Authority to Leave (ATL) is permission provided by the sender to deliver a package in a safe location without obtaining a signature.
The benefit of a package that has had ATL enabled can be:
- Your package will almost always be delivered on first attempt
- Contactless deliveries keep drivers and receivers safe
- You won’t need to arrange a redelivery or find your package at a collection point
How are packages delivered when they have ATL enabled?
The driver will look for a safe place to leave the package when there is no one home at the address to provide a signature. If no place is deemed safe, the carrier will take the package to their nearest depot/collection point.
