UPS to expand pickup and delivery to seven days a week, add more store pickup locations

UPS said it will begin picking up and delivering packages seven days a week starting in 2020, and it will add more store pickup locations to its Access Point network.

Sandy Springs-based UPS said it is expanding its Saturday pick-up and delivery for residential and business locations and adding Sunday pick-up and delivery options, with the seven-day-a-week service starting Jan. 1, 2020.

Competitor FedEx Ground in May announced year-round seven-day residential delivery.

UPS said it will offer its seven-day operation by combining its network with its UPS Access Point retail partner locations and its SurePost partnership with the U.S. Postal Service.

Access Points allow customers to pick up or drop off packages at retail stores that partner with UPS, which said it will add 12,000 more Access Point locations at Michaels, CVS Pharmacy and Advance Auto Parts stores.

UPS said soon, more than 90 percent of U.S. consumers will have an Access Point location within five miles of their homes.
