I have always lived in apartments. For the past while, that meant highrises. And I'm away all day at work. So I prefer not to have a package delivered at home by Fedex because I know I will have to bus it out to their warehouse in a dark industrial area (I've actually done this). When I Iived in my previous address, a high rise mostly occupied by students, most of them foreign, the entry door post used to be lined with pleading notes to the Fedex delivery guy about how to really get the package to them via cell phone numbers (our door bells were not keyed to the apartment numbers).
UPS, on the other hand, when they encounter no answer, will put a sticky note on the front door which I can take with my ID to a relatively local UPS Store for pickup.
USPS (or Canada Post) is even better because then the mail person puts the notice right in my mailbox and I can take it to the local post office (usually also really close). Also if the package is small, I can pick it up via the parcel box in my apartment building.
I rarely order things for which I am in a crashing hurry so the order of preference if I'm allowed one is post office, UPS, Fedex, and then the other ones. If necessary and I know who the carrier is, I reroute it to my workplace. I can't reroute the Soylent, however, because I work with a bunch of medical types in a non-profit along with a bunch of foodies. That kind of aggravation I don't need.
