Does UPS Deliver on Saturday

Many of the primary carrier’s services offer convenient weekend delivery options for you to choose from—for example, UPS ground service, which sends parcels domestically within the US. The only drawback is that you have to pay an extra charge and specifically request this delivery option when booking your shipping. Saturday pickup services began in 2019 and are now available in 122 countries.

During non-Peak and non-Holiday weekends (Valentines and Mother's Day where the holiday falls on a Sat., Sun., or Monday are possible exceptions), centers will deliver EAM (Early AM) packages before or on the commit time of 9:30 am and Next Day Air packages before or on the commit time of noon.

There is a way to get around this. You can use their Express Critical Care Packages service for urgent deliveries, an exclusive, costly service that you can request time-sensitive shipments. This service only operates within the US.

Ground, three-day Select, and 2nd Day Air service packages are not delivered on Saturdays.
