    welovelogistics What can brown do for you

    I'm a UPS employee & I figured I'd ship a package up to Sheffield, MA through brown. UPS correct center is Pittsfield, MA.

    It wound up in Shrewsbury, MA and its been stuck there for three days. The wrong center is supposed to process an "internal intercept" on the item for this weekend, according to correspondence from the channels I reached out to as an employee and UPS support.

    Nothing has updated since the weekend. I'm praying I don't get the ol' "your package is a day delayed because of our mess" b/s

    Lol

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    There will be no updates over the weekend as the folks responsible for that do not work on the weekend.

    Your package will be delivered on Tuesday.

    1 day late means free shipping. I'd take that.

    Shrewsbury 0169 also known as Worma ( Worcester ) is a Hub, most pkgs end up here or Chelmsford hub , may have had damage or label fell off, it's normal to go thru Worma or Chema before final center and destination

    I think that package had a big hole in the side of it. Caught in a jam?

    In the last 10 years I've shipped 3 packages thru UPS. 2 of the 3 were lost. Good luck with yours.

    I ship several every year(Probably avg >1/month), never had one lost or damaged, you must be doing something wrong.

    realbrown1 Annoy a liberal today. Hit them with facts.

    You are a UPS employee and you don't know we don't move packages over the weekend except for Saturday air?

    New employee?

    Those people on that side of the state don't even know where Pittsfield is. They don't venture west of Worcester because 1.They believe that Massachusetts ends at Worcester and 2. They're afraid of all the dragons that run wild out here.
