The UPS Locator API provides developers a way to include a search for UPS shipping locations into applications. The search is based on type and available services and can find the following types of locations: The UPS StoreÂ® locations, Mail Boxes Etc. locations, UPS Customer Centers, UPS Drop Boxes, UPS Express, StaplesÂ® and Office DepotÂ®, Authorized Shipping Outlets (ASO), and UPS Authorized Service Providers.
The API is offered in XML format. Results can be displayed in two ways: as a list of locations, or combined with mapping vendor freeware to include directions.
