UPS says it underestimated holiday volume- hopes to deliver most delayed Christmas parcels on Thursday

From the UPS website:

ups_logoUPS understands the importance of your holiday shipments. All of our drivers are out making deliveries throughout the day and into the evening. The volume of air packages in our system exceeded the capacity of our network as demand was much greater than the forecast, resulting in some shipments being delayed. We expect a vast majority of these packages will be delivered the day after Christmas. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

    Thousands of packages sent through UPS didn’t make it in time for Christmas because the company wasn’t prepared to handle the volume of packages sent. – And now the US Postal Service awarded a contract to UPS to process our Non Machinable Packages for a trial test to see if they can do it better than USPS. I think they should fire all involved with this stupid idea from the top Union reps all the way to the Postmaster General.

      Union reps are not asked for operational input by management. Management has the exclusive right to MIS-manage to their hearts’ content.

    and the USPS is going to get the blame, because UPS will dump those parcels to USPS and scanned delivered, so UPS wash their dirty full of money hands, and BLAME it to USPS.

    UPS is a lot better than the U.S. Postal service. I mailed 5 Xmas cards on 11 dec 2013, as of today, 27 dec. they have not made it to Minnesota!
