    Just from reading the posts from both the Fedex and UPS side of the story it sounds like in the deliver business there isn't any such thing as "on time" anymore. Its more like when they can get around to it because today there is an inch of snow on the ground or its raining or just because they can "Emergency Conditions" anything -anytime. JMO

    Cactus Just telling it like it is

    The days of "the world on time" are pretty much over.

    Now it's "we're here to please Wall Street so screw everybody else."

    Sadly, the customer service part of the equasion has been forced out.

    What? And provide the customers what they pay for? That's just crazy talk.

    I thought maybe, just maybe this week would run better than last. Nope, dead wrong. Late freight, some PO didn't even make it over the border. The only days that run the way they should any more are Mondays.

    The world on time, if you're lucky.

    Today wasn't bad for us, our last truck is Memphis and they were only 40 minutes late which at this point is on time

    Heck didn't even leave the building till 10 am. The only good on these days are basically stream lining them. Got my hour of overtime and got out. I do wonder how bad it is right now in Memphis to be handler or ramp agent unloading and loading these planes.

    Left the building at 1000, went back for second sort at 1130, finally left again at 1245. Now almost 2000, and I'm on break.

    Eventual Express, when it absolutely, positively might need to be there in the next week or so.

    We're going on week 3 of "national service disruption" almost everyday.

    Expect the same for the rest of the week.
    The only F1 we accepted today was from regular customers, NO ON CALLS!!!
    Memphis is really backlogged with almost 100 positions to move, but since we decided to get rid of all our large aircraft, and now all we have are much smaller 757's and 767's we can't move what customers want to ship.

    I'm pretty grateful the majority of our freight comes from Newark seems like this week is 100% better for us than the last 2 weeks

    There are also no cans in Memphis because they trucked freight in from around the US last week. Guess they are finally starting to get caught back up as flights resume and cans are starting to trickle in.

    Why? Can't imaging there being more than one of those ugly things in the system anyways...

    It also doubles as the driver's residence. Adds a whole new meaning to the term "home delivery".
