Peak starting early

Any other stations getting killed the past couple weeks?

It seems like Monday/Wednesday and Thursday we are hitting peak numbers and it’s only November.

It’s going to be an ugly one

We've been busy for close to two months now. They have added close to 10 new routes since labour day and we still have days management is begging people to come in early or stay late.

Our peak plan starts on Wednesday but I think * is really going to hit the fan starting Monday.

Yeah our peak plan won’t be in place for 2 weeks yet, our senior actually tried to tell us he thinks it will slow down for a few weeks........

Yeah it’ll slow down in December when we’ve been busy since September

Christmas is on Tuesday this year. Which is earlier than most years.

I guess technically it’s earlier than the years when it’s on Weds, Thurs, Fri, or Sat...but I’m not understanding how Xmas being on a Tuesday this year is making us busier right now.

Besides literally everything on the internet being free 2 day shipping i really don’t know where this volume came from.

Honestly I haven’t seen it this busy in a really long time

wouldn't know, I'm on FMLA taking care of my wife after hip replacement surgery :wink-very: As tough as being a nurse/cook/laundress/gofer etc can be, it sure beats working..

Our station's been a bit heavier. But, we're delivering next day's freight. As for being ugly.....maybe people are just ordering early.

Huh?

We've been heavy since August and we're also doing next-days just to stay ahead of the freight because apparently nobody can plan for spikes in our area.

We’re getting hit with a snowstorm currently. Should keep things ridiculous for the next 4 weeks.

On line sales this past Wednesday through Black Friday up 26.3% from last year. Cyber Monday expected to smash last year's record.
