    I'm guessing they are talking about the chemicals and things municipalities use to clean the water they pull from rivers and lakes.

    Which day do you think truck stops and rest areas would overflow with piss bottles? All those truck parked, you can't expect the drivers to walk all the way to the restrooms.

    Yeet Inbound, turnaround, go to town

    Every truck stop I’ve been to reeked of piss even with 24/7 restrooms within walking distance.

    So our building currently runs a large Sunday night sort that sends out a bunch of bypass loads early Monday morning after the sort goes down.

    In the near future our Sunday night sort will be moving to Friday night, running after our twilight finishes, which means it will run into Saturday morning. In buildings with this type of sort, do the loads usually depart Saturday morning or later in the weekend?

    Management isn't telling us anything, but those Monday runs are our most desirable bids. If they all go Tuesday-Saturday the old timers will probably stroke out! :)

    Can Amazon pull UPS loads to the hub and then release them to us?? If so, then that is what they are doing.

    When was the pic taken? Was it during peak? Can they pull our equipment during peak like the gypsies? The pic was taken by someone in a white tractor. Rental?

    We had the same issue here. We would go to Amazon and they would tell us they didn’t have any of our empties, then when we would be in the lot dropping the load an Amazon tractor would be pulling one of ours off property. They were empties they were bringing to Amazon’s off site lot, where we get them after they are brought there.

    An Amazon contractor cannot pull a UPS load to a building. That’s ludicrous. Only way they are doing that is with some top secret company deal. It’s not happening.

    I took it the day I posted it. I’m in a USPS tractor, they’re white.

    Incorrect.

    We have customers that refuse to allow a Union employee on their premises. We have non-Union contractors deliver the empty trailers to the accounts and then bring the full loads back to the hub.

    Well your local is a bunch of F’n *&*$&*& then. Sounds a lot like Willow Grove. Coyotes on property 24-7-365, waltzing around dispatch getting marching orders like we are one in the same.

    They won't let a Union employee on their premises, yet they'll give their money to a Union company? That doesn't make a lot of sense.
