Give new employees proper time to get their trailer times up to par. No rushing or degrading remarks about their efforts, everyone tries their best at the beginning, they just need time to adjust. Also, better training with the proper techniques of package handling and inform new hires of trailer times required prior to their first day of work.
If I was in charge of whatever operations of this company, I would lean more towards giving people proper instructions and training along with a pat on the back for a job well done. Meaning gift cards and little things like that to boost morale. Also instead of firing someone on the spot for doing something wrong, inform them that they did something wrong and then correct them and give them a chance to do it correctly themselves the second time around. I'd say care more about the people that work for you than the packages that come through the buildings. Only because we're the ones that load and deliver the packages. If we don't load or deliver the packages then the company doesn't get paid. Instead of making it about the numbers make it about the people.
More full time job opportunities or incentives to give employees a reason to stick with the company.
Engage with, listen to, and motivate my hourly workers, part-time sups, and floor managers. Listen to upper management, latch on to a mentor!

I would change how the packages are labeled, stacked, and put together. Cutting down the extra time it takes to find everything and split it when it can come down the line already assigned to a specific location.
