    If the two companies operated as one do you think peak would of been any better for our customers? Our genius SM mandated that no P2 was to be delivered that was not due on set delivery date be pulled from the belt and loaded into cans, and take a full hour break and not to go over 12 hours this caused major back up and bit SM in the -ss thousands of pkgs sitting on floor of station, no direction or communication from management they lost total control of operation and employees felt if they didn't care why should they. Someone should be held responsible for this major disappointment to our customers. Wake up executive management you reap what you have sowed.

    It's sad to say but the old man and his regime will only take action if the stock drops as a result of this failure. They are counting on customers forgetting about this cluster in a month from now and going back to business as usual. And yes I think it would have been better if both opco operated as one. Probably not great but better.

    It would have been worse. Having two separate companies is what kept us from falling as behind as UPS.

    You keep believing that bro when next year's raise comes up and they are raking in billions in profit. This is what they want you to believe.

    Do we know for sure brown is any further behind than us?

    What? UPS did far better than we did at handling peak. Their issues in no way equal our problems. Maybe you're in one of those miracle stations that don't have 10,000 pkgs sitting on the floor, or maybe even in a can still at the ramp.

    I doubt it. They just decided to admit they won't be delivering everything by today.

    UPS isn't winning the PR campaign by not having their drivers on the road today (volunteers or voluntolds). It would have shown they were taking the public's concerns seriously had they made that move.

    On Christmas? At the very least it gave the customers a chance to try and go pick their stuff up, however futile that would be.

    I live in the NE region and have a lot of family down south. They are WAY behind, especially in Texas, go look at

    I personally had a package go out for delivery with UPS 5 times and i'm still waiting. I'll probably put a Hold At Location (not sure what UPS calls it) tonight.

    You're only proving my point.....

    I"m not saying we will get to enjoy the fruits of our labor; however, if they are raking in billions it's because FedEx's multiple entity strategy is working...

    If all of you got off your anti-FedEx high horse you could see the truth and the lies. So much sensationalism going on in this forum. I'm not saying the Company is as great as it use to be, or that it will ever get there again, but with pure sensationalism and blind sided hate you all will see no progress in the direction you want from this company.

    As I've said before, i am almost done with my schooling and start an internship soon, I will gone soon and am glad I decided to complete my education.

    The only point I'm making is that separating the opco is to increase profit not service.

    So if we lose the blind-sided hatred, we will begin to see progress in the direction we want from this company? That's all it will take?... The solution was all so simple. I feel so foolish now. I thank you for opening my eyes.

    No, once you end your blind sided hatred, you can focus on making the proper steps to attempt to fix what is broken.
