Hi: I recently came across your site--and it is just what I have been looking for. I have often wondered about the opinions of other UPSers across the country. First, a brief background--I started at UPS in 1973, as a part-timer. I began driving in 1977, and went into Feeders in 1983. I am in Grand Rapids, MI. I have many questions, but I will start out with just one. As I said, I have been a Feeder driver for 20 years. For the past several years, I have worked out of one of the package car centers, making deliveries and pickups out of a tractor trailer. (It used to be called TDP/CPU, but I don't know if there is even a name for it any longer.) I was part of the plan that brought Feeder Drivers into the centers--back in the mid to late 90s. There were a few unforeseen flaws in this set-up, but overall, things worked well. My question is: I was told recently, that we in Grand Rapids, are the only ones in the country that are still operating under this system--Evidently, it was a failure, and long ago, everyone else went back to the old way of doing things--whatever that may have been. To make a long story short, as everyone knows, the volume has gone down, and there have been many changes--one of which, is that I am now delivering out of a straight truck (we call them BBTs--big brown trucks) in the morning, and coming back for my tractor trailer in the afternoon. Ironically, I am delivering more out of this truck (with no rollers) than I did out of the trailer. I am curious what the set-up is in various places across the country. Thanks!
