How UPS Is Using Big Data To Transform Package Deliveries | NetNet | CNBC
UPS is the BIGGEST bunch of Baffones on the plant... Example. I paid for 2nd day delivery... package Never came. In fact it's day 5. The ongoing tracking I have for this package goes like this... my item purchased from Amazon originates in NJ. Then it went to some town in Maine ( I live in Delaware... some 200 miles from the point of origin ) Then, its sent to a different town in Maine. From there it came back to NJ and was shipped off to Philadelphia. From there it went to Philadelphia DELAWARE... no such place as Philadelphia De. It is alleged to be in Harrington, DE. right now. But, to get there, it past my house by 4 miles. The tracking info claims it will be delivered today after a thousand mile journey across the Eastern Seaboard when I live 200 miles from the point of origin. UPS is run by Baffones.
