    Hi All,
    New seasonal driver here and tomorrow will be my 1st day on the road alone after 3 days with on road surpurvisor. I just resigned from usps as a TEMP carrier after 5 yrs to try and get a career. I just want to know how any packages per hr should I be doing for bosses yo consider keeping me after the holidays with this new contract. I don't wanna go to slow or too fast. Also, it will be residential for now. Any help or general info or tips would be much appreciated.

    ​ Thank You

    If you are asking about stops per hour as your question should be, it would be determined by how close all your stops are to one another. Get with the driver/s that usually do the area that you will be doing and ask them what they usually average.

    Tell me about it. I have a bunch of old Raleigh bikes in the basement.

    Oh, and one Follis (French). That's even worse.

    What size? As I remember, a worn-out half-inch was a popular substitute.

    Yes will never be fast enough so don't worry about being to fast. The object is to be smooth and steady which is a lot faster than running around like idiot.

    You're looking for a number which no one has provided yet. A rough standard is about 18-22 STOPS per hour. No one counts pieces per hour.

    Obviously though, this number can vary significantly based on location. Those in the middle of nowhere, might only do 5. Those in a city might do 35+.

    every route is different as well as every center...you can compare stops per hour from daily supervisor reports...just keep one thing in mind at UPS there is no such thing as to fast.......
