Our hub had early start times for night sort (which didn't make any sense because twilight didn't finish in time, and everyone knew that would happen). We had about 15k (about 20%) more volume than normal, and all the seasonal hires are gone so we were shut off about 1/3 of the time so the load lines could play catch up...
Could all of that extra work come from that train derailment we had before christmas
Seems like a big difference in time but I dont remember that many xmas packages being delivered after the holidays until yesterday
Extremely heavy here too, so much pick-up volume from Wednesday that train ran out of room for trailers, they sent several loads with contractors. Saw the sign-up sheet here to recall all willing driver helpers. Word was they think more business than normal worked New Years Eve, so two days worth of volume in one. Time will tell real soon, so much for their technology, did they stop asking pick-up accounts if they would be working certain holidays?
