..and once again, tracking information on the very same package stopped dead on Friday just as it did last week and hasn't been updated since.

I would like for YouTube to kick UPS off of YouTube if they're not going to allow any comments on their videos nor on their channel. It is outright cheating to put on your PR face and not allow people to complain about you playing "Keep Away" with their packages by sending them back and forth between the coasts for no apparent reason while they're addressed to a place pretty much in the middle. There is no upside to this for anybody. They are causing me to wait far longer than necessary for no reason at all, while also wasting resources to rub in the face of Biggie Smalls's fans, etc. that this package is capable of doing what he couldn't manage back in '97, reaching and then leaving California and returning to New York unscathed.

a general overview - but a LOT of mis-information shown. Example - Worldport has had 70 aircraft docking stations for many years now. Also - the building shown at 4:37 is not a "local hub" - that is the Chicago Area Consolidation Hub or CACH, which processes over 1.5 million pieces per day, from all points to all points. Send a package from Detroit to Las Vegas - it goes through CACH. Send a package from Fargo to Cleveland - CACH, etc etc etc

How about UPS teaches their drivers to actually go into apartments complexes when delivering a package instead of speeding past them like douchebags?

Sulfen (2 years ago)
It's amazing how complex their systems are. Only times their packages are late are when they're too lazy and give it to USPS to deliver it to my house.
Sirphil 0267 (1 year ago)
Hi Sulfen....Let me update your statement. In order to reduce costs UPS and the Postal Service developed a program called UPS Surepost. UPS will pick up the package at the departure point (I'll say LLBEAN in Maine) and deliver it to the Post  Office  (USPS) facility nearest the addressee's home. UPS drivers DO NOT simply 'give' packages to the postman. They are not like that!!
Sulfen (2 years ago)
+MeFigaYoma D Oh, I see. It has happened with 3 random packages from Amazon using Amazon Prime. I have no control over it.
Alexander Shtov (2 years ago)
They only give it to USPS to deliver when it's UPS Surepost, which is a different service (that costs less for the shipper). So if you don't like them handing off packages to USPS you need to talk to whoever you're ordering from.

John Mccalister (2 years ago)
2 little known facts about Worldport from someone who was there throughout its construction, the conveyor system for irregulars, or irregs, was inspired by Rollercoaster Tycoon. They built the ENTIRE facility and had to push the opening back because they FORGOT to add an irreg system. So, they had to figure out what to build AND build it around existing conveyors. That's why it goes over the top of everything else, instead of underneath, like in the old Grade Lane hub. The other thing is the construction time. It "officially" took 3 years to build but the last year was spent just trying to get the software that runs the automated sorting systems to stop shutting itself down every time it detected a new package. During this time, we nicknamed the new building "the $2 billion paperweight" because we really started to believe that they would never get that thing going. They eventually worked everything out and now she purrs like a kitten

This UPS hub is wonderful but is still unusual. At most UPS hubs packages are still sorted by hand. Most UPS hubs still have sort aisles. For those who are hired and can stay with the company longterm UPS is wonderful to work for. Be safe everyone and watch those missorts!!

I work for UPS as a preloader and it's not a bad job it just requires a lot of muscle and thinking.
Jerome Narine (1 year ago)
You have 30 days to prove yourself to the managers, and after the 30 days you can sign up with the union giving you job security but that's if your kept on to work for the company.
jonh 866 (2 years ago)
+MrPhil0267 i know that. But my question is...was i enrolled with the union on my first day or do i have to wait a certain amount of days to become a member????
MrPhil0267 (2 years ago)
+Zack 777 Signing up for the union is not a requirement for employment or to keep a job. UPS cannot fire  employees who leave the union or choose not to join. They can fire you for fighting, missorts (packages going into the wrong trailer and therefore the wrong destination). An employee can also be let go for other reasons as well. Being late is one of them. Showing up drunk or any type of theft are grounds for immediate termination. Be safe....
jonh 866 (2 years ago)
+Jerome Narine i have a question. This is a union job right? and if so, if they dont like u within 2 weeks would they be able to fire u.

UPS, pay to have 2 packages delivered Get one sent 1,024Km away from your destination and the other one sent back to you almost a month later looking like if someone purposely placed 3 tons of weight on top of it to break everything in there after stealing all your valuables. Great service you offer UPS, good thing FedEx actually cares about the costumer and if they mess up they actually refund you of all you money and give you back the $1,000 insurance you payed on the boxes too. -Mmmm imagine a world without fraud, no wait, that will never happen, because your still here.      I hope nobody else falls for your BS of a service!!!

+Trombone Everyday you're*   - You can continue your bitching now.
Nathan Ridenour (2 years ago)
+Trombone Everyday well it sounds to me like you had shitty customer service
LTDBrandon (2 years ago)
+Nathan Ridenour We called UPS and asked them why one box came back all damaged and the other one to a wrong address and then told me that we had to call UPS international or something like that so we did. After over an hour of waiting and a 70min call with the Manager of UPS international they told me that the UPS in California sent one box with the wrong name and address and that the other box had a return label on it when it left texas for mexico. We told them if they could sent the box back to the correct address and file a claim and get our money back for all the damaged stuff. They said that we had to pay again to get the box back home to file a claim because we needed both boxes and after that we had to pay to get them to the right address. Then we asked why do I have to pay if this was an error in your part not ours and they responded with nothings free in life. And I was like fug you and your useless shitty af company what a sad way of taking care of your customers I won't wonder why if one day FedEx or Ontrack takes over and does the simple job you fail at accomplishing at a lower price. 
Nathan Ridenour (2 years ago)
UPS returns your product that gets damaged and pays the amount of the damage to ensure that you get your product that you paid for, even though it may not be the day of which you were expecting it, you dont lose money because you still get exactly what you paid for, if your package comes in late and looks damaged then file a claim, UPS will take care of it, Idk where you are getting the idea that UPS doesn't take care of their customers
Wendy Bergeron (3 years ago)
it seems 1 out of every 5 items I ship using UPS or FedX  winds up being damaged. If you don't know the in's and out's of insuring your shipment. YOU WILL BE SCREWED. I've had it; I am officially PISSED OFF and it takes a lot to get me there. I will only use the US Postal Service for shipment from now on; even though they are more expensive at least it will not be tore-up when it gets there. UPS & FedX  you might as well merge because you both suck; I will never use you again ever, ever, ever...............

Aaron Peavler/Geomodelrailroader Railroad Photography (4 years ago)
any place that has a rail spur to handle trailers but all the eastbound mail trailers head to CACH. KC is where all the Midwest trailers go then they are sent on BNSF to CACH.
TheGoodChap (4 years ago)
It's the largest UPS facility but it does the easiest work you can do. Bagging smalls isn't as impressive to me as working in a ground hub with over 1000 outbound bays. Worldport is the largest facility, but CACH is by far the largest ground hub.
TheGoodChap (4 years ago)
Does it really all go by train to CACH? I work at a hub near KC and we send a number of trailers by rail including loads destined for the south east US. It seems like CACH would be a bit out of the way. Do they just do that because they have more CDL drivers and not enough rail access at the destination?

Aaron Peavler/Geomodelrailroader Railroad Photography (4 years ago)
true UPS covers all modes if the package is going to any place in the US that is two states away it goes by Truck. if it is 12 states away it goes by Rail to CACH if it is out of range of Truck or Rail it is sent by Air to WORLD PORT if it is overseas by SHIP from NORTH BAY or New York and sent to China or London.

i find it amazing how ups is able to keep up with the massive amount of packages, and im amazed how there able to gaurantee there shipping dates
MrPhil0267 (5 years ago)
All UPS facilities are strategically located near airports OR railroad yards/hubs. MANY UPS trailers are transported by rail to distant cities. This is especially true for ground packages, 2nd day air packages and also 3 day select. Even some next day air packages go to destination cities by truck if the city is close enough. Some Next Day Air packages from Denver to Cheyenne or Albuquerque to Denver would go by truck.
