“who is legally liable for stolen packages?”

“Dear PoPville,

As we approach prime package theft season, I was hoping someone could provide me information on who is legally liable for stolen packages? I’m assuming most packages are the responsibility of the shipper / shipping company for most of the shipping process, but at what point does the liability fall to the ultimate recipient of the package? Often UPS/USPS/FedEx leaves packages either outside of my building or in our easily accessible lobby, even though we’ve asked them to please deliver to unit doors or to use special package boxes to minimize theft. Any info would be appreciated!”
