Keep reading to find out!
Most common mail carriers can deliver to Amazon Hub Lockers, including UPS, FedEx, and USPS, depending on who Amazon works with the most in your area. Some locations even offer Hub Lockers to be used for online purchases from sites other than Amazon.
This entire situation can quickly become rather confusing — so keep reading below to learn what you need to know.
Some Amazon Hub Lockers around the United States actually allow customers to use their Lockers for purchases made online outside of Amazon. However, it’s worth noting that not all locations seem to offer this, though this may change in the near future.
It’s always best to find out if the Locker location that you use normally offers this option. If you cannot find this information at the Hub location, you can always try getting in contact with Amazon Support to learn more.
However, if your location does offer this for customers, you should easily be able to find out there!
While many people believe that USPS cannot deliver to Amazon Lockers, this actually isn’t the case. All common mail carriers that Amazon works with can deliver to Amazon Hub Locker locations. This, therefore, includes USPS.
There are some areas in the United States that Amazon really relies on working with to ensure that packages are delivered on time. Therefore, the USPS must be able to deliver to Amazon Hub Locker locations — and they do!
UPS is another mail carrier that often delivers to Amazon Hub Locker locations. Much like the other mail carriers referenced here, UPS works with Amazon to help ensure that customers receive their packages on time.
Yes, FedEx does deliver to Amazon Hub Locker locations. They commonly work with Amazon throughout the United States — and Amazon relies on them, as well as other mail carriers, to help deliver packages quickly.
Unfortunately, you cannot make USPS stop delivering your packages to Amazon Lockers. While it does appear that many people have had rather unfortunate problems with the USPS, Amazon still relies on the US Postal Service greatly.
When you check out and complete your order, you do not have the ability to choose which mail carrier will be in charge of your delivery to an Amazon Locker. Therefore, you can’t really change this.
You will be able to see who is in charge of delivering your package, however. Once your package is shipped, and once you can track the order, you can go into the “Your Orders” section of your Amazon account to see who has possession of your package.
Some customers in the past have had success getting USPS to no longer be in charge of delivering their Amazon packages. They’ve called Amazon Support to complain, as they had so many issues with USPS delivering their packages accurately.
Eventually, Amazon flagged these customers’ accounts to always ensure that another mail carrier is in charge of delivering the package. However, it’s worth noting that Amazon only seems to do this for those who request home deliveries, rather than Locker ones.
When your package is delivered to an Amazon Locker and ready to be picked up, you’ll receive an email from Amazon with a code and a barcode that you can scan. You will use these codes to then pick up your package at the Locker location.
If you’ve seen that UPS has delivered your package to an Amazon Locker, but you still haven’t received a code, you should first try to be patient. We know this can be rather difficult, especially if you want your package!
However, it might just take a few minutes for Amazon to send this email over to you. If you have not received the email with your codes by the end of the day, then you should definitely get in contact with Amazon Support to let them know what is going on. They’ll then likely send the codes over!
UPS, USPS, and FedEx can all deliver to Amazon Hub Locker locations. According to Amazon, every major or common mail carrier that they work with has the capacity to deliver to any Amazon Locker location. Some Hub Locker locations even offer packages from other sites to be delivered there!
