UPS Ready for 2014 Peak Season, Forecasting Record Holiday Deliveries
Just because we lost a day off. Then on Monday they cut areas. We are doomed. The higher ups are have in control. Don't. Worry
My bank account is ready. Bring it on.
Cheers to that
Me too... for April!
I can do my job. Can management do theirs?. Load me up and get me out of the building,on time!
We rolled five loads
/10000 pkgs hahahahaha
The last part of that is what they fail most often at.
10000 is a busy day for us.
For I've gotta pkg.
We are pretty much ready unless we get hit with an outgoing next day air storm, then we are totally ed. If they don't give us relaxed air soon we will have a ton of service failures
Heard NEWPA rolled close to 100k.....
Day one..... rolling work in NJ...... no clue..... thank God its a great franchise
Got in this morning for 7:45 start and most of the package cars were blown out. Was told they ran a bunch of extra loads that they weren't supposed to run. Oh joy!! But made some monies
Your buddies on the hub side were notorious for sending us cold loads all through peak.
Drove four trucks today on kamikaze missions trying to save as many cardboard soldiers that I could...
Couldn't save them all.
I'll be haunted for the rest of...the next ten minutes.
We're not ready in my center...we're loading trucks in the aisle between the rest of the trucks with little stand up rollers. Because that's a good, efficient idea.
We're loading trucks out of little 'pop-up food-truck style' belts outside the building where the trailers normally dock.
Because that makes sense (until, invariably, several drivers spend forty minutes unloading the packages from rentals into brownies...who do we blame for that? dispatch?)
I sincerely hope that the 'plan' I was told was being put in place is just getting worked out and the kinks will be straightened and this peak will be awesome.
Once again, UPS is determined to make my paycheck as large as possible.
What you described is how my center has done peak for the last 15 years at least. Seemed to work ok before.
