How long does it usually take to deliver the UPS?
UPS usually delivers every day at 8pm. However, during the holiday season, UPS carriers are available until late at night and can deliver your package later in the night, after 8pm.
If your package has traveled and you do not receive it the same day, UPS will try to redeliver it the next business day.

These are two UPS contract services, where UPS delivers a parcel to its destination and then hands it over to the USPS (US Postal Service), which delivers it to its final destination.
What happens if the tracker does not provide information or provides an invalid number?
If you do not see any information or an invalid number when you enter the tracking number, the shipper has not yet sent your information to UPS or the package has not yet been delivered to UPS. The third scenario could be that your sender gave you the wrong tracking number.
In this case, only the sender can help you find the location of the parcel or forward the shipment.
In general, once the shipper has created a label for your order, UPS will provide a tracking number that you will receive from the shipper before sending your information to UPS. Once the shipper has delivered the UPS package, you will see the message Ship ready for UPS pick-up when you try to track the package. Upon receipt, UPS updates the status in Pickup Scan or Origin Scan, which are used to calculate delivery dates.
You did not receive the package? That’s all you need to apply.
If you have not received the package, you or the sender can request it here. You can learn how to prepare a claim or watch this video.
Please note that if shippers are able to make claims, UPS recommends they do so because they have a copy of the invoice, receipts, product description, and tracking numbers to help them locate the package more quickly.
