Amazing Amazon

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by SquirrelBoggie, Jun 28, 2016.

  1. In our hub we're doing a trail run with "Amazon" that requires us to start early. Our shift starts about 2 1/2 hours earlier and we run nothing but "Amazon" packages until the start of our shift. Has any of you guys hubs start doing anything like this? Our FT Sup said we gonna try it out for a month to see if it works and if not we may start a day shift.

    That sounds dumb. I guess these guys will be going out with like 60 stops or something after that then?

    After they run Amazon for two and a half hours I assume they won't be running an entire regular day too after that?

    You guys need more imagination. All Amazon has to do is service label these packages air and the company can use a PT air driver to deliver without guarantee or ground pay.

    Think like a greedy corporation.

    Making deliveries at like 4 am? I guess I'm not fully understanding this.

    They are processing trailers full of Amazon packages before they start the regular sort.

    My center can't even get the preload wrapped most of the time. Its out of the question to start them any earlier when they would rather have us $30+/hr guys loading our trucks before we
