Anyone else notice the lack of Amazon packages in the last week or so?
Didn't notice it until you said something, but I would probably agree that our Amazon volume has been down significantly this past week, yet is hasn't affected our total volume at all.
Nope, still have a ton of it.
Volume in my hub has dropped dramatically and we've seen a ton of dumb being done to try and compensate.
I also heard we were losing a significant chunk of Amazon due to damages.
It's affected our volume in that 20+ split routes aren't running like they were this time last year.
I hardly had any yesterday. I have probably 25 today
Now that you mention it, I probably haven't seen as much as I used to coming out of trailers.
And now that I think of it, this might be kind of a good thing for me so nothing unusual I order gets broken open and everyone knows what I got coming.
Nope still piled in the truck
If they did, I hope we put a strict limit on their Christmas volume.
We've seen a bit of an increase. Mainly just their biggest boxes though. Nothing significant.
I hope we drop them.
I don't think the profit we make off of them is worth it. Amazon is only 5% of our total revenue the discount we give them is just ridiculous. I think we could find a few other customers to replace that 5%
The revenue UPS makes off of them is better than nothing.
Not counting the lost jobs.
I think if any of the carriers could have found a replacement for Amazon they would have by now. Amazon is just too big for any of us to lose.
True you could look at it that way or you could look at the big picture. If I sell 100 boxes at $1 or I sell 1 box for $100 my overhead is not near as much. I think this is what UPS is trying to do is eliminate low cost items. We cant be like Fed Ex or Amazon because of our workers wages and if you have 30 mis loaded Amazon packages and you're paying a top rate air driver $26 an hour to run them around all day you probably didn't make anything off those boxes.
Amazon keeps volume in the hubs. I hope we don't drop them.
The big picture is they are here, paying a portion of our wages and until this fictional account you speak of comes into play we need all the volume we can get.
