New Flexible Access Service Label
A new co-branded Parcel Return Service (PRS) label which features both U.S. Postal Service® logo and United Parcel Service (UPS) logo was recently launched. Customers who apply the co-branded label to their return packages have the option of returning the parcel with UPS or with the Postal Service™. The redesigned Flexible Access Service label, see below, includes the message, "Package may be given to UPS or USPS". Customers returning a package using the UPS Flexible Access Service have the option of sending the parcel using UPS or the Postal Service™. Customers will find that the Postal Service offers them the convenience of unparalleled access points; retail locations, mail collection boxes, their mailbox or Free Package Pickup.
Call Tag Return Service
- Call Tag Return Service is a return tag (label) option. Consumers shipping packages back to their retailer may receive return labels delivered by the Postal Service™.
- This option allows permit holders to request electronically an applicable USPS® return label for their permit, to be generated and delivered by USPS to their customer (end-user). The customer using the return label can return their package without paying a fee or going to a retail postal unit for mailing.
