What is Authority to Leave?

Depending on the Sender, and depending on the item, sometimes you will be given Authority to Leave (ATL) a delivery.

ATL means that you can leave the delivery at the drop-off address if the recipient isn’t present.

If you are given ATL, then you must get a picture for Proof of Delivery (POD). As you’re not getting the signature of the Recipient, Go People and the Sender needs a photo for POD to know for sure that you’ve made the delivery successfully.

For more information see our article about Taking a Photo For Proof of Delivery.

Nick Hartman is the Marketing and Communications Manager for Go People. The prospect of seamless, same day deliveries excites him and he hopes Go People will one day achieve that. Outside of making the delivery world a better place, you can often see him down at the SCG taking high class photos for his Instagram page.
