I was just wondering if anyone has noticed in their building signs of UPS cutting costs lately. Seems like UPS has been cutting corners lately on a lot of things in our building. All our trucks are filthy. They haven't been washed in at least 3 months. The washers have that we used to have are gone, including one guy whose sole job it was to clean inside windows in the trucks. Now all our trucks look horrible. Rear doors have hand prints all over them in the dirt, some have writing on them in the dirt. I've had customers comment on mine a couple times in the last month. We've also been told that we cannot order any replacement uniforms until further notice. We are completely out of diad clips, and also have been told that we cannot get any new two wheelers for a 'while'. Truck repairs seem to be going much slower too, and on the issues that are minor, a lot of times nothing seems to have even been done. A lot of times we get the note in the DVIR saying 'checked problem, ok' Yet it's still there. The safety problems on the trucks do get fixed right away though, but one of the 700's I do drive a lot has been constantly billowing a ton of smoke out the exhaust. This despite at least 10 write ups in the DVIR for this problem. I am almost embarrased to drive it around because the diesel puts out so much much smoke, and people have complained to me about it. I have even spoken to the mechanics about it and still the problem remains. I don't know if these things are signs of budget cuts or not, but from my point of view it seems like it. And as far as the uniforms, and truck cleaning goes, I think this is an image problem. We are starting to look like crap out there!
