from the UPS site...

What events are recorded about shipments?

Shipment movement information is captured each time a tracking label is scanned in the UPS delivery system. Common scans include the following:
  • Billing Information Received: UPS has received the electronic transmission of shipment details from the shipper. This does not necessarily mean that UPS has taken possession of the shipment
  • Origin: the shipment has been scanned at the origin UPS location
  • Departure: the shipment has left its last recorded location and is on its way to the next UPS facility
  • Arrival: the shipment has arrived at an intermediate sort facility or the destination facility
  • Out for Delivery: the shipment has reached the facility that is responsible for the delivery of the shipment; this is a shipment's last stop before delivery.
  • Delivery: the shipment has been delivered; the date and time of delivery is recorded
  • Exception: any unplanned event that may occur in the shipment delivery lifecycle will be noted and explained
