    Actually ex396 did not explain your point. Your's was one of customer satisfaction with union carriers. I debunked your misconception that customers have a low level of satisfaction with union service providers, end therefore avoid them. You'd be hard pressed to find many who avoid both UPS & USPS.

    Ex explained points of his own, not yours. You did state that you (now?) see the forrest. I assume I made my point.

    The BS you speak of is not my doing. It's stench comes forth every time you attempt to defend inept management. That burden falls squarely on the shoulders of you and the management of your carrier. The driver had nothing to do with this. Was he dispatched with your freight? No he was not. Keep reaching.

    Agreed, we both know what we are talking about... and surely we can agree it's not international customer relations.

    I do recall reading somewhere about significant Intl. union presence, and it was more prevelant than I knew. I just can't justify the time to look it up and research it. Can you?

    I'm sure you know the point I was making, and would likely agree. Unions can provide a high degree of customer satisfaction.

    1. It was you who brought up service satisfaction. I only ask you which companies represent this vast majority.

    2. It was you who said "more people and business use union shipping services than don't". Even put in bold letters so it would not be missed.



    I named a few fortune 500 companies that I happen to know for a fact utilize non union carriers to deliver a majority of their freight. Sure you may have some union companies moving some but not the, what is the word, vast majority.

    Fair enough... I thought it was you who expressed a dissatisfaction with union services, in general. If wrong, my bad. This was a LONG blood soaked thread, I could have missed who said what. I don't want to reread it. I take your word for it.

    I spoke to all shipping services which would have to include UPS and even USPS, thereby reaching the vast majority of AMERICAN people and businesses.

    Happy Friday to all! :cool::cool:

    Your partially right, which seems to be a pattern.

    I will always be a non and you will always have to be content with where I'm at. You can't change either one of those things.

    I think I comprehended and responded to that quite well.

    Customers' satisfaction is very closely tied to customers' expectations. I believe many traffic managers utilize union carriers for the same reasons people buy Harley-Davidson's or bought Chevrolets in the 80's...the expectations aren't very high and they feel "good" about supporting those companies.

    I am sure I have given those I do not like a very hard time one way or another. I have no problem with those that want to organize or not. That is our choice as Americans and I respect that. What I have no tolerance for is a person that claims to be something that they are not.

    My feeling towards 3pl's is one for our trade. I could care less if any 3pl makes one red cent. All I see is my customers taken from and my fellow truckers being driven into the poor house. I could give a rats ass less if you survive. It is all about my trade. I will be gone from the ranks soon but while I am here, none of your cohorts, constituents, or consortium members, are going to drive our wages and benefits down any further if I have a say in the matter.

    In which "trade" is that CDL truck driver who is employed by a 3PL involved ?

    That would be your trade. The road to poverty for any driver employed by you. Only a small amount of bait in the trap this time. Look what I caught?

    Voicing your opinion and speaking out is a great thing that many can not seem to do.
    But if your employer gets tired of your voice? Theirs the door sonny.........
    Let us know how that works out for ya.

    I understand your point. when it comes to retail and nostalgia I don't think you can make a case that UPS is gaining from lowered expectations, or benefiting from "sympathy" sales. They just do a good job.
