Made it on time. Just a really strange and illogical path.

Wow, a 40 post thread about how much they suck and it made it on time. That's funny.

Not that I'm standing up for UPS. I actually lost a good customer not too long ago because of this same scenario, only his package didn't make it on time. Not that it was any fault of mine, nor was there anything I could do to fix their mistake, but the customer hasn't come back since. I even told him I would make arrangements to use FedEx specifically for his future orders and at his request, but never heard from him again. So is life I suppose.

Its not that they suck, the knew and were right as to when it would get there. but the logic of sending in a 9hr loop doesn't make any sense.

Its all about efficiency AND meeting commitments - they didn't have enough stuff going to Augusta to justify a truck. They had enough stuff going other places. The computers they use figured the routes to assure the package would arrive on time - computer logic, not human logic.

glad you got your stuff. My experience with UPS is pretty good overall.
