UPS Leads Industry with App for BlackBerry

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

Available tomorrow for free downloading at www.blackberry.com/appworld,
the new UPS 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.

“The UPS Mobile App for BlackBerry is a
first-to-market solution for on-the-go professionals that’s arriving
just in time for the busy holiday shipping season,” said Jordan
Colletta, vice president of customer technology marketing at UPS.

Developed
exclusively for use on BlackBerry smartphones, the new UPS Mobile App
doesn’t 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. UPS 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 UPS drop-off
location.

The UPS Mobile App supports the BlackBerry Storm,
BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Tour and the BlackBerry Curve 8900. For
more information on the new application, users can visit www.ups.com/blackberry.
