UPS driver Peggy Larson, of Port Orchard, Seattle, has just accomplished 30 years of accident-free driving. This is after covering over 800,000 miles in her career.
United Parcel Service, or UPS as it's known, traces its roots to two teenagers who began operating with one bicycle out of a basement office in Seattles Pioneer Square in 1907. The company, now based outside Atlanta, has become the worlds largest package-delivery company, moving 4.1 billion packages and documents worldwide last year.
Peggy said Im not an office person. I like it out here, said Larson as she guides her boxy brown 18-foot truck up a hill in Manchester, east of Port Orchard.
I love the chance to be outside, and to get to know my customers, she said. Its almost like I have my own small business, delivering packages.
On the road, she drives well behind the vehicle in front of her. And in close quarters, shell try to make eye contact with other drivers so she knows they see her.
Shes especially cautious in neighborhoods with small children, because a truck carrying a load of packages can be a kid magnet.
They want to see whats inside, she said. They know we work for Santa Claus.

Due to the increased popularity of online shopping, DPDs Dutch business
is expanding its delivery service to offer parcel delivery on Saturdays
The company says it is expanding from five to six days a week due to the demand
from internet businesses. The Saturday delivery is available for parcels going
to both households and business addresses.
DPD says it is shifting strategy to make the parcel recipient the main focus of
its logistics system
The company, part of La Postes GeoPost Group, said recent studies from
the likes of Delivery Match and Thuiswinkel.org have shown that 70% of online
shoppers feel it is important that retailers offer the delivery of parcels on
Saturdays or during evenings. Almost a third of Internet shoppers say such an
option is very important for online stores

bringing in extra temporary staff but have been severley hampered by the big
Complaints have come from many areas including Berkshire, Norfolk,
Warwickshire, Cheshire and Scotland. They are apparently holding tens of
millions of parcels at their sorting offices while they try to clear them.
Royal Mail confirmed problems in Scotland, but denied a more widespread
Christmas backlog. It said: The nations Christmas mailbag has been
delivered, the overwhelming majority of it by Christmas Eve. There was a
huge effort by our postmen and women despite the worst December weather in
We recruited 23,000 additional temporary staff. We have had some reports
of individual items of Christmas mail arriving after Christmas but we are
confident these are isolated examples. In that small number of places
where there has been some disruption, we have already taken measures to
deal with the issue.

Huge profits have been reported at Royal Mail with an increase in six months up
from £12m to £144m for the same period as last year.
Their UK parcel revenue has gone up by 13%, with the parcel sector representing
47% of total group revenue.
All of the group's main businesses were profitable said Royal Mail chief
executive Moya Greene.
"Royal Mail has experienced the negative impact of e-substitution, which
is driving the structural decline in the traditional letters market.
"Conversely, we are seeing the positive impact that online retailing is
having on our parcel volumes," she said..

Volunteer manager at Food & Friends, Don Pitz, says his job is easy
on only one day of the year. Around the region, he has to increase manpower for
the meal distribution charity to get 3,800 meals to the chronically ill.
With only four chefs on staff, he said volunteers are essential. Last week, the
charity got a boost from nearly 50 FedEx employees, who took time off from
business logistics to help package and drop off meals to those in need.
And when the worlds largest express air delivery company employees met up
with some of the recipients of these deliveries. they were stunned. It
was very eye-opening, said manager FedEx Keithon L. Roberts.

As many as half the households in Launceston in Cornwall are not getting daily
postal deliveries, local councillors claim.
Liberal Democrats Alex Folkes and Sasha Gillard-Loft claimed the problem was
because of short-staffing at the town's delivery office.
Mr Folkes said he knew local Royal Mail staff were "a very friendly and
hard-working bunch". He added: "But it's a big problem if there are
too few of them. It also seems that they are so short staffed that even doing a
bit of overtime can't solve the problem."
