  • If they lose 1/100th of a percent, then their reliabiliity rate is 4 sigma: .9999, which is pretty damn good.

    If the did manage to improve tenfold and reach 5 sigma, or one lost package per hundred thousand packages, that would be truly amazing. It's hard to imagine UPS doing much better than that.

    But they'd still lose or misplace 130 packages a day, one of which could be yours, which still wouldn't make you feel any better.

    For example, at Pearson Int'l Airport in Toronto, they lose, misplace or delay

    • For example, at Pearson Int'l Airport in Toronto, they lose, misplace or delay about 300% of the luggage that moves through the airport.
      I presume that's hyperbole, because to actually accomplish that, they'd need to lose the luggage of two other nearby airports as well. Entirely.

      Hard to imagine that.
