Does UPS provide service on Saturday and Sunday?

ANSWER

On weekends, UPS works Saturdays but not Sundays. UPS delivers UPS Worldwide Express®, UPS Next Day Air® Early, UPS Next Day Air, UPS 2nd Day Air®, UPS® Ground and UPS 3 Day Select® packages on Saturdays.

Air packages must be processed and labeled for Saturday Delivery. The shipper pays extra for Saturday Delivery. Note: If the shipper sends a UPS 2nd Day Air package on Thursday, it will be delivered on Monday – unless Saturday Delivery is specified. Pickup service is available for air and international packages on Saturday via a regular Saturday pickup, UPS On-Call Pickup® service or at retail outlets such as The UPS Store®.

UPS Ground and 3 Day Select residential packages are delivered on Saturday in many metro areas at no additional cost. Pickup service for UPS Ground and 3 Day Select packages is available in these same areas via a regular Saturday pickup, UPS On-Call Pickup service or at retail outlets such as The UPS Store. Commercial customers with a Saturday pickup can opt-in to receive deliveries on Saturday at no additional cost.

Please note that UPS Drop Boxes are not picked up on weekends. (For extremely urgent shipments, UPS Express Critical® service is available 365 days a year.)
