    Well, the teams met in Atlanta on Monday. Essentially, we have a 3 month timeframe to put Sunday delivery in place. Meanwhile, Saturday isn’t right and corporate pillaged the districts for this rollout right before peak. It baffles me why we didn’t announce 7 day until January 2020. I get we need to be aggressive, but we are at the height of peak planning! What’s everyone’s consensus?

    The height of peak planning doesn't start until November 27

    Lots of projects coming down the pipeline with no regard for those who are tasked to make it work. Another good MIP would help with the anxiety of doing five things at one time and some of them not as good as you would like.

    This is the day when hours and hours of conference calls, millions of emails come into play and essentially the plan gets crushed on the first day.

    I have had several successful peaks the several years under a certain DM but alas he has now retired. I am looking forward to re-inventing the wheel, it has already begun.

    Peak planning began right after last peak. If Districts didn't adjust to what is to come after Prime week then they are already in a up hill battle. Here...not enough trucks, DIADs, train service providers, or inside employees.

    That hiring freeze destroyed any chance of being properly staffed for peak. We are dangerously short staffed for inside employees

    They only bright side about being understaffed is I will have a fighting chance of getting a parking space. Its such a s-show anymore.

    There was no hiring freeze...allegedly. Operations was certainly shocked by that statement...
