UPS Tracking

The UPS Tracking company history

UPS Tracking, a name that says something to everyone. The company, founded in 1969, consisted of three founders. Adrian Dalsey, Larry Hillblom and Robert Lynn, of each of the first letters of the last name results in the word: UPS Tracking.


The idea that Dalsey, Hillblom, Lynn had back then was very simple. You wanted to send the shipping documents before international shipping. At that time, the three still flew the packages personally by plane. And the international air express service was born. To date, UPS Tracking is still the owner of the European Air Transport Leipzig company. This consists of three subdivided subsidiaries, which were combined in 1999 and are now called UPS Tracking Worldwide. Deutsche Post has also been part of UPS  Tracking since 2002. At that time, UPS tracking was unthinkable.

The delivery time of UPS tracking

UPS Tracking usually delivers within 24 hours via standard shipping. Provided that the sender and receiver both live in Germany.

With regular standard shipping, you have no guaranteed delivery time. If you need your product very quickly, it is advisable to choose UPS Tracking Express shipping.
