UPS SurePost®

The UPS SurePost® services work with the United States Postal Service to provide an economic solution for residential, ground delivery.

Use SurePost® for shipments to U.S. PO Box addresses, domestic shipments (from the U.S. 48 to any of the 50 states), U.S. military (APO, FPO, DPO) shipments, and shipments to U.S. territories.

Before enabling this option in ShipEngine, contact your UPS representative to ensure your contract allows SurePost® shipments.
