Join more than 630,000 Canadians by signing up for the gift of convenient and reliable package delivery
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 15, 2016 /CNW/ - Just in time for the holidays, UPS My Choice® service is transforming the package delivery experience for online consumers for eligible packages. It is one of the best options for more than 630,000 Canadians, allowing them to choose delivery preferences, reroute shipments and adjust delivery locations and dates. UPS My Choice also adds visibility into scheduled deliveries helping to make sure packages are safe and secure this holiday season.
UPS My Choice members receive a text or email notification when packages are on the way. Consumers can re-direct most of their packages to a nearby UPS Access Point® location for convenient pick-up or to avoid the eyes of children hoping to discover gifts. UPS Access Point locations are local businesses such as grocery stores or pharmacies with evening and weekend hours.
"UPS My Choice gives customers the gift of convenience and flexibility," said Nicolas Dorget, vice-president of strategic alliances, UPS Canada. "UPS is focused on delivering the best service to customers that are more inclined to shop online this holiday season and UPS My Choice is a reliable and convenient solution."
UPS® recently celebrated reaching more than 500,000 UPS My Choice members throughout Canada. To celebrate this milestone, UPS Canada arranged a special delivery for one lucky UPS My Choice customer. The surprise was captured on video and can be viewed here.
