ATLANTA (AP) - UPS is now requiring photo identification from customers shipping packages at retail locations around the world, a month after explosives made its way on to 1 of the company's planes.
UPS said Tuesday the move is part of an ongoing review to enhance security. The directive will apply at The UPS Store, Mail Boxes Etc. locations and other authorized shipping outlets. UPS customer centers have required government-issued photo identification since 2005.
In late October, a printer cartridge on a UPS cargo plane bound for Chicago was stopped in London after explosives were discovered. The package was later traced to a retail location in Yemen.
