I wonder how UPS drivers delivered packages back in the 1980's since they didn't have bar code scanner devices.
Cody Gaither (28 days ago)

Im guessing you work for fedex ground? I dont think fedex express drivers load their van. I could be wrong tho? I almost had a job with fedex ground, but didnt like how it was salary based. I wanted to be an emplyee with all the benefits and teamsters union. I was also a broker for 15 years running my own van ect. Wasnt paying off and no time off EVER!!! unless you had someone to drive your van and cover you which i didnt. I now work for UPS and things have been much better that i don't have to bring my work home with me anymore, and i get vacation time now =) UPS also pays the best out of all the major couriers in my area Ottawa, Canada.

Yeah I work for ground I’m not sure if express loads their vans or not. But I agree I wish we could get benefits and all of that as well. I’m glad you doing good and everything! Thanks for the info

I'm a UPS driver. Today I delivered 250 stops, 485 packages. Started at 9 a.m., clocked out 11 p.m.

morcuilo that's a long day, I had (UPS) 170 stops and close to 300 packages one day ran scratch and was done by 6pm didn't get out the hub till almost 10am that day...I.m sure glad we don't have to sort or load our trucks... although some days it feels that way with as much crap they pile in my truck..

Idk how y’all do it!

HELL NO just looking at all those boxes will freak me out
Cody Gaither (3 months ago)
Haha you would get used to it

Do you use road worrier app too? If so do you plug in all the addresses on the manifest sheet to the app and adjust the boxes on the truck according to that?

Shinryu101 writing sequence numbers can help but over time I got tired of writing sequence numbers on boxes for the most part. Usually I roll old-school now. The reason is I get packages reassigned or pipped to me from other routes because I am my bosses damage control so I try to focus more on the actual Shipping label to make sure I grabbed the right box for the right stop. It’s happened before where’s sequence number changed at close out because of packages being moved to my route during sort.... then I discovered I dropped a box off at a previous stop and have to backtrack.
Scott D (5 months ago)
Your first day sounds about what mine was box-wise. Now I do double that on an average day. Time flies. My body sure is bulletproof from all of those dang chewys too
Scott D (5 months ago)
Shinryu101 you’ll get used to it all. I’ve had to force myself to slow down over the years. I had some lady once call in a complaint I left her apt too fast after I buzzed her. Apparently I could write a service cross, door tag, and code it in under 30 seconds. Haha so these days I focus on being smooth all day no rush no big mistakes no backtracking. Just stayin in the flow and those stops just fall right off magically for the most part... till FURNITURE FOR A 3rd FLOOR APT AGAIN!? Haha not really, but...

+Shinryu101 congrats man. Good luck to you. Yeah HD you can put the sequence number on the box it helps. In about a week or two you’ll be fine especially when you learn the route!
Shinryu101 (5 months ago)
And writing the sequence number on the box was a big help.
