Pros: Provides detailed tracking information as the package moves from one city to another.
Cons: Very slow and expensive compared to USPS priority mail.
UPS ground shipping is very slow. Even though it could
go faster, UPS seems to delay the shipment on purpose so that
it reaches the receiver only after 5 business days. I've
followed the shipment on several occasions using UPS tracking
- on several days, the package just sits at one spot without
In contrast USPS priority mail is both cheap as well as
extremely fast (takes 2 days). On every occasion, I've
found the same shipment to be about 40% cheaper to send
using USPS priority mail. On top of that, it reaches the
destination much sooner.
