I just love the Charlie Brown music at the end. Sure -makes- this feel good piece. Also, coincidence? Charlie Brown, and what can Brown do for you? I'll let the good people decide. :)

i'm filing grievance on that. all helpers must be supervised and with driver at all times. not unsupervised and left alone on remote locations. yet another loophole UPS likes to jump thru and exploit to their advantages rather than paying to put more routes in. this needs to come to an end.

@zephaneyvega Package cars must be kept secured in accordance with TSA regulations. UPS vehicles are given access to airport runways with little to no security measures. As such, a UPS vehicle could become a means with which someone could gain access to a plane, therefore the vehicles must be kept secured at all times. I don't think they will use a bike to load/unload a cargo plane.

100-150 packages in a truck? no. Try 655 packages and 173 stops. That was last Friday's workload for me. Like to see you try that on a bike.

It takes a bike helper all day to deliver what a driver in a truck with a helper could do in about 45 minutes. Im a 23 yr driver, last year I had a bike helper on my route. I pulled a trailer out to the area with the helpers packages in it. At the end of the day I had to backtrack 15 miles in order to retrieve the trailer...it would have added less than 2 miles to deliver them myself. It looks cute and eco-friendly, but in reality it is a big waste of time and effort.

@carlpaulsen they bitch because UPS drivers must obide by DOT regulations. Bulk head doors being one of their concerns. Driver Helpers on bikes with utility trailers DOT has no control over that.

@zephaneyvega except it's not US mail. It's UPS. Private company. US Postal regulations don't apply.

Somehow I think a street legal handtruck with a little electric would be nearly as fast and a lot more practical. This is coming from a proud Worksman Trike Owner,

UPS bitches about keeping truck secure, (bulk head door and rear door) her packages look like an easy target.
