The shipment has been dispatched to a UPS service provider for delivery today. Other than time-definite air deliveries, shipments are generally delivered anytime between the hours of 9:00 am and 7:00 pm (and sometimes later) to residences, and by close of business for commercial addresses. UPS cannot schedule a specific delivery time within that window. If you miss your delivery, your service provider may make a second attempt on the next business day, and a third attempt on the following business day, if necessary or your shipment may be taken to a UPS Access Point™ for pickup. Refer to the information on the UPS InfoNotice left by your service provider.
In the U.S. and Canada, shipments that don't require a signature can be left in a safe place at the service provider's discretion.

For residential deliveries that require a signature, you can leave instructions for the service provider if no one will be home. For example, you can ask that the shipment be delivered to a neighbour who will be home. If an adult signature is required, and the sender has instructed us not to leave the shipment with a neighbour, we will make another delivery attempt on the next business day.

Your package is still within the UPS network and, unless otherwise noted, should be delivered on the scheduled delivery date. Shipment movement information is captured each time a tracking label is scanned in the UPS delivery system. There may be several days between scans if the shipment is going cross-country or moving between countries.
If your shipment is expected to be in transit for more than a day between tracking scans, we will display the day and date of the Next Expected Tracking Event in the Shipment Progress area. This message does not mean that your shipment is behind schedule or stopped moving; it simply means that the tracking label might not be scanned for a while. We display the Next Expected Tracking Event so you can rest assured that your shipment is still moving even though no new tracking scans may appear for a while.
