    Staples drivers have been told that their last day of employment is around September 7th and that all their volume is going to carriers like ups. More cases of paper coming our way.

    We've seen a reduction in the paper cases from both Staples and Office Depot, more work but more profit. That should make the ride a little smoother on the rougher roads.

    Well that should be fun. There's a distribution center in Chambersburg I believe, and we get a ton of Staples volume through NewPA. I'd imagine HarPA gets a crap ton of the east coast stuff as well. We had a 500+ piece straight shot of paper going our Washington, PA center once. The receiver refused the shipment because it wasn't palletized..

    Boy would I hate to be the driver who made the attempt and the clerk who had to process it all.
    Now that you mention it, I can't remember the last time I saw cases of paper coming through. Or even had to do a damage on one. We're not big, so we don't do a lot of damages. But normally we were doing at least one damage a week on cases of paper.

    We should work out a deal with Staples where we get to keep all the damaged paper instead of sending it back to them. Think of the money we could save. All that paper could just get fed right into our printers and used to print out even more reports that no one cares about.

    I'm envisioning preloaders telling their drivers and management that the RDR/RDL sections will forever forth be reserved for the Staples paper cases that'll hit the belt all at once every day.

    Unless belt stops become a normal thing. Which, as we all know, would be unlikely.

    That kind of forward thinking is not appreciated here at UPS.

    Or stacked out under the belt until drivers arrive and help me load it all.

    Great "who stopped the belt" picture!

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    We had a rural route driver get 80 cases of paper for a school. They couldn't believe it. Said it always came on pallets before. He wheeled it all the way through the school to some back room for them. Said he wAs there 2 hours.


    I would of said tough :censored2: I'll leave it outside the office. You deal with it from there.

    I'm surprised they could get it all on the package car

    I believe it. We probably would have just had an air drive shuttle it out in a car rather than mess with that crap. Waste of time.

    I like when my loader puts them on the top shelf. The amount of effort makes me smile :)

    I love when they fall and I just Missed/Dmg so we both deal with it again...

    In fairness, it's not a true package party without a heavyweight or two on a top shelf.

    Because the mechanic stopped it when nobody responded to the jam he was yelling about for the last 3 minutes.
