In 2010, UPS ditched its iconic slogan, "What can brown do for you?" in favor of the more emotional and efficiency-oriented "We heart logistics." In 2015, the company cut the heart out of the equation, no longer professing its love for logistics and instead adopting the motto, "United Problem Solvers." While the latter two slogans sound less friendly, you could argue that they better reflect one of the unifying philosophies of the United Parcel Service: time is money, and if you want to save both...you can't waste a single second. In 2014, UPS employee Jack Levis explained to NPR… "Just one minute per driver per day over the course of a year adds up to $14.5 million." The pressure to shave off minutes from deliveries is increased by the number of stops UPS makes. For instance, according to the Chicago Tribune, in 2017, the company was slated to deliver 750 million packages worldwide between Thanksgiving and Christmas alone. To ensure the fastest deliveries humanly possible, and perhaps even super-humanly possible, UPS equips its trucks with sensors that track every movement a driver makes. When the company discovered that using a key to open doors was eating up precious seconds, keys were replaced with push-button key fobs. Drivers avoid making left turns to save time and fuel. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, trucks aren't air-conditioned because the average UPS delivery person opens their cargo bay doors 130 times a day. Similarly, during deliveries, drivers leave the passenger door open in order to make leaving the vehicle more efficient. Considering how often the doors are open during deliveries, it makes financial sense not to equip delivery vehicles with air conditioning. But that reasoning seems to assume that drivers won't stop mid-delivery to cool off on those long summer days when the sun seems determined to boil you alive. According to NBC News, UPS drivers have recorded temperatures in the truck as high as 152 degrees, and as Live Science notes, hyperthermia sets in for most people after only about 10 minutes in extremely humid, 140-degree heat. NBC also reports that various medical records and interviews showed that… "UPS workers have convulsed, fainted and landed in the emergency room with heat-induced kidney failure." So while UPS's candy-bar-colored trucks won't melt, the humans steering them probably feel like they're drowning in hot chocolate when Mother Nature cranks up the heat. In August 2016, 59-year-old James Klenk suffered heat stroke and kidney failure after several consecutive days working in his brutally hot truck. He spoke to NBC about his terrifying experience. In 2018, Klenk's wife, Theresa, started an online petition demanding that UPS provide air-conditioned trucks for its drivers. The company expressed appreciation for its drivers' efforts but noted that, quote… "Working outdoors throughout the year is the nature of the job." UPS only keeps a small fleet of air-conditioned trucks for trips that cross the California desert. But that's no consolation to drivers in other trucks when every road feels like a flaming desert and their minds start to play tricks on them. UPS is a well-oiled machine, and as the cogs behind the wheel, drivers are expected to be as efficient as mechanically possible. The obvious problem with treating people like machine parts is that they aren't hardwired to function like robots. Employees need time for basic human functions, like refuelling their bodies and, when nature calls, using the bathroom...which is something most robots don't have to worry about. In 2015, an anonymous UPS driver identified as "Bill" told the Nation that something as simple as using the restroom was considered, in his words, "stealing time" from the company. Bathroom visits weren't the only kind of waste the company frowned upon. Bill also said… "If you turned the truck on before you put on your seat belt, that's wasting gas." Sensors recorded when his foot was on the brake, how far he backed up everything. And UPS isn't alone in monitoring every millisecond of an employee's day. In 2013, FedEx warehouse employee, Reynalda Cruz, suffered inflammation in her arm because of a scanner that tracked her every movement, and when she slowed down because of the pain, she was ordered to speed up. Similarly, according to the Verge, Amazon automatically tracks warehouse workers and fires them for not meeting productivity quotas. Unfortunately, when companies obsess over cutting costs, staff members often pay the price and, in the end, do you really want your packages delivered by an overworked and underappreciated employee? #UPS #FedEx

UPS Delivery Guy vs. Icy Driveway
 
00:34
Last week we had an ice storm. My driveway was smooth, wet ice... super slippery. I heard the UPS truck pull up so I opened the garage and told him to just leave the package at the sidewalk and I'd figure out a way to get it, but he insisted on getting it to me. Above and beyond... this guy is awesome.

How Amazon Shipping Works ft. UPS, FedEx

Wonder how Amazon Prime can get you a product within one/two days? Amazon’s Distribution network is intricate but efficient. It’s fulfillment centers are the heart of the operation and connect to other distribution centers. It still mostly relies on 3rd party logistics providers like UPS and FedEx. Its own fleet of planes and trailer trucks is gradually growing but still only responsible for a fraction of the packages. This video was an oversimplification.

As Amazon Air Expands, FedEx And UPS May Suffer

Amazon aims to compete with FedEx and UPS in the logistics and shipping industry. That's what analysts told CNBC after Amazon Air recently expanded to 50 planes and announced it will open a $1.5 billion air hub in Northern Kentucky in 2021. Amazon is handling up to 26% of its own shipping, meaning FedEx, UPS and the U.S. Postal Service are losing a portion of Amazon's business. FedEx says it's not worried, but Morgan Stanley reports the major shippers have already lost 2% revenue to Amazon Air. » Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.
