    What progress are you looking for? Sure post isn't going away, or do you want more to go to sure post? Do tell.

    Yeah that wrapped up about 6-8 months ago I believe.

    Weren't there suppose to be enhancements to that service that let us get some of that work back....?? Have you delivered to the usps before dok?? We use to get about the same amount of packages as fedex in my neck of the woods... Now I'm rolling in there most days with double the volume of FedEx...people have to be idiots to think that UPS isntit going to exploit this. And just because we have sure post doesn't mean that FedEx still can't undercut us on prices ...right

    So these so called enhancements were pretty much just a bunch of BS talk to calm the union down...I guess just more watered down language

    The enhancements are that anyone can stop the progress of an overweight or oversize package.


    Other than that yeah. Blah

    Any Surepost pkg over 10 lbs or a square foot is to be delivered by UPS. Any Surepost pkg on either side of or across the street from an existing UPS stop is to be delivered by UPS.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    We are also supposed to deliver any Surepost to an address receiving one or more non-Surepost packages.

    I believe it is 3 cubic ft, which is quite the good sized package

    From what I understand those morons meant 1 cubic foot. Someone misunderstood 3 and cubic.

    In order for those packages to spa correctly, they have to be address corrected to the resi address. I am seeing more and more of those. I have had 3-4 a day for the past week on a small town, mostly rural route.

    I would find that hard to believe.

    Or my BA is just a moron. 12x12x12 is what we were told.


    3 cubic ft is 24x18x12

    Why would they change it from what the contract states? They can't even enforce what is was. Never heard that change.

    I don't think it was changed. I think he just didn't know.

    You'd think that would be something he would of known.
