The Annual Shipping Company Debate
Personally I use USPS. At the very least I live in a region (02903) where they actually seem to have their act together. Having participated in mail and package delivery studies with Price Waterhouse for several years I used to get reports on delivery accuracy, timeliness, etc. USPS always came out in the 94-96% range for each. Not too bad.
I’ve hated UPS for some time since they love to do tag and run with residential delivery. Matter of fact I’ve busted them quite a few times when they did this and made a stink about it. Needless to say my packages got delivered wherever I said they should be after that.
But someone on another blog posted a wonderful name for UPS: “UPS is absolute shit-wrapped-in-chiffon, though.”
I guess UPS invites this – they do keep calling themselves Brown. Whenever I hear “What can Brown do for you?” some very evil thoughts cross my mind.
