  8. If your shipment includes multiple packages, select the checkbox next to the specific package you want to intercept. Then select 'Request Intercept.'

  9. On the 'Selected Packages for Intercept' page, select the checkbox next to each package you want to intercept and click 'Next.' Note that all the packages will be pre-checked so make sure only the packages you want are marked.

  10. On the 'Packages Eligible for Intercept' page, select the radio button next to the type of intercept you want to request.

  11. Select, 'Next.'

  12. You will be asked to provide additional information to complete the request. Fill out all the fields with a * next to it, marking it as a mandatory field.

  15. There is a fee of $16.40 USD for web-based intercept requests. You will only be charged the fee if the intercept request is approved. You will be notified via email if your request has been approved.

Call the Customer Service Team at UPS

You can choose to call the Customer Service Team at UPS if you are having trouble completing the steps online. The call center is available Monday to Fridays from 8:00 am to midnight EST. To reach a person quickly, press 0 at the start of each prompt.

Contacting a live customer service representative may save you time in knowing if the intercept will be able to be completed or not. Note that there is a fee of $22.90 USD for phone requests for delivery intercepts, which is significantly higher than the online fee. It's recommended you try the online process first to save yourself money. You will only be charged the fee if the intercept request is approved.

Email the Customer Service Team at UPS

You can choose to email the customer service team at UPS to change your shipping address. However, this option isn't ideal if you are in a rush as it can take a while to hear back from the Customer Service team.

  1. Go to

  2. Fill out your name and email address.

  3. Under 'Category,' select 'Sending a Package.'

  4. Under 'Support Topic,' select 'General.'

  5. Select 'Next.'
