Since 2005, its operations include logistics and other transportation-related areas like UPS Supply Chain Solutions, UPS Logistics, UPS Mail Innovations, and UPS Professional Solutions. (Press Releases) Delivery Rate and Transit Times UPS offers various delivery rates and times based on the size package you are trying to send and its weight. Also, it varies on the priority that you place on the package. Say we are based in Brockport and want to send a letter to Brussels, Belgium it would cost us between $86.50 and $41.87. These rates seem to be quite reasonable if you plan to send overseas and you don’t have a maximum priority on the package that you are sending. UPS Fleet UPS moves over 15 million packages around the world each day, which requires operating a large ground and air fleet. Reducing fuel consumption and emissions is a constant priority and challenge for UPS. The company's emissions reduction strategy includes using technology to reduce fuel consumption and deploy alternative fuel and low emissions vehicles. (Press Releases)
