No, this is all handled by the package scanners they carry in hand. They operate off of commercial cell phone data networks and automatically post package delivery data in the company's computer system. Fedex uses a similar system with their data.

If I remember correctly, it was because of FexEx/UPS "need" for communications that part of the 220Mhz Amateur bad was stolen, uh, re-allocated.
