UPS offers many different shipping options for the convenience of the customer around the world. Some shipping companies offer their delivery services only Monday through Friday, but UPS has a Saturday delivery service, with which you can drop off your item on Friday and have it shipped overnight. When someone needs a package delivered the next day, UPS has overnight shipping options for delivery of the package on time at its destination.
Next Day, Air Early A.M.
UPS offers next-day, air-early a.m. shipping services that will make sure your package gets delivered at its destination by 8 a.m. the next morning. This service is limited to major cities within the contiguous 48 states. Delivery to most other U.S. cities, like Anchorage or Oahu, is by 8:30 a.m. or 9:00 a.m. Deliveries to additional locations will be made by 10:00 a.m. To find the precise delivery time for your area, you can download exact delivery times by destination zip code on the UPS website. This service offers free UPS packaging for the customer's convenience.
Next Day Air
UPS offers Next Day Air for the customer who needs his package delivered quickly, overnight. The next day air service is similar to the next day air early a.m., except that the package will be delivered by 10:30 a.m., 12:00 p.m. or by the end of the day, depending on where the package's destination may be. The service area for next day air is in all 50 states with some limitations in Alaska and Hawaii, due to accessibility and logistics.
Next Day Air Saver
UPS next day air saver service can benefit a customer looking for the most affordable option of the overnight shipping services. Next day air saver is guaranteed for next-day delivery and comes with free UPS packaging. This overnight shipping option will have the package to its destination by 3:00 p.m. or 4:30 p.m. to commercial locations and by the end of the day to residential destinations.
Saturday delivery is offered to UPS for customers who have time-critical shipments that need to be shipping on Friday and delivered on Saturday. Saturday delivery is available with all of the UPS overnight shipping options. You can choose the option that best fits your budget and the time range of delivery. You must make sure that any shipment destined for a Saturday delivery has a Saturday delivery sticker on each envelope or package. If the packages do not have this sticker, they could arrive on Monday.
