Impact of the Coronavirus on our Service Guarantee
Within the U.S., UPS is designated among the government’s critical infrastructure and, therefore, continues to operate. The Novel Coronavirus pandemic has created unprecedented complexities, which have required us to constantly reassess our operations. Our highest priority is to help ensure the health and safety of our employees, customers, and suppliers.
Suspension of Service Guarantee
Effective March 24, 2020 and until further notice, the UPS Service Guarantee is suspended for all U.S. origin shipments (U.S. Domestic and International) at any service level. As the effects of the Coronavirus impact our infrastructure, we will continue to seek guidance from local, state, and national government entities to ensure that we fully align with their regulations while continuing to meet the service levels you have come to expect. We are committed to continue operating globally except where constrained by government restrictions.
Prior to shipping, please check to see if your recipient’s location is open, since business opening hours may have changed due to local restrictions. If the location is closed, we will hold your shipment and attempt to complete the delivery at a later date if the receiving location has indicated to UPS that it will re-open within 9 days. However, if the location is closed indefinitely, UPS will return the package to the sender. Please continue to visit this site for the most up-to-date information regarding the impact of Coronavirus on UPS services.
For your convenience, The UPS Store and UPS Access Point locations all provide access to your vital deliveries. Where available, you can sign up for free UPS My Choice which enables you to provide more specific delivery instructions such as where to leave deliveries, or redirect deliveries to another location, and also provides you with the ability to receive delivery notifications.
Signature Suspension Notification
To help promote the safety of our employees and customers, UPS signature guidelines are being temporarily adjusted for all shipments within the United States, with the exception of Adult Signature Required (ASR) shipments. Our goal is to minimize physical interactions and, therefore, customers may be asked to verify a recipient’s identity in a manner in lieu of a physical signature.
Service guarantees are subject to change.
