UPS Smart Pickup - Saves Fuel and Reduces Co2 Emissions

I noticed that UPS has added to its Decision Green shipping options something called UPS Smart Pickups. This service allows UPS drivers to skip a stop at locations that do not have a package to be picked up.

"... simple change ... will save an estimated 800,000 gallons of fuel per year and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 7,800 metric tons. ..."
me insight from UPS CIO David Barnes:
This is a great way for UPS to leverage its technology and a way for customers to be green.
