pickup control for the less-than-truckload market in the Americas.

This will increase visibility by confirming when a pickup is scheduled, informing the customer when the UPS freight driver is en-route to the pickup location and notifying them when the pickup is made.

Online orders for LTL freight pickup online will get near-real time notifications to up to five different email addresses, keeping all parties associated with the shipment fully informed.

Beginning in January 2012, this new capability also will be available for customers scheduling LTL freight pickups in UPS WorldShip and My LTL Freight.
