How UPS Deliveries Actually Work

The stories are often the same — you spend some time saving up money for the perfect piece of gear that you’ve spent hours reading reviews about and comparing. You finally order it, and spend some days checking the tracking information every few minutes to see if your package is still traveling according to schedule. Finally, the big day arrives, and you eagerly stay fixed at home, unwilling to step out for a minute or take a shower lest the UPS delivery person arrives. After something forces you to step out of the house briefly, you arrive home and are crushed to discover a “failed delivery” slip affixed to your door.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look into why this always seems to happen.

    Here in Canuckistan, if it has to cross the border with UPS I don’t need it, with the one exception of full overnight service, in which UPS takes care of everything in return for a toe from your firstborn child.
