After watching and reading this topic for a few weeks I am thrilled with this information! Having been a driver (long, long ago) I do feel for those of you with unbelievably high dispatches. Generally companies will not hire as business increases until they are sure it is permanent. This is just a fact of life in the business world and UPS is no different from the rest. The really good news here is if this high dispatch is true in most areas the economy is truly improving. In my years with UPS I always found it to be somewhat of a leading indicator of the general economy. The turning point here is the post by proups about the dispatch. The only way to bring that down is to hire and that's great news for the general economy. I'm sure this will also be great news for those overdispatched drivers and overworked inside employees (supervisors and managers too).
