My guess is that the change in commit has more to do with time in transit. The story on the front page speaks to the Fed using Worldport to stage covid19 supplies. I wonder if UPS is planning for an eventuality where they cannot carry some savers because of covid19 supplies.
Even if they turn commit times off we as drivers need to do the right thing when it comes to some packages. The NDA shoes can definitely wait until end of day, but if you see critical care NDA medicine then get that stuff delivered asap! Those people actually need that stuff early so we need to give the impression that we care even if the company doesn't. And if anyone in management says a single *ing word to you bury them in harassment grievances because the company makes us take the diad training that says we should be delivering critical care FIRST.
