Calculate Time and Cost helps you compare delivery times and published rates for sending UPS shipments.
Go to the Calculate Time and Cost Tool To calculate the delivery time, go to the Calculate Time and Cost tool, located on the main Shipping menu.
Once you’ve submitted the order, you can add items to a Quick List of frequently used supplies for easy reordering. Please note that Express packaging is only available for air and international shipments.
Other supplies such as ground boxes can be purchased at The UPS Store When a sender creates a label for an order, we provide a tracking number the sender may share with the customer before uploading the information to UPS.
Once the sender transmits the shipment information to UPS, you'll be able to track your package and see the status, "Order Processed: Ready for UPS." Once UPS has possession of the package, you'll see updates such as "Origin Scan" or "Pickup Scan" to indicate we have the package.
With these scans, we'll calculate and display a scheduled delivery date.
We display the Next Expected Tracking Event to show your shipment is moving even though no new tracking scans may appear for a while.
