Best for ground deliveries
With nearly 63,000 shipping locations (compared to 51,000 for FedEx) it's not hard to find a UPS branch in your area. Services provided at these locations are very similar to those offered at FedEx, but the company is best known for its ground-delivery service, which can sometimes be more affordable than that of the USPS and slightly faster, too. All shipments through UPS have guaranteed on-time delivery, with the exception of ground shipments mailed during the holiday season. Tracking is far better than the service offered by the Postal Service -- every time your package is scanned its location and delivery date is updated online.
