The Big Brown Machine

Yesterday, I shipped a package by UPS from Woodinville, WA to Huntington Beach, CA by Next Day Air. If the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, then WTF is UPS doing?

It flew to Portland, OR, then to Des Moines IA, swinging by Louisville, KY and finally now going in the right direction back to SoCal.

I assume that it needs to travel to their nearest major hub, but it does concern me that it may get lost with all the excess checking in and out of their facilities. Maybe someone with insider knowledge can explain as I have seen it happen before.

Just so long as it makes it to the final destination, then everything is A-OK!
