    sad to say but it is what it is. Someone looking at a map understands the area and therefore dispatches the daily load. Stupid is as Stupid does!!

    Bean counters have been running Corporate America & Wall Street my entire life. As UPS didn't go public until the late 1990s, it was largely immune from what most other companies were experiencing.

    But I have a problem with UPS's terminology. Industrial Engineering is a sophisticated science typically offered at the graduate level. Yet we have 20-year-olds working at UPS, who possess merely a HS diploma, calling themselves Industrial Engineers because UPS overlabels the department they work in.

    Finance and accounting people run UPS.

    IE people are just reading numbers from a generated computer program.
    I understand that they are the messenger but little more than that.

    As Sophocles in Antigone and Shakespeare in Henry IV wrote:

    "Don't kill the messenger."

    Most of the decisions I make to get around IE's thought process would make IE cry.

    Cost ("managerial") accountants & industrial engineers are often synonymous nowadays.
