Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by undies, Sep 3, 2016.
PCM and manager said we were raising rates like 4%...because we keep getting raises. lol
So, our 1.2% raise on August first equates to a 4% rate hike...Guess this is that typical UPS math again.
It's so they can keep raising the dividends
The average rate increases, set to take effect 12/26, is 4.9%., which is about what the average annual increase has been for the past few years.
Rate hikes are not meant to cover just our wage increases but are designed to cover increases in our operational costs.
I didn't read anything about our fuel surcharges going up.
There was a rate reduction for a segment of our service offerings in early July.
They keep moving the price hike up earlier and earlier. Soon it will be before peak.
At least they stopped having us deliver the new rate charts to our shippers.
Isn't it in the software we deliver?
Should be a downloaded data set.
Rate increases are passed along electronically.
The software that we deliver is normally a product upgrade.
Each yr we raise rates 4 plus%. About 10 yrs ago they only time they did 3 plus.
We need about a 10% rate increase in irregs alone. We can't be charging enough if it's profitable for a company to ship full sized beds and RTS them back.
Wasn't this recently addressed?
Yes, but even those increases haven't put a dent on the volume.
Maybe they weren't increased enough.
I deliver to college housing and can't recall delivering so many mattresses and RTA furniture.
Yeah screw mattresses and RTA furniture. I had to have had 60 pieces of that nonsense in the last two weeks and I only have 1 building in which a majority of its residents are students.
I'm taking vacation the week preceding Labor Day next year.
I had surgery in January for a non-work related injury and used 4 weeks of vacation.
I normally take off the week classes start and the following week.
The have taken the student mail room off of me the last two days as they just wouldn't fit. 200-250 pieces just for that one stop.
We should start seeing Cheggs on Tuesday.
Raising rates on services we fail to provide. I know it's hard to kill a giant. But they are slowly working on it. Lol.
With the increased stops and route cutting and the decrease in gasoline, UPS shouldn't raise rates at all.
Bit they are losing the fuel surcharge money.
I was curious about this as well. Someone school me on our rates compared to other companies
Aren't we already the highest? My.only concern is that UPS prices themselves out of business
