    I was inside a UPS terminal one time and I observed a long set of 
rollers running down center of building, about 3  feet off of floor. There 
were back-in bays on each side of this roller assembly.The smaller trucks 
would back in and  take on packages from the roller. A tractor-trailer truck 
backed in to bay at end of roller assembly and they started unloading boxes 
onto roller, they were pitching them out of the trailer and landing them 
onto roller. Saw a few hit roller and fall to ground. Was real 
dis-heartening to say the least.
                                    CUL, Byron.
