    When I first started I remembered they wanted a sales lead every week. Now it hasn't been heard of in years.

    If they didn't have anything to complain about they would complain about that. I heard they have to find at least a one thing to ding you on.

    Check out #17: "impress the shipper with the importance of a set schedule." Seems like UPS could use some of their own advice (ORION, add/cuts, cut routes, etc).

    Yeah I didn't even look at them. Had a manager give it to me because my lack of performance was apparently due to my lack of using the methods.

    He said a "method" was being out of the truck in 7.5 seconds with the package.

    Do they fill that out while on the truck with you or from the bushes across the street?

    They want sales leads? Givem sales leads!
    On Monday, hand them the ads from Sundays Newspaper and tell them
    "Here are leads on sales at various stores this week"
    You said you wanted sales leads, here they are!"

    When they ask me for sales leads I point out that I have had my route for 20 years and I average about 40 business deliveries and with 30 pickups. Of the ten remaining, well over half use prepaid or ODS. The remaining few either don't ship anything or have signed national contracts for other carriers. That usually shuts them up.

    I've seen many switch from daily accounts that occasionally shipped, to occasional shippers with a flag in the window. Just makes sense for them, but I don't know if UPS understands we are still getting the volume generated.
