    We are running near peak volume here on both air and ground and it is the middle of summer in Florida when it should be quite slow.

    We are running every available body, vehicle and DIAD that we have.

    We are already running 2 AM shuttles to the airport every morning.

    We had many drivers coming in tonight past 22:00 due to excessive volume.

    We still can not put in enough runs. We have many cars outside on red tag because automotive will not authorize the major repairs needed and the mechanic's hours to fix them.

    When will the bean counters in Atlanta figure out that if we cant handle it now that we are DOOMED at peak?

    Our Hub has been getting slammed for several months as well, I'm a Hub rat though.

    Every sort is FUBAR.

    The Volume has been ridiculous lately though. I can’t wait for those peak checks!

    My building is screwed for peak.

    FE is going to be able to point and say, "I told you so." When UPS chokes on the Amazon volume at peak.

    I am not.
    There is a temp driver in my loop that they are planning on calling back, that will not work past 5p. That means everyone else in the loop works past the air pull time. We have to set up a meet with someone off area, meet, get rid of air and finish. All the extra hoop jumping adds another 30 minutes (minimum) to the end of the day.

    I'll end up between 41 and 42 hours this week. On Pre-Load. Things...could be going more smoothly for sure.

    Sounds like not enough of you guys are wearing your reflective vests when you’re supposed to. 85% compliance means 85% compliance!

    Tell that to the half dozen DQs we’ve had in the past month. We have our own personal peak about to start in about a week with college coming back in session. For some reason they decided to frantically train a bunch of new hires in July and August. This will be our first taste of disaster before the big one in December.
