    Hi all I am in my 4th week at UPS working on ramp. I am having trouble deciding what direction to push UDL off dolly onto k loader, what locks to pull up and having trouble getting the locks to come up. I find I have to wiggle them hard sometimes. Any tips to doing these things easier and faster? Any employee handbooks out there detailing the steps to loading and unloading the planes? Any help I'd appreciated as information on Google and U Tube seems scarce. Thanks!

    Are you the only person working on that ramp?

    Ask your supe what the rules are about working when there is thunder and lightening.
    I know of an incident of lightening striking the thing that lifts the igloos up to the plane.
    The next day there was a "help wanted" ad in the local newspaper for that third party employer.

    Skipper1, have you received any training? ULD - Unit Load Device. You push it onto the Loader when loading the plane and onto the Dollie when offloading the plane. Yes the locks can be troubling sometimes, do you have the strength to pull them up and drop them down? Your questions lead me to believe you need to get off the ramp immediately before you get hurt or hurt somebody. Try Jimmy Johns.

    I should have known this thread was going to produce :censored2: answers! No stupid, Jimmy John's is not in my future. I'm doing a good job there and I'm in college working towards a degree. Take your sarcastic answers and shove them!

    You need to be a little more specific, there are locks everywhere. Are you talking about spinning cans before they go on to the k loader?

    Take it easy when you're rolling those cans into the trailers, I'm trying to get some sleep.
