What Is Overnight Air?
UPS guarantees that with Next Day Air normal, you can send a package the day before (within certain time limits) and it will reach in any contiguous U.S. state between 10:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. the next day. In some instances, parcels may even be delivered before 10 a.m., although the guarantee stipulates that they will arrive no later than noon. UPS furnishes packing for Next Day Air deliveries (with a conspicuous red label) and offers a money-back guarantee if the package is not delivered on time.

What are UPS’s other shipping services?
UPS offers a variety of delivery alternatives, particularly if you are a commercial customer or delivering internationally. UPS Ground is the most popular type of UPS shipment. Frequently, if the destination is nearby, the package can be delivered before the end of the following day. If you are sending to a place that is only a few states away, UPS estimates that the package will reach in two days. If you are sending across neighbouring states, UPS Ground will take at least three days. It is the most affordable choice for non-business consumers with non-urgent packages.
In addition to UPS Next Day Air, other domestic alternatives include UPS 3-Day Select, which guarantees delivery within a three-day window within the contiguous United States. While the majority of UPS Ground deliveries arrive in three days or fewer, certain items with remote destinations may take up to a week to arrive. UPS 3-Day Select assures the three-day delivery window and provides a money-back guarantee if the shipment does not arrive on time.
