Typically, golf carts are stored in a volunteers’ garage in the area where they will be used. The person who offered their garage may also act as the seasonal “assistant,” making deliveries from the golf cart.
As online shopping becomes more popular, the need for faster and more efficient delivery services increases. One company that has risen to meet this demand is UPS. In addition to their standard delivery truck service, UPS also offers golf cart deliveries in some areas. How does this work, and what are the benefits of using a golf cart instead of a truck?
The driver who has the golf cart neighborhood on his route at any time of year would be the one to take all of the packages for that area and deliver them to the golf cart garage after completing his Next Day Air items. A seasonal driver may be assigned to transport goods to a number of golf cart garages.
The golf cart delivery service is available in certain neighborhoods in the following states: Alabama, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire. New Jersey. New York. North Carolina. Ohio. Pennsylvania.
The helper assigned to that golf cart (either the garage owner or someone who drives there on their own) will start delivering packages to the neighborhood houses and scan them with a helper UPS handheld device which the UPS driver will provide each day with the packages once the driver has delivered the days shipments to the garage (could be hundreds of packages).
