How UPS Cargo Containers Work

No matter how far you are from your nearest neighbor, if you live in the United States or Europe, UPS can deliver to your address. UPS can deliver to 80 percent of the planet within 48 hours, so if you live somewhere else, it’s still pretty likely that UPS can find you to drop off or pick up packages.
