Default When Did UPS Stop Using Trucks

When did UPS stop using trucks and went back to horse and buggy. I've waiting for a package to arrive from the Great State of Kentucky for a week since UPS took possession and started to ship it.

Screen-shot the tracking information, do they actually have it, has it started to move?

Government might be using tax payer money to pay drivers more to stay at home.

I had a UPS package stop moving just over a week ago. Going through a UPS claim, and a refund request from the seller right now. A first for me.
Also, I had a package delivered on SUNDAY by an Amazon owned truck. I live in the sticks. That was a double first.
Is something a miss in the shipping world?

They all have problems from time to time. I had a Fedex package shipping from Thief River Falls MN to central WI. It went to Minneapolis MN then to Eau Claire WI then back to Minneapolis then to Kansas City then to Rolla MO then back to Kansas City then to Madison WI were it sat for week and a couple times it would be on a truck for delivery but would return back to Madison. Finally got it after 2 weeks and the address was correct and they delivery to my business a couple times a week.

Pretty sure a lot of this has to do with the "c" word. Since the virus started, much more commerce is done remotely, and all the shipping companies (even Amazon at times) have a huge increase is use, and haven't been able to keep up with demand.

Also allot more company’s are sending out your package has been shipped emails. Where in realty they just printed out a shipping label. The package might not have left the business for a few days after the label was printed. Making it seem like the company has super fast shipping. Blaming the shipping company for the longer days till you receive.
