  • If the statistic is accurate, it will almost never be your package that is lost.

    Tolerance of some problems in complicated systems is only reasonable. These are humans and there is a cost to perfection. Would you rather pay ten times as much and for them to lose only 1 package in 100,000? Would you perhaps prefer to pay 100 times as much and them to lose 1 package in a 1,000,000?

    The actual cost and tolerance for error is determined in the market. People will pay for the service level they can tolerate.
