    Although I don't want anyone risking their lives to transport wax for gods sake, has anyone noticed UPS / FEDEX /USPS to be more "efficient" when shipping packages in inclement weather?

    I've shipped most stuff through USPS unless it's gallons of product. They stay pretty steady at 2-3 days via flat rate priority. Though I don't remember if I've actually shipped anything during terrible storms.

    i think Fedex trucks must have dedicated snow tires (or snowmobiles). UPS may have summer performance tires. :whistle:

    weather has ALOT to do with how these companies operate, but they are fairly efficeient. USPS does exceptions as well, but you dont generally not them becuase you dont always get realtime tracking from USPS. its annoying I know. LOL.

    Sometimes, delivery confirmation tracking with USPS is a waste of money. I usually always ship USPS priority. For the price, its hard to beat. Usually dont have any problems with them. I have had one experience with a package I sent to a member recently. But it showed up about 2 days late.

    Yeah, the tracking updates suck. Most cases, the package arrives before they update the system.
