Well, I am a fan of Tennessee Ernie Ford's song 16 tons and it seems so fitting to sing that at work. Now I started wondering how much freight do I actually load into the feeders. The sheets say I should get about 900 packages per 26 foot trailer, let's go with a more realistic number of 800 assuming for bulk, bad load quality and just general human error (we do have that at UPS sometimes, right?) Also, assuming that each package weighs on average 25 pounds, that comes up with 20,000 pounds per trailer which would be 10 tons. I was wondering if any feeder drivers or anyone else in the chain knows the actual preload weight and postload weight.
