The Average UPS Driver Salary

The United Parcel Service (UPS) is one of the biggest multinational companies for package deliveries. A job as UPS drivers falls under a wider career division of heavy trailer truck drivers. These drivers are always being watched, and they are mostly obsessed with utilizing data as a way of increasing productivity.

The UPS’s process management director, Jack Lewis, says that one minute for each driver per day annually earns the company over $14.5 million and a minute of idle for one driver in a day can cost $500,000 of fuel annually. UPS drivers carry with them a Delivery Information Acquisition Device (DIAD) that tracks all of their moves.

Ever wonder why a UPS man cannot hang around to listen to people’s life stories? He/she might be having more than 10 stops to make before the day ends and his work is being timed and watched.
