It's called an address label, they go on the boxes.
The boxes going international go through customs on site at the UPS hubs.

The NSA could achieve this by accessing the packages at customs without alerting UPS directly.
The would only have to break out an NSL because we can. to make it less of a hassle, or just to flex muscle.
Really an NSL would be detrimental to secrecy, the NSA is clearly aware that secrets keep better when you
*don't tell anyone*
Rather than when you ask them to keep it on the down low.

I for one hope it's open source....

I am sorry you entirely missed my point AC.

I responded specifically and directly to the only point raised about which I cared; the one I quoted.
You reply with more political nonsense.
Congratulations, you broke the rust of the old cogitator and fired it up to let 'logic' happen with regards to one very tiny piece of your life and then you rushed to shut it off again just as fast as you could... Congratulations again! Seriously you are now more rational then the majority of people on the planet.

You still look ridiculous when you deride others for being 1% more irrational than you.
