Curious to read what others experienced at their respective hubs as to the overall peak season. My take is that this season seemed to be heavier due to online shopping, even the big box retailers deliveries were a little lighter than last year but the residential stops grew as the week went by. Normally, my stop count goes down as the week progresses but this year the opposite happened, stops went up making Thursday and Friday peak days. We got a little taste of what can occur when many individuals take to the computer for Christmas shopping, my guess is that peaks season's will continue to gradually get worst. I read on the UPS Headlines threads were UPSTATE made a reference to UPS having a smooth peak due to overall good weather across the US. This could be a reason why every day was heavier than the previous one. My fear is that many more Americans take to the internet for shopping and combine it with a year where the climate doesn't interrupt UPS operations to make the perfect storm in where the unthinkable happens, UPS can't contain and deliver its promised services. Maybe it can happen, look at Best Buy, the company couldn't process all of its orders in time for Christmas.
