Are you saying that a controlled substance is allowed to be shipped? I have to take pain medication and if I let it run out, NO scrip can be mailed by my doctor or released from a drugstore without my signature and I.D.
It's not the shipper's responsibility, it's the supplier's.
It's just amazing how the media loves to attack UPS at the slightest provocation. My gut feeling is that the big money guys are going to drive down the stock price, then on the low they'll jump back in just in time to reap the anticipated increased dividend and ride the wave back up. We, the people, who invested in UPS for the long term years ago don't stand a chance against the greedy, instant gratification moguls. They control the market nowadays.
So glad you posted this "spot-on" analysis of our so-called "learned analysts" who only show ignorance and bias. The morning after Christmas I went on-line and the first headline I saw was 'UPS RUINS CHRISTMAS!, by "The Motley Fool". What ruined Christmas was the spoiled Americans who want to be catered to by expecting last-minute delivery. Sure would like to have seen them on a UPS truck bustin' their buns getting the job done, unlike them sitting in a warm, cozy office on their fat butts spouting such drivel! The sad part is, they get paid well for their bashing.
By the way, doesn't UPS get voted "one of the TOP 10 most well-run companies in the U.S"????.
Exactly...STUPID, STUPID MEDIA! They'll do and say anything to hype up a normal occurrence. It's the spoiled American public who thinks the world revolves around them and demand instant gratification. Just do your shopping on time folks and prepare for the Christmas rush. UPS delivered millions of packages on time but nobody seems to care about those statistics. AND, JUST THINK OF ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO saved money by waiting until the day after Christmas to do their shopping to get the bargains!!! Do you think they were worried????
Thanks for your excellent response. I did know that Fred hobnobs with the DC folks quite frequently and is quite the "Golden Boy". Perhaps that's why he gets away with the illegal maneuvers he manages to hide. I guess he even convinced the powers that be that FDX is an airline and that UPS isn't. Therefore, FDX falls under Airline jurisdiction and UPS is under railroad jurisdiction. Sure do see a plethora of FDX trucks on the road!!!, , . would drones qualify???? - LOL
Sure would like an answer from Dudesbag who always has objectivity in this postings. There are far too many UPS bashers posting negative and probably untrue comments on a great company. I would like an intelligent response from dudesbag as to why UPS stock languishes while FDX seems to leap forward. Part of it, I know, is that UPS is unionized but there has to be more to it than that. My daughter has been a driver for 18 years and gets nothing but kudos from her customers. Days are horrendously long now but the truck never goes back to the barn until it's empty. Would you please respond.
