Obviously, the faster shipping times will be more expensive, but even beyond speed, UPS shipping rates are dependent upon multiple factors. For instance:ups-logo

How is your shipment packaged… box or envelope?
How much does it weight?
How much is it worth?
Where is it going?
Is it going to a business or a residence?
And the list goes on.

UPS offers other “add-on” services, among them email notifications, declared value (or insurance) and Saturday delivery for an additional fee. To learn more about the services UPS offers, contact Mail Services at or 503.838.8383.
