Subject to the Tariff/Terms and Conditions of Service, UPS guarantees on-schedule delivery of packages, shipped via UPS's services, that are listed as guaranteed, or will refund your transportation charges. Guaranteed Service is not available in all areas and does not apply to shipments containing a package with an Additional Handling or Large Package surcharge. Scheduled business days and delivery schedules are revised occasionally due to changes in distribution and volume, especially during holiday periods. Service to some remote areas also may require additional delivery days.

For current delivery schedules, service availability and information, and a description of the UPS service Guarantee, see the UPS Rate and Service Guide.US Time in Transit Map

The most up-to-date transit time details will be available at ups.com/ctc at the time of shipping. Certain commodities and high value shipments may require additional transit time for customs clearance.

DRY ICE FACTS

Dry Ice temperature is extremely cold at -109.3°F or -78.5°C.

Always handle Dry Ice with care and wear protective cloth or leather gloves whenever touching it.

An oven mitt or towel will work.

If touched briefly it is harmless, but prolonged contact with the skin will freeze cells and cause injury similar to a burn.

 

WARNING:

If dry ice is stored in an area without proper ventilation, it may cause people to inhale large amounts of the gas CO2, which displaces oxygen in the body, the CDC says.

This, in turn, can lead to harmful effects, including headache, confusion, disorientation and death

Disposing Dry Ice

To dispose of dry ice, place it in a well-ventilated area at room temperature; the remainder of the ice will sublimate away. Never dispose of dry ice in a trash can, chemical waste container or other garbage/waste can.

Dry ice is solidified carbon dioxide. ... So if you receive dry ice in any packages this season, please don't leave it in your home to evaporate. The best thing to do is leave it outside, in a place that is out of the reach of children, pets, and the general public.
