    Sounds like peak season is starting now, we only got a teaser of it 2 weeks ago.

    We had one this past Monday and haven't received any texts about this monday . Volume can be calculated but usually extra trailers are unloaded so they don't roll any.

    We've been starting at 7:45 for the last few weeks on Mondays. No reason this Monday won't be any different.

    I'm hearing Monday will be normal and Tuesday we'll probably start 1.5 hours earlier than we did Monday. (We've worked every Sunday so far to help our Monday start times stay "normal")

    Our 8:50 normal start time has been moved to 8:25 on Monday the last two weeks. Peak Day is forecasted for Wednesday at my Hub.

    It amazes me what a difference starting 20 or 25 minutes earlier does for your day. Seems UPS would see the huge difference that makes and make that a goal for year round.

    They had us start at 9:30 Tuesday of last week! Felt like they gave up on us getting air out on time.

    Regular start time 8 - 830.
    They posted 845 starting Monday, for the next 2 weeks, but messaged us on Friday we will start at 730 Monday.
    Saturday morning, my center manager texted me 715 start time on Monday, and as early as possible rest of week.
