    think about it, in every truck there is 2 or 3 new sheets of paper each day. every single log has 2-3 sheets of paper each day. each center probably posts at least 20 sheets of paper each day showing hours worked, telematics reports, safety things and so on and so forth. the building i work in probably runs 250 routes a day minimum, thats about 500 sheets just going into each truck showing the route number and how many pieces are loaded onto each shelf

    cosmo1 Just another internet hooligan.

    Really? 500 sheets of paper for each truck?

    I don't think so.

    I think our center is entirely responsible for the deforestation of the Amazon.

    In the op's defense, he did say they run 250 routes a day at 2-3 sheets per truck.

    you all miss my point. im not talking about wasting paper, im wandering how much money ups spends on supplying all the paper that is almost useless. tons of paper is printed every day and it is probably looked at once or twice total. its nuts. im not talking about saving the rain forest

    i meant 500 sheets just for the trucks themselves. like the sheets saying the number of pieces in your truck and what not. not 500 per bad

    There are probably 500 pages of reports on every driver every day but most of it is just stored on computers and not printed out.

    Perhaps you should start a recycling program at your center.

    There's so much paper scattered around when the trucks leave. It's like a ticker tape parade. Somebody does a great job cleaning up.

    Are you serious? What the hell could they be collecting on us to take up so much reporting?
