    • Understanding the UPS Ground Saver Label

      UPS Ground Saver labels have a unique design, distinguishing them from standard UPS labels, especially when the United States Postal Service (USPS) is involved in the final delivery stage. These labels feature two distinct tracking numbers and multiple addresses, which might initially seem perplexing. Here’s a detailed explanation of each component on a Ground Saver label:

      1. Your Ship From Address: This is the address from where the package is initially shipped.
      2. Local Post Office Address: This is the destination address for UPS to hand over the package to the USPS if involved in the delivery process.
      3. UPS Tracking Number: Used to track the package’s journey while it is in UPS’s custody.
      4. Recipient’s Delivery Address: The final destination of the package, i.e., your recipient’s address.
      5. USPS Tracking Number: Assigned for the last-mile delivery. The Ground Saver label includes this USPS tracking number regardless of whether USPS completes the final delivery or not. If USPS is responsible for the last-mile delivery, this tracking number becomes active on the USPS website.
      Each element of the label plays a crucial role in ensuring your package is accurately tracked and efficiently delivered, whether it’s through UPS entirely or with USPS’s assistance for the final leg of the journey.

Insurance and Liability:

  • Carrier Liability: Comes with $100 of carrier liability, applicable only when UPS handles the package.
  • Additional Insurance Options: ParcelPath offers third-party insurance for comprehensive coverage throughout the shipment journey.

Important Considerations:

  • Delivery Destinations: Exclusively for residential addresses; commercial destinations are not eligible.
  • Service Limitations: Specific size and weight restrictions apply, with penalties for non-compliance.
  • Signature Confirmation: Not available for UPS Ground Saver packages.
