    noticed under Shipped By it says Worldwide shipping. When you click on that it has some text that says this:

    Import:

    * Delivery by 10:30 a.m. or 12:00 noon

    My normal UPS truck comes between 2 and 3 so Im guessing there are different trucks for world and domestic? This works great for me because I leave for work at 3 Friday.

    There's only 1 UPS truck. But depending on the times that certain packages have to be delivered by, the route may vary. This is in contrast to FedEx, which uses Express and Ground trucks, which are actually two completely separate entities.

    There is only one and that delivery time is an estimate.

    No they GUARANTEE the delivery BY that time. Otherwise UPS owes the original shopper compensation of some of their original fare rate back. Depending on their delivery area, they will deliver it by one or the other. UPS and fedex both choose "delivery codes" for certain areas that determine what times they will guarantee by. You can look it up on their website.

    PS there can sometimes be two trucks for certain delivery times. Often one "early" truck will do tome definite deliveries (international and domestic 2day and overnight) and others will do ground and other deliveries. However they sometimes will have one truck in one area doing the time deck urea first then the others after. It depends on area size and package volume for the day.

    So that is when you are going to get it between 2 and 3 or even later. I used to receive packages at that time frame but got moved to 5 and 6.
