    Ordered some things yesterday and the website says it is to be delivered by ups mail innovations. Is this another name for surepost

    Similar to Surepost, except shipper puts package in a large yellow bag, somebody picks them up(at the hub) and delivers to PO, and then they finish the delivery. They may not even ship bag until it is full.

    sailfish Having way too much fun.

    It's pretty pointlessly dumb if you ask me. It's also the only time I won't consider people total idiots for putting their mail in a dropbox since the label actually does have "UPS" on it despite being a USPS package.

    It is. Basically, nobody cares if that package gets delivered anytime soon.

    MI is the service you're horrified to see pop up in tracking. It's coupled with instant regret over having only saved $3-5 over the next rung up in the budget shipping options. Endless sitting and transfers between couriers and shady locations.

    The customer may not have the option to choose. It was the shippers doing!

    We don't get tracers for MI packages. No insurance, no guarantee.

    We have a tug load full for them to pick a couple times a week. Don't think they pick up every day.
