At least UPS is militant about canning drivers who dick around.

Do people actually think their packages are handled with TLC when it's being shipped around?  These people have to move a lot of items at the fastest method possible instead of treating their package like it's the only one in the world.

UPS et al know their drivers are doing this; they expect it and leave them little choice.  They schedule too many deliveries while refusing to hire enough seasonal help and the result are the shenanigans that sheltered internet housewives find so repugnant.

Then, when some drivers are inevitably caught doing what they have to do to avoid being late and getting fired the company throws them under the bus to appease the completely out of touch jackals who've never worked a real job a day in their lives.

If this video worries you, you wouldn't want to see the distribution centers during the peak times.

My TV came just fine the other day..... So.....  I knew about the inherent risks, so I make sure to only buy from places that are easy to make returns.

The driver is frantically searching through the Jenga pile of boxes in the back of the truck looking for all the deliveries assigned to that building.  He's letting them roll down the stairs so they'll be close to the handtruck.  It's ALL about being in a hurry and you probably knew that.

AbiNormal: I was expecting something more like this.


You joke, but I worked in a UPS distribution center for a summer, and they acted nearly exactly like this.
The conveyor moved at a breakneck pace, as did all the employees.  The only time it stopped, was if any fluid leaked onto the conveyor.  It had to be cleaned up and everybody got a short breather.  So, if there was any indication of breakable glass, they tried like hell to smash it in hopes of a short break.
This is why UPS is pronounced "oops".

Well, tossing them out the door in a heap isn't very good. You should turn and set them down in 1-2 foot tall stacks and move those. It would work just as well. This is why I pad the holy fark out of stuff that I send though.

Delivery people don't give a shiat at all. Back when I was in film classes, I ordered a roll of 16mm film. I lived in Phx, and it was summer. I happened to be leaving for the day, heard about 3 steps on the stairs outside of my apartment and a "think" at my door. I opened the door that I was standing next to to find my film marked "Fragile" and "Heat Sensitive". The delivery guy not only threw my package at the door, but in Phx in the middle of summer, he couldn't be bothered to knock on the door to see if it could be delivered? Of course, as is par for the course, calling people(Even Kodak) did no good. Luckily they were one of the delivery companies that disappeared around 2002.

If you pack something so poorly that these minor bumps will cause damage then you have failed at shipping.
 
2013-12-05 12:29:53 PM
A reasonably well packed item ought to able to withstand that level of 'abuse.' He wasn't throwing anything, merely dropping it. Anything short of a wine glass in a plastic bag should survive this driver.

Under the deadlines they have I assure you that is the most efficient method as all the drivers do it.  If there was a better way they would do it.  If I recall it was expected the driver to deliver a package every 5 seconds and the line people .5 to 1 second depending on job.

It's not that they don't care, it's that they can't.  If you answer the door and have to interact with everyone they run late and someone doesn't get their package or they miss the semi/plane linkup.  These guys get paid well, but they earn it by running their asses off all day long.  It may be an important package to you or me, but it's just one of a couple thousand they have to pickup/dropoff each day.

The point is that I was home, the stuff was marked as heat sensitive, and it was probably 100 degrees that day. We trust our shiat to the delivery companies for a reason, and when their drivers can't even be bothered to TRY, they can fark off. Like I said, this guy stepped up 2 or 3 steps and winged it at my farking door. It wold be like this dude marching into the lobby of the building he's in front of, and just dumping the packages in a pile in the middle of the floor, talking to nobody and leaving.

If they can't deliver my shiat TO ME, they can fark off.

Subby should be mocked for submitting that shait.  Anybody who is surprised or shocked by that video needs to get a job.  What an eye opener that would be.

Right, the frantic searching is going on INSIDE the big brown box thing.  I know visualizing things can be hard, but you can do it.

As for exiting the truck, he's got to pick those packages up either way.

Stuff is supposed to be packaged so it can handle treatment like this.

The videographer must not understand this and has a real hard-on against UPS, otherwise why did he start videoing  before anything happened.

Yeah that didn't look too bad to me. The driver is still an idiot though because no he has to handle it twice which will take more effort than it would had he just walked the few steps and stacked it on the dolly.

I have to ship my work various places and never us UPS. They break stuff and then attempt to say that it was the customer's fault by not packing it to their specifications. But this is typical of most shippers. UPS just tends to be one of the worst.

Worked at a UPS hub for about 8 months before I just stopped going because it was so boring.  As was said above, if you think this is bad, you REALLY don't want to see what happens at the hub when everything is being unloaded, sorted, and loaded again.

Unloading is as crazy as it gets.  I will say I got into pretty good shape while I did that job because it's literally 5 hours of "GO GO GO GO GO" with a short 30 min lunch somewhere in there.  Stuff gets thrown, kicked, etc. Whatever gets it up on the belt.  I cant speak for Fed Ex, but at UPS, they always told us to build a wall when loading.  Well, when unloading, can you guess what the fastest way to take that 10 ft wall of boxes down is?  Hopefully grandma's new vase wasn't one of the ones put up on top.

From there it goes to a giant maze of ramps and chutes to whatever area it's supposed to go from that hub.  The bigger packages tend to be safe here, but I've seen numerous envelopes get caught and shredded and actually jam up the entire line, causing the whole belt to shut down while some poor sap climbs up and removes the remnants of whatever contract, presentation, or official notice was in the envelope.

From there, most packages go out to another hub, which means they're getting loaded onto another semi-trailer. Remember the wall I told you about?  The accepted method of fitting little boxes into it is to build your wall about 3 feet from th eend of the trailer, and throw anything football sized or smaller over top of it.

And all that is just what's supposed to happen.  I've seen people throw shiat all the way from inside the trailer 20 feet up onto the sort belt with nary a touch of anything betwixt.  A guy I knew came in baked half the time, and would just stab boxes for no apparent reason. We had an extending belt that had a broken sensor, so it would just keep extending even if it was bumping into something, and we decided to see how far into the wall of boxes we could get it.  We got it in about 3 feet deep before we couldnt reach it anymore.

Basically, don't ship things. Ever. If you have to ship something, pack it in as much soft, cushy stuff as you can.

And don't ever, EVER, EVER write "Fragile" on something, unless you're really hoping it gets destroyed.

I really don't see an issue here. It's not like they were being thrown down a flight of stairs. If the package can't handle being gently dropped a short distance like that then it wasn't packaged properly.
