    UPS exception for deliveries. SECTION 48.2

    All you hear is "you guys promised and didn't deliver." Well, I can't imagine the mental breakdowns these same people have when they see there ice cream start to melt seconds after its mounted onto a cone.

    After working 60 hours a week delivering hundreds of million of packages in freezing rain, snow storms, unplowed driveways/walkways, these people carp and whine because there collective procrastination slammed the systems? We value all our customers but this isn't fantasy island. Many of the delays came from UPS shippers who where also overwhelmed by the traffic saying things where in stock but where not and uploading shipments into UPS computer system with no actual package or slammed UPS a week to days before Christmas. Nobody want to hold the hot potato and they threw it into UPS hands IMHO.

    I hope UPS and the public have learn a lesson from this event. Ship earlier and for UPS its better to be overweight workers and vehicles than to run its typical just enough to get by planning.

    Exactly. I saw a guy on tv this morning, saying he ordered something December 1. Ok, you ever think that maybe it's on back order???
    How about all the loads these shippers held hours past their pull time on the 23rd? Left us with little to no chance of making the planes, let alone make service.
    Shippers simply passing the buck to is.

    I fully expect the same next year. Maybe worst. The last few years have been trending this way. Will UPS shut off the cash cow of air?

    No they may double the price.
    Maybe reduce half the volume but still make the same money for less work.

    All they have to do is in about Oct have a press release that as it starts getting closer to X-mass the price of NDA and SDA are going to go up.

    Kohls was one of the worst offenders. Their label includes the order date, processing date and shipping date. I noticed on Christmas Eve, I was delivering stuff that had been ordered December 9.
