    Man what a last few couple of days. All the amazon, cell phones, tablets, laptops, and other junk. Been average a additional 20 stops or more on my route. Plus the plane been getting in late everyday. Just have to wonder what going to happen this peak.

    Heck talking about peak, we don't even have enough trucks, batteries or power pads to have more routes on the roads. Should of seen the facial expression of the Gatekeeper when I ask the question the other day. Heck I need a battery to just run a dbl the other day, and it was like pulling teeth to get that battery.

    Even more late planes and undelivered freight piled up in stations after Christmas.

    Cactus Just telling it like it is

    Come December 20th and after, it's not gonna help one bit. All these companies still promising to get your Christmas gift to you as late as December 23rd. Still see it year after year. Ground service won't cut it. A little too much, too late.

    Welcome Clusterphuck 2014. Ho Ho Ho!

    Well if they are going to prepare for peak2014, they had better get started soon.
