Reputation, and being professional is two of the biggest things for UPS. When a customer sees that big acorn, they know they can trust us, and that is something very important to UPS, and they depend on us, the drivers, to be the front line people to uphold this duty to the company.

I wonder if that used to be the case with, say, Swift, some years ago as well...?  :|

It's not the acorn that makes the customers cringe, it's that Overnite diamond on the fairings of a lot of the Freight tractors. :wink:

I agree, sometimes I think a lot of these companies are just hiring people just to get more freight moved.  I can't help it, but there needs to be a higher demand for responsible drivers.

Never, Swift has always been considered a training company, a place to go to get trained. I first started to notice them back about 1980, not a lot of respect for them then, and things haven't changed since. Always the low of the lowest paid drivers, so most never stay longer than about 2 or 3 years, although this is a generalization.

Stumbled onto some videos of s Swift driver filming his trainer in various situations on You Tube.  Can't remember the URL's but a You Tube internal search for Swift should bring them up.  Comments might be worth a giggle if nothing else.
