    The Sandy Springs-based shipping giant said it is adding hundreds more ZIP codes that can get deliveries by 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. UPS said it has offered “Early A.M.” service since 1994, expanded it to an additional 400 ZIP codes earlier this year and on Friday announced it is adding 766 more ZIP codes. The company said more than 87 percent of U.S. businesses can get the service.

    I have faith that Orion will optimize this into all routes smoothly.

    They need to get the Preload down faster. My building is less than two miles south of the Atlanta Airport, the air trailers start hitting the building by 6:15. Our EAM drivers start at 6:30, my Center has an 8AM commit time. The rest of the drivers have an 8:50 start time and I am lucky to actually hit the road by 9:10.
