Opimization of parcel shipping and refunds from poor OTD

VeriShip is an interesting company focusing on parcel logistics optimization, reporting and analysis. The business of the company is to audit FedEx and UPS shipments and recover refunds on behalf of the customer. According to their sales brochure the probability of parcel shipment to arrive late is 5 %. "And because of those odds, up to $5 billion in shipping refunds go unclaimed each year." Poor on-time-delivery of couriers is behind this company's business. The company website has also some interesting links on magazine articles related to the topic:
