Did ups lose the pro flowers contract cause i haven't seen that many around this time of the yr?
Amazon has it.
They're forcing us in on Saturday to deliver them
How about on Black Friday?
*eff' walmart, krogers, etc....they all get their St. Patty Hallmark cards the same week.
Nothing says "I really don't care", more than pro flowers.
We went from Omaha steaks and flower packed ULDs , to mere scraps
1800, pro, and one or two more used to dominate our network. FTD.
now it’s all amazon garbage. Easily 80/20.
Amazon just two years back was only 30% of our volume.
This worries me.
We need to diversify a lot more.
Yes we did. And layoffs have begun here because of it.
Everyone complains about no volume, yet everyone begs to go home.
Dude you are not lying on this one I bought my wife some one Valentine’s Day and she was not happy,lesson learned.
Cannot buy a day at my building
Now she get nothing .
The green flower boxes? still getting these ones.
Instructions here are : You Dr those flowers, it doesn't matter if is on the side walk just don't send again them.
What'd she get you?
Teeth and a warning not to do it again
What deal! Where do I sign up?
We followed that & we still lost the account... quite a few also had bad addresses when I was delivering them.
Oh... never mind
Probably about 10 years ago,every Valentines was a show.. I was a clerk at the time,so many flower boxes,yet Big Brown would not put enough people on the slides and sort aisles. We must have destroyed 1 out 10, and that is a conservative estimate
Yes, we lost ProFlowers due to the Union negotiating the best contract ever. The price increases that UPS has to pass on to these companies to pay us such an inflated hourly rate and benefits package is causing many shippers to look elsewhere.
