I've currently been with ups for 6.5 years and working towards a combo bid. I recently found confirmation that we are in the process of building a new hub that will be completed by the end of 2018. It's also going to be very automated and twice the size of our current hub. My FT sup says there will be no sorters, no pick offs, and no smalls due to this automated system that they will install. My question is will this affect new combo bids or my wait time to win a bid. The current wait time for a combo bid at my hub is 9 years. So hopefully I can win one before all this confusion happens. Also, what they will do to the old hub is make it only for the use of preload and service drivers. "Package drivers". they plan to transfer everyone else to this new hub. New to this site** so any knowledge thrown to me will be greatly appreciated.
