Due to the unprecedented volume of packages in the small parcel systems across the United States, We have been informed of the following delivery commitments for packages shipped via AIR services during the week of December 18th.   We have experienced added transit times in ground shipments already in some areas.

Please carefully review the information below.  Be sure when you are speaking with your customers that they are aware of this information. We want our customer’s expectations set to ensure their orders are delivered by the need by date.  Please keep in mind UPS will not provide credit for expedited packages that are delayed due to inclement weather.  

Ground Service standards are of course impacted as well. Customers should be aware ground service will have a minimum of 1-2 days added to the standard transit times. I would not be surprised to see standard ground transit times extended beyond that as we get closer to the holiday.
