    Dec. 22. Heaviest day of the year...

    Tomarrow is the heaviest day of the year for UPS this year. This isnt for every building, but for UPS as a whole. I'd like to say thank you all for your service, time spent and memories made. Safe travel and love of money everyone has made. That all make it home safe and happy to family and friends.

    Merry Chrismas to all and all shut the h*** up! :teethy:

    Hmm, they're starting the workday at 5pm for twilight shift on the 22nd at my hub. We've had plenty of 11am start times, so I'm surprised thurs will be busiest if we are starting at 5

    They are referring to delivery of packages which means that the heaviest pickup days (which drives Twilight sort volume) would be the previous 3 days.

    My son works inside the hub has had a 2 pm start time the last 3 days and gotten done after 11 pm college semester is over so it has not been a problem especially with ot over 5

    Our peak day was on Monday, we started at 12:30am and it was pretty insane. We've been starting at 1:40am after that.
     
  7. Oh god here we go, as a driver helper my knee is about to fall off, I have band-aids for the blisters on my feet and my breathing is not looking good either. Put a doctor behind the bulkhead door because I had some rough days this week. I will be having some energy drinks for the first time for lunch and other things. Any suggestions in this thread would also be useful.

    I think our heaviest day this peak was supposedly on... Tuesday, or maybe it was Monday. We got like 70,000 pieces or something?

    i thought it was today?

    that being said, i'm still uber impressed with all the drivers attitudes this year. maybe it's the warm weather contributing to a smooth day, but i had to shuttle about 15 pieces to 8 drivers today and they were all right on schedule, made all the meets at the exact time they said they would, and were generally happy to see me "doing real work." :)

    I picked up over 400 NDA pkgs today, took me 20 min to unload at the air dock tonite. Don't think it's over yet ladies and gents, but there's a light at the end of the tunnel.
