    Come on man it's completely impossible for them to just stop using USPS and UPS due to the pure volume they produce. A/C unit's, lawnmowers and all that crap will still go trough UPS. What will hurt them is if UPS starts charging them accordingly per package.

    Amazon drivers are delivering a lot of envelopes. Former FedEx volume? No way they are breaking even on it yet.

    Not in our building. I brought long box in the other morning and it was top to bottom with Amazon, tons of small boxes.

    With Over 16% late they may have to reduce the amount they are delivering until their network is improved.I noticed that a lot of their packages that are Miss routed at the distribution center’s are turned over to us. They have the yellow stickers on them and they will say “wrong bin” or something like that.

    Right now all I’m worried about is sharing the road with those idiots. I had one pull up in front of me practically nose to nose at a stop because he did not want to stay on the right side of the road and I have to walk and extra 10 feet or so. I’ve also seen them backing out of driveways onto very busy roads. It’s just a matter of time before one of them seriously hurts someone or themselves.

    So, right now the name of the game for them is Late and Dangerous.

    And what I'm saying is not in our building. Yes are we getting Amazon irregs? Sure but not as compared to the regular pieces. Not even close.

    Amazon began to stop using different ups centers years ago. As they build up their contractors or drivers more and more ups buildings will be cut off.
     
  13. But when you can't squeeze 300 packages into a 1200 something is wrong

    No.
    Never saw this amount of big heavy stuff ten years ago.

    Today I was really light on pieces. Still couldn’t walk through the truck until 2 pm because of the size of crap
     
  19. Sounds like you need a bigger truck
