UPS Refunds & Claims
Are you claiming your UPS refunds?
All the packages that you ship using UPS are guaranteed to arrive on time. If your package is delivered late even by a minute, according to the UPS money back guarantee, you are entitled to a UPS refund. UPS does not automatically refund shipping charges for late packages. The shipper or the business owner has to track every shipment, identify late deliveries and then submit UPS claims for refunds.
As a business owner, how much time can you devote to monitor all the shipments, detect the ones that were delayed and submit claims for UPS refunds? Instead, simply sign up with LateShipment.com and start reaping your UPS refunds. LateShipment offers a unique service to secure your UPS refunds by automatically tracking all your shipments and submitting UPS claims on your behalf.
Try LateShipment.com, an automated tracking system that continuously monitors your shipments for late deliveries and submits eligible claims to UPS on your behalf. Recovered UPS refunds are directly credited to your UPS account.
