    Hey guys! I'm in the process of an interview and required to do an assignment. I am trying to identify two innovative strategic priorities over the next 5 years for UPS, and outline possible solutions associated with these strategic priorities. Having UPS deliver on Sundays would be a good example. I would like to hear what ideas you guys may have. Thanks!

    So your plan is to come on the internet and ask people for ideas so that you don't have to do your own job?

    I already have 2 ideas in mind (Sunday deliveries and improve customer service). I'm just trying to get some more insights aside from my own. Further research on the ideas will be done by me

    Having UPS tracking system sync with existing systems clients are currently using is a great idea. This would allow new businesses to easily enroll with UPS if they currently aren't. Thanks for your insight

    To improve service you need to have work loads reduced.
    The big wigs will never go for that becauase it will cut into the record breaking profits ups is making.

    Sunday dels: do you know about dot regulations

    Good luck trying to change the world

    How about 4 10's starting Wednesdays and 4 10's starting on Saturdays. I'd jump on that bandwagon.

    Wouldn't be a bad set up. I like the idea of Saturday ground. But implementation would be extremely difficult. Plus I doubt the current contract would allow it to be done profitably.

    This is actually for an entry level position. The managers just want to see what innovative ideas the candidates have aside from what UPS is already doing

    It's called having other more creative people do your work for you

    Well then F* it! You want strategic, here's one for you. Install missile batteries at every hub aimed at the manager's office and at the package cars. First time a driver is harassed, fire a missile at the manager's office. First time a driver...well nevermind, the supes would be nuked way before so there would be no one to catch a driver doing something wrong.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
