    Does anyone have any insight on why UPS does not offer relocation of its drivers. (even at drivers own expense) I was an off the street hire 2 years ago after making a career change. I do consider myself lucky to be hired full time right away. As it stands I live in a state where I had relocated to with a past employer and was wondering how I could transfer back closer to family.

    I can imagine that part of the reason is that most drivers would try to re-locate to states where the cost of living is much lower, and part-timers in those states would never get a chance to go full-time because everytime a position opened up, it would be filled by a transferring senior driver from a high cost of living area. I am sure there is more to it, that is just the first thing that came to my mind when I thought about the consequences of allowing drivers to transfer.
