“UPS My Choice” Service Makes The Holiday Season Hassle-Free For Millions Of Consumers

With the holiday shopping season about to begin, UPS (NYSE: UPS) is inviting consumers to register for its popular UPS My Choice® service as the company finalizes its preparations for another record-breaking peak season. UPS estimates it will deliver 527 million packages in the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas, surpassing last year’s total of 480 million.

Home deliveries spike in the weeks leading up to Christmas and UPS My Choice helps customers avoid missed deliveries by getting advance text or email messages from UPS that alert them the day before a package is scheduled to arrive. Customers also can reroute or reschedule delivery for a different day, which can keep loved ones from discovering their holiday gifts early. Since its introduction in October 2011, 2 million people have registered for UPS My Choice.

“It can be frustrating to see a missed delivery notice on your front door, especially if you’re anticipating a special holiday gift,” said Myron Gray, president of U.S. operations for UPS. “UPS My Choice is an industry-leading service that gives our residential customers the confidence of knowing when their shipments will be delivered as well as the ability to change the date and location if they desire.”

UPS continues to hire seasonal employees as part of its preparation for the holiday shipping surge. The company anticipates it will add 55,000 seasonal employees across the U.S. to work as package sorters, loaders and driver helpers.
