    I've been going out with late November volume levels the past 2 weeks, I'm talking having containment issues 8 out of the past 10 days as well. Anyone else noticing a big bump in delivery volume?

    Maybe when the tax rebate and the refunds are out, things will improve. I think the Gas prices may help package delivery as the people save the gas by shopping on the internet.

    I don't know I still pay alot to ship to my house,sometimes even more than what gas would cost me to drive to the mall. I laugh at my wife when she screams about shipping charges on something she gets off the web.

    We are starting to see lighter volume. Not lighter loads! We just cut 8 cars every day and slam the other 32 guys. Ten hour day yesterday, and my buddy spent the day at the unemployment office.

    Did your center recently go PAS? PAS is designed to distribute packages on-demand as the sort is going on. The goal is to have 20 fully loaded cars as opposed to 25 cars that are not at full capacity. Less fuel, less mileage, and less to pay drivers. It's all about cramming 10 pounds of poop in a 5 pound bag.

    we have had the psa system for about 3 years or so.
