    Anyone else heard this rumor? Quite a few target boxes in my building today going to resi's. Never seen them before...

    Seen some of their stuff around going back to peak. I'm worried about getting all their oversize volume if we don't match the price increase that UPS says they are rolling out.

    UPS guy on my route told me they switched like a month ago; the increase in target boxes would seem to confirm this.

    Lol. UPS guy agrees, whilst the Ground supposedly residential run and gunner disagrees.

    We're obviously talking over 70s, eh?

    No, not Canadian.

    Who is disagreeing in this thread? Sounds like we're all on the same page. Another large retailer is moving their volume to Ground. Shouldn't surprise anyone. Our horrible service and crazy drivers have attracted another shipper.

    More like they undercut UPS again. But....like many others Target will be back.

    I doubt it. Target worries more about their bottom line than customer service.
     
  11. Take amazon too
    And zappos or whatever that's called

    Did you know Amazon owns Zappos?

    I disagree. Target bricks my truck out everyday. Seems like every target box I get is a kitchen table set.

    I remember in my not so glorious Ground colocation days seeing HD guys lugging plenty of ICs over 100 pounds.

    Quite the :censored3:show! I do not miss it at all.

    I saw Target packages this week. Had one on my truck yesterday. It was the typical Target package. A small heavy item in a big box with not enough packing material.

    It's like anything else. If I want to be around a bunch of crack heads and Mexicans I go shop at Wal-Mart. If I want a fine ass girl ringing up my food products I go to Publix. You guys can be Wal Mart all day, :censored2:ty employees with little to no pay and we can be Publix, stock options and paid more than the rest of the industry.

    So you're comparing yourself to a grocery bagger? Congratulations.
