How many items per 1000 shipped does UPS lose outright, and how many items per 1000 shipped does UPS ship late?  I would like the figures for shipments within the continental United States and for both air and ground service separately and combined.

Hello again Slingshot,

I was not able to locate the precise statistics you asked for, however I did find other figures that might interest you.

A  U.S. Domestic 10:30 am Delivery Performance Study carried out by PA Consulting Group in September 2006 shows that UPS has a 91% on-time delivery for domestic next-day 10:30 am service in the results for National performance.

"UPS and DHL were more likely than FedEx to meet their promise to the customer to deliver before 10:30 am. Both UPS and DHL delivered almost 91% of packages on time
(the difference is not statistically significant)."

Download the complete report here.

"Services aside from next-day do generally have a higher on-time delivery percentage."

UPS Freight on-time delivery for STERIS Corporation is 98.5 percent.

"UPS has an on-time delivery rate that's better than 99% for Royal Canin's upscale pet food."

Omaha Steaks uses UPS online tools to trace and track orders.
"Omaha Steaks submitted 25,000 claims for lost or spoiled packages in 2005."
UPA Pressroom

2006 Delivery Volume 3.9 billion packages and documents 
Daily Delivery Volume 15.6 million packages and documents 
Daily U.S. Air Volume 2.3 million packages and documents 
Daily International Volume 1.8 million packages and documents,2305,866,00.html?mkname=companyinfo

Would any of the above statistics work for you?

Here is a mathematical formula to calculate the percentage of lost packages of a company by using their insurance costs:
