Days in Transit

Your UPS shipping method will determine the number of days your package is in transit. If you are shipping UPS Ground, please see the map below to determine the number of days in transit. If you are shipping UPS 3-Day Select, your package is in transit for 3 days. If you are shipping UPS 2nd Day Air, your package is in transit for 2 days. If you are shipping UPS Next Day Air or UPS Next Day Air Saver, your package is in transit for 1 day.

It is important to remember that days in transit start counting the day after the package is picked up by UPS. So if your package is picked up by UPS on Monday, the first day in transit is Tuesday, the second day in transit is Wednesday, etc. Also please keep in mind that it takes time to process and fulfill every order. See the " Processing &Fulfillment" page for more information.
