UPS Introduces Application for Blackberry

Logistics Insight Asia – New Products, 4/2/2010

UPS has announced an application for BlackBerry devices that not only ships and tracks packages but also finds the nearest UPS location.

The Mobile App for BlackBerry enables users to track shipments, create shipments using the My UPS address book, calculate shipping rates and time-in-transit and then find the nearest UPS location.

Developed exclusively for use on BlackBerry smartphones, the mobile app does not require log-in for tracking. But when logged in, the application shows a history of tracked shipments and automatically refreshes when the application is opened. Tracking numbers also can be nicknamed for quick reference.

BlackBerry users can use their smartphones to access their My UPS Address Book and Preferences and create shipping labels, which can be e-mailed in a PDF file for printout. Once the label is printed, customers can use the application’s “find locations” feature to easily find a drop-off location.
