Good info in the article. Thanks for posting. I'd never thought of over-labelling in a UPS facility.

The FEDEX driver that stole my FAL, simply cut the original labels off the box & taped them to an empty box. The empty went on & was delevered..... They caught him where the box changed sizes on the camera

Stolen packages at UPS would be reduced if UPS would stop hiring "cheap" labor that is on parole from prison.

Well, after the UPS driver "failed" to scan a rifle I sold on-line when he picked it up, then the UPS worker who was operating whatever truck/forklift/APC or who knows what drove OVER said rifle, I've used USPS since. While not perfect, I've had much better luck with them.

My UPS driver is super cool. High fives my kids, pats the dog on the head, and is very personable and kind. The FedEx guy is another good one. The mail lady says she wants to steal my cats. I guess I'm lucky with everyone that gets sent to my house. I'm sure there are always bad apples in any conglomerate though. This is all very helpful information. Thanks
