UPS max out at over 28.00hr, and next contract they are seeking over 30.00.
And they just deliver parcel

For pickup and delivery? When I was doing hub parcel deliveries they had the cut off for deliveries at noon, and would have the part time routes do all the customer pick ups/Rpos/slbs. Not sure if it's still like that now

-PPC in Richmond will be shutting down at 1600 Dec 24
