    That looks like an Express label though. But, I have to blame partly the shipper. It is amazing how some of the crap shippers pack into a slim, flimsy cardboard box could make it down the street without falling apart. Let alone across the country. 150lb package in a box designed for 10lbs

    OMFG...that is one messed-up package. But remember, like bbsam always says, Ground is just as good as Express.

    What makes you think it's Ground?

    maybe Express is as bad as Ground.

    It is an Express label and there is no way in the world any courier would deliver something like that.

    There is no way I would ever let a package like that end up on my truck. Several people missed the boat on that one, unloader in the semi, how many loaders/handlers saw it go by without re-routing it to be checked out, the loader who put it on the truck for delivery and worst of all the driver who actually lugged it up to the door and left it. And it's an express label. Who knew, both operations have people who screw up.

    Here's the rub on that one, we have to take it out and let the customer refuse it. That is unless it's a DG package that's leaking, then it stays behind in a plastic bag.

    so a courier would leave that? That's not really giving the customer much of a chance to refuse it, is it?

    There is no way I show that to a customer.

    At my station, managers would make sure that package would go on road, and they would also try to send the damaged DG in a plastic bag on road, too!

    I looked at all 3 Huff Post pictures. I don't see anything that confirms it's an Express package. If it is, it wouldn't surprise me, but it says "Ground" all over it. All that is missing is the driver's cigarette butt laying on top of it.
