The logistics giants, UPS, has announced a collaboration with HubBox to create an easy-to-use application.

The application makes UPS Access Point locations in the US and Europe visible in the checkout process. With the rise of e-commerce’s popularity, consumers want deliveries on their own terms, with the necessity of packages arriving securely when and where they want.

HubBox’s software is easily integrated with most major e-commerce platforms, including Shopify and Magneto. HubBox works with retailers to incorporate the option to ship to a UPS Access Point location service into their website to offer customers convenient alternatives to home delivery.


“This is yet another example of how UPS is delivering solutions to businesses that want to stand out in the competitive retail landscape, while at the same time creating options and improving convenience for consumers,” commented Bill Smith, Vice President of Global Product Innovation at UPS. “HubBox’s click-and-collect solution can integrate seamlessly into a retailer’s website and make it easy for customers in the US and Europe to ship to the best UPS Access Point location that fits their busy schedules.”

HubBox connects to retailer’s label printing solutions in order to help streamline the label printing process. The solution enables businesses of all sizes to ensure they don’t have the IT resources or in-house knowledge to develop these capabilities. Through HubBox, US retailers can provide consumers with the option to ship to over 21,000 UPS Access Point locations across the US and over 17,000 UPS Access Point locations in Europe. The European countries with UPS Access Point locations include: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, France, Italy, Hungary, Poland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal and the United Kingdom.
