New United Parcel Service software aims to cut delivery time and save fuel

Ultimately, the software could save UPS millions of gallons of gas each year and about $50 million in the United States in fuel costs, Perez said. It's one of many adjustments UPS has made to save time and fuel. Since 2004, the company has discouraged drivers from taking left-turns on their routes, saving millions of gallons of gas. And in the past year, UPS has been implementing keyless trucks, so drivers don't have to waste time searching their pockets for keys.

Is that the stuff that tells the UPS driver that the best time to deliver a package to my house - a package that's been on his truck since 5:45am - is 7:35pm??? 🙂
