Last week’s poll asked for your suggestions on which comments to include for 2012 COTY voting. While people participated in the voting, not many people suggested other comments to include. If you guys could get on that and suggest some more, that would be stellar, thanks.
This week’s poll comes after reading this article about UPS’ largest sorting hub located in Louisville, KY which handles more than 400,000 packages an hour. While I hate UPS as a delivery service due to their regular inability to have packages actually arrive at my door, I thought the article was fantastic.
From the article:
In order to pull off such a feat, United Parcel Service (UPS) relies on Worldport in Louisville, Ky.: a 5.2 million-square-foot processing facility that’s capable of sorting up to 416,000 packages an hour. Within Worldport, 70 aircraft docks and 155 miles of conveyor belts await the arrival of packages from over 220 countries and territories.
In total, UPS owns 230 jets ranging in size from Boeing 757s to 747-400s, some of which have ferried everything from a whale shark to an iceberg chunk.
So, why Louisville? Simply put: good weather and short travel times. The Derby City has generally temperate weather and is about a two-hour flight from 75 percent of the US population, and a four-hour flight away from 95 percent of other folks in the nation — key factors to ensure consistent and speedy deliveries.
So while UPS has some impressive stats, I still prefer to use FedEx for most of my delivery needs. What about you? Do you use UPS, FedEx, or USPS? Which service has the fastest and most reliable service for you? Whatever you have to say about this one go ahead and vote on the sidebar and then comment on below as I’d love to hear your thoughts.
