    At the hub I am working at there are a lot of rumors floating that Louisville is hurting BAD for OTR drivers. Anyone know if there is any truth to that? I didn't think UPS was hurting for OTR drivers anywhere.

    Perhaps they should call Coyote.

    Define "OTR".

    Sleeper? Mileage? Regular feeder driver?

    I spoke with them down there when i had a tun there this week. If anyone is curious, they are indeed hurting for OTR and Team drivers.

    I thought everything flew out of Lousville.

    Anything that can make commit in a truck, goes by truck. Way cheaper than flying.

    Sometimes NDA sent ground are delivered on time when the NDA on planes is late.

    In my building on average we send more NDA through the ground network than we do air.

    It ticks me off when the government sends packages NDA to towns 10 and 40 miles away... or even just in town. Waste of tax money. And I pay a lot of it.

    Government contracts are deeply discounted.

    UPS moves a lot of air OTR with the sleeper teams, especially on the weekends when the planes aren't flying.

    Even with discounts ground is much cheaper for the exact same service. But the government folks generally do not care nor even think about it.

    Tell customers the plane takes off and lands at the same airport.

    That's right. They like taxing UPS guys! $500 to $800 a week in taxes. Who wouldn't?
