    Googling leads me to believe that UPS services might also be color coded? Perhaps by service importance?

    Wouldn't surprise me. I sent a package off by UPS Next Day Air using PayPal shipping yesterday (after DHL lost the original shipment going to someone expecting to have a printer in time for Christmas for his daughter) and it should have been delivered today. Didn't happen. UPS said that the package "missed the truck."

    At least I get my $29 refunded back to me.

    Red=Next Day
    Blue=2 Day Air
    Orange=3 Day Select

    That's all

    There are two Next Day air services, an AM that is guaranteed by a certain time in the morning, and a saver that gets delivered whenever UPS normally gets out to your place.

    Red means it gets special attention while they are kicking it around the warehouse :p
