If we have a choice we dont even select UPS anymore....

sorry just thought I would add in
We have noticed the same thing. Unusual delays, lost packages and extreme damage to packages. We had more issues with UPS this January than in all of 2005.

Not to alert anyone but last nite a UPS jet caught fire upon landing in Philly. No one was hurt but over 60,000lbs of packages were lost. It came out of Atlanta but from what I am told that is a Hub for UPS so the stuff could have originated from anywhere and could have been destined for anywhere in the North East. Hope this doesn't affect anyone

UPS always works great from SMC to us. We always got the package from SMC in maximum 3 days. From door to door.
