    Anyone delivering more Staples boxes. Heard they where closing their delivery service. All staples will come UPS or UPS Freight(orders over 500lbs)

    They need to stop putting "Please deliver to front desk or office" on the packages. They get delivered where everything else does.

    Has the same meaning as "fragile" or "this side up"

    I deliver in a small town that is not serviced by any office supply delivery system. I average between 5-25 cases of paper per day. The guy next to me does several schools that all order at one time. On those days he gets 65-70 cases of paper. Gives you something to look forward to.

    That's cool. Guess I'll be the biggest guy in my center. I already deliver 50lb magazine boxes to Barnes N Noble. What's a few more cases of paper on the route? Good comment about fragile and this end up.

    Heard that story some months ago.
    Since a lot of our former mgt types (ie; canned managers ) work at Staples it makes me wonder why they shut down their delivery service.

    I'd rather deliver 300 boxes of paper than 180 dells or gateways.

    Barnes and Noble is a ground floor rear door delivery. ;)

    Two highest costs of a transportation company? Payroll and Fuel. I'm guessing a company like Staples found it's much cheaper for someone with a vested interest in their customer counter that already performs that service to deliver the packages.

    Hmmm. Thought it was strange when I had my first Staples box delivery on Friday. Wondered what was up with that. Canada.

    Yeah, but the receiving person is a 60 year old lady and I have to unload all the pkgs from my TP60 onto my handcart and then bring them into receiving area and unload regular stuff in one area and mags in another:dead:.
    Back when I was a cover driver there was a guy there that you would just slam stuff out to and he would take it inside. So even though it's rear door and stuff the ease is gone. No complaints though, seeing as I'm bigger and stronger than ever. If you want to see my load, go here and scroll down to pictures I have posted from work.

    Love to see cases of paper on the shelf stacked on top of harry and david fruit baskets... lol.

    Now expect 5 or 6 cases of paper going to the second or third floor offices with no elevators :)

    I'll take a bulk stop of books to ground floor any day!
