UPS Access Point Network proposes merchants deliver products to special UPS points, where customers can pick up packages when it's best for them. Customer can select such point during checkout. UPS Access Point Navigator allows you to use UPS Access Point delivery in your Magento system. You can create different shipping methods for Access Point delivery and show them in checkout. The extension works with standard Magento checkout, or with one of one page checkout extensions. If a customer selects one of the  Access Point shipping methods, a special UPS popup opens. This popup contains a map of the Access Points near the customer's address. The customer can then choose which one they would like to use. The address of this Access Point will substitute the customer's original shipping address in the shipment. 

This extension allows you to select between two Access Point services: "Hold for Pickup at UPS Access Point" and "UPS Access Point Delivery". You can create numerous shipping methods. For each shipping method you can set static or dynamic price, UPS service, allowed countries. In case of dynamic (UPS) price you can use negotiated rates. If you enable Time-in-Transit, the number of transit days of delivery for selected UPS service will display. 
UPS Access Point Navigator based on UPS Locator API and UPS Locator plugin.
