I was the manager of the Motorola Service Center near the interchange 
terminal in Mesquite, TX back in the mid 80's

Your description is accurate.  But there are other things UPS people do that 
are absolutely outstanding to check the integrity of packages.

I won't relay all the details, but I haven't  used them since then and won't 
unless they are the last resort.
