A new study by researchers at the University of Washington has found that urban areas in the United States and Canada deliver the fastest and most reliable delivery, but those in rural areas often lag behind.
In a new report, the UW researchers compared delivery data from nearly 30,000 urban and rural cities in the U.S. and Canada and found that the results vary widely by region and geography.
In some cities, such as New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, the delivery rate for the highest-quality delivery is twice as high as the average nationwide.
However, the results are not statistically significant, and there are several reasons for this.
Rural delivery has long been considered a weakness of the U to the urban one.
The UW study found that about 50 percent of delivery in rural U.K. areas was either slow or unreliable, while the city of New York had a delivery rate nearly three times that of the average U.U. The researchers say that urban and suburban delivery is more stable in the long run.
Rural cities may be more efficient because they rely on drivers and are able to offer a more flexible schedule.
The authors suggest that in the future, urban areas should work to improve their delivery systems and find better ways to integrate them with public transportation.
However the researchers also note that the data from rural cities could be biased because they are generally older, more populated, and more expensive to transport.
