    I'm just a preloader so I don't know much about the package cars themselves. Walking through my facility though there are visual differences between many of the package cars. Some of the obvious differences are size and the front design.

    How many different models of package cars are there? How do you tell them apart?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    Pics of said models?
  4. You aren't allowed to take pictures of your vehicle and post them on social media. You could try and google pics of ups package cars. There are probably a ton of pics.

    My avatar is a 700, I think. At least that's what it was called when I was still there.

    Way too many! I can't list them all. Freightliner, Ford, Isuzu, International, Workhorse, Mercedes, etc. Then there's all the sizes....

    Ok here we go!

    These are the three most common types at my facility.




    The first one looks (to me) to be older than the other two.

    You can tell the first one is older because the package car is actually clean. So clean in fact that you can see the reflections in the paint.
