10 Traits of Fearless Leaders

Leadership-iStock_000009640368XSmallWho do you think of as a leader? What makes them a leader?  How do you differentiate good leaders from great ones?

We define leadership as the ability to motivate oneself and others to take positive action toward a goal.  Note that we start with motivating yourself.  If you are having trouble motivating yourself, chances are very good that you aren’t motivating much of anyone else either – at least not in a positive and engaging way!  Anytime that you tackle something challenging, something new, attempt to change yourself or your habits, it takes leadership to face the unknown, the difficult, the possibility that you will fail – and go forward anyway.  Leadership, by its definition, is
Creating a change for the better.  To do so takes boldness, courage, persistance, faith – fearlessness. Here are 10 traists of fearless leaders:

1)  They do not accept the answer of “No” or “It can’t be done” even if it is something that is a near impossibility. They are not afraid of rejection.

2)  They are trendsetters, not trend followers. They go against the grain to do something different, to better what is currently in place.

3)  They have a strong vision and can lead others. They can build a team of individuals to follow them.

4)  They will work tirelessly to achieve their goals. They will work harder than anyone else by doing whatever it takes to get the job at hand done.

5)  They win. They will not accept failure.

6)  They may get knocked down, but they don’t get knocked out. They dust themselves of frequently.

7)  They are always thinking one step ahead. They are continually thinking about the future.

8)  They study their opposition and find their weaknesses and go at them full throttle.

9)  They are stubborn. Nothing will get in their way to success.

10) They practice until perfect.  Nothing but perfection is acceptable.

Your First Choice in Last Mile Delivery!

home1

The last mile can make or break the retail experience for many consumers. Thus, it’s critical for merchants entering the e-commerce arena to select the optimal B-to-C delivery partner.

What factors point to a good carrier? First and foremost, the carrier must understand your customers. The need for such understanding extends to every market in which you do business because no two markets – or consumer groups – are precisely the same. Also, the carrier must offer competitive pricing, an excellent customer experience and convenient delivery options that respond to customer needs.

Selecting a Partner
When looking at a one-stop parcel service, it’s important to evaluate the company’s image and whether it possesses a specialized B-to-C network. Of course, its coverage in terms of regions is a key factor, too.

Convenience
The best delivery partner for purposes of customer convenience will offer alternate delivery options to assure successful and convenient deliveries. For example, a courier might deliver to a home, safe place, neighbor or office. Likewise, a courier may offer a parcel shop that’s located on the customer’s way to work, has extended operating hours or is co-located at a shopping facility.

Our United Delivery Service programs  have been designed and developed over many years to cater to a wide range of shipping needs. Should the occasion arise, our software and services are flexible enough to respond and adapt quickly to meet any customer’s needs.  Call Customer Service: 630-930-5201

Spring Clean the Office for Increased Productivity!

Screen Shot 2018-03-20 at 1.44.36 PM

It’s officially spring!

Whether you’re already soaking up the sun on a park bench or still digging your home out from recent winter weather, warmer temperatures are around the corner— it’s time to lighten things up in your workspace. Here’s how.

Clearing clutter is a common practice for businesses and individuals alike. After tax time, it’s great to pack up your receipts and projects from the past year and focus on what’s new. It’s also the best time to clean your office, get rid of the old equipment you don’t need and upgrade the new equipment that you do.

1. Physically Clean Your Office: Following cold and flu season, a clean office can reduce the risk of continually spreading germs throughout the office. Although sick employees should be encouraged to clean their work stations when returning to work, a thorough de-germing will help keep your workforce healthy and organized.

2. Give electronics some TLC: Your computer and other devices are your loyal servants and come in contact with all sorts of dirt every day. Take time to show them some love when you’re spring-cleaning. They’ll be more pleasant to use and will likely work better and live longer. Start with a can of compressed air and clean dust and crumbs from the keyboard, and then wipe down the keys, mouse, and housing with a damp cloth. A cotton swab dipped in alcohol or vinegar is great for getting into crevices. Do the same for you printer, phones, tablet, etc. For cleaning LCD screens, use a product designed especially for that use.

3. Clear The Memory: It’s important to clean the cloud periodically to maximize your memory usage. While spring cleaning the office, take the time to monitor what’s currently in the cloud and delete documents that are no longer relevant.

4. Clean Up Your Hard Drive: When hard drives get full, it can hamper the performance of your computer. If your company’s computers are older, make sure you regularly run scans to compress and optimize files on the hard drive. By doing so, you can enhance the computer’s performance.

5. Recycle Old Reports: If you’ve got a ton of old paper reports lying around, disassemble them and consider reusing them. Single-sided pages can be used to print non-essential documents, including drafts and notes. Everything else can be recycled, clearing up shelf space for more recent documents.

6. Organize: For the files that you’ve chosen to keep on the cloud, organize them in a method that is easy for any employee to follow. Make sure that every one of your documents is in a logical folder and easily accessible.

7. Disinfect Your Phone: It is a well-known fact that phones can quickly become disgusting. One way to prevent this is to keep anti-bacterial microfiber cloths that are specifically made for phones with you. If you don’t have them, mix a 40/60 alcohol/water solution into a spray bottle, and spray a phone-safe cloth to wipe your phone free of germs.

Are You Thinking of Switching to a Regional Carrier?

Are you weighing the benefits of using a regional carrier to handle your small packages but are unsure about making the change?  Now more than ever regional carriers offer a choice that’s economical, reliable, flexible and personalized. Optimizing your package shipping can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be when you trust a regional provider. Did you know accessorial fees often make up 1/3 of all costs of the national carriers?Boxes_Stacked_Isolated

By transitioning a percentage of volume to regional carriers you may be able to eliminate fees common to other guys such as Saturday delivery, additional handling service, residential delivery fees, delivery area surcharges, and large package surcharges. UDS leverages their network of regional based partnerships to reduce shipping costs and lower accessorial charges through client collaboration.

When it comes to delivering a personalized service, regional carriers offer mare than customers may expect.  UDS understands their customers’ needs and are focused on providing quick response times that offer a seamless and integrated experience. Because regional shippers can offer lower rates, flexible services and fewer surcharges, they can help you remain competitive and cost-effective without the trade-off in quality of service.

The biggest challenge in shifting to regional carriers is making a flexible, cost-effective transition without removing the transparency or volume that would negatively affect your overall cost structure.  Carefully analyzing your current shipping profile will play a critical role in the transition and management of Regional Carriers as part of your overall strategy.

There are many factors that you currently have in place that could determine whether or not regional carriers are the right choice for you and your customers.  In addition to comparing regionals vs. nationals, be sure to compare regionals vs. regionals; there may be service or cost factors that could make a carrier more valuable to you.  The good news is that all the initial “dirty work” to make the determination could yield significant both short and long-term operational and financial benefits for your company.
