    My first would be a ramp at the back of the Package Car like they have on those Uhaul trucks. With the size and weight of the package getting bigger we need a little help here.

    BTW, spare us all the sarcasm. We all know UPS isn't going to be everything to everyone all the time.

    Dead serious. What wrong with ramp? Have you seen the A/C units or Generators that come through the system. Heck sometime the freights is on its own pallet.

    It would waste more time than it would save.

    Have you ever delivered any packages? So many things wrong with that idea.

  7. How about just cutting out one of the shelves? That way we would have some place to load irregulars.

    Sound good by irregulars come in so many shapes. Tires, mufflers, rebar, pipe fittings etc.

    For one that truck in your picture made an unnecessary back - onto the customers grass to begin with. Also package cars are lower to the ground than that eliminating the need for the ramp.
     
  11. Cut off a piece of the 5000 and 6000 shelf. And you could stack them several different ways. Besides down the middle of the truck. UPS needs to keep up with the times. That spend all of this money on technology but not on infrastructure.

    You probably never saw it but when UPS increased the weight limit to 150 pounds they were supposed to provide collapsible rollers that could be stored against the shelf and used to unload heavy packages. There were only a couple floating around and just for show because they quietly disappeared.
     
  13. You are lucky to have a good dolly.

    I am all for working smarter, not harder. The idea of a ramp may sound good but it would be a huge waste of time.

    We were allowed to chain and padlock out hand carts so they wouldn't wander off but that changed to us not being allowed to do so. Always a couple of carts short of what the center needed so it was steal from a car in the shop or parked outside.
