Florida says that we work 14 hour days. There are not enough drivers here. It is the same every year in my building.
We all know the song and dance- too many people called in today, more packages came in than were forcast, etc etc.
I also do not see peak until at least next Thursday. In my area, it is almost always two days before Christmas Eve. Even then the down side of peak is not significant enough to be a welcomed drop in the volume.
I also read the DOT regs as stating 12 hours, but UPS here says that since we get in and out of the vehicle and our time is not continuous behind the wheel, we are exempt from the 12 hour rule. I wish that it wa written in stone! I am tired!
