    Has anyone seen the episode of UPS Worldport on Ultimate factories on National Geographic? They follow three pkgs from pick up to delivery.

    Yes!

    I recorded it so I would not miss it. I learned about the show right here in BC. It really is a great endorsement and shows all the ins and outs of UPS. I saved the recording in case anyone who might start asking me a lot of questions might want to see it.

    It is kind of like looking through an old photo album. Every once in a while you want to open it up and check it out.

    I saw it this morning. It was very interesting. Worldport looks like a fascinating facility to work at.

    I thought it was too fake, I've never seen pkgs handled so gently and carefully. It was more like a training video on proper hand to surface methods or something.

    The Tulsa center is still in the stone-age compared to Worldport.

    I agree. Trucks were empty and spotless too.
