    But seriously, though, let's get some going so I don't catch :censored2: for making a pointless thread.

    #1 - Follow proper loading procedures until the flow of the belt prohibits it.
    #2 - Once the flow becomes a concern simply get the package close.

    Yeah, we do that every day on the preload in one way or another. Definite necessity, I'm glad you got that out there as #1. Good job, Techie. :thumbsup:

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    1. Show up on time ready to work.

    2. Select package, read PAL, load accordingly. Repeat 800-1400 times.

    3. Go home.

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    Because the box fairy does our send agains, pulls our overweights off the
    bottom belt, climbs slides and walks the belt to break jams, tapes my damages and does my add/cuts...while my PT sup follows us in the trucks babbling about the safety tip of the day and asking us to recite dok and donate to the UW? Ahh...the BOG.

    1) Feel like you're being given more work than everyone else and slow down so they'll send you help without ever realizing that there is no help and you're just hosing your driver.
    2) Leave your trash in the trucks. It's not like the driver has to work in there all day or anything.
    3) Put stuff wherever you see a spot for it. Who cares if it's where it's supposed to be because you don't have to deliver it, right?
    4) Put the driver's handtruck somewhere different everyday, because you need to keep us on our toes.
    5) NDA doesn't have to go on the shelf where it's supposed to. Bury it on the floor under bulk. Your driver will appreciate it.
    6) Get annoyed about overweights and big packages just dropping them on the floor under the shelves. Who cares if the label is face down and not visible to the driver. It builds character for them.
    7) Throw every box in the truck regardless of condition. Tape is for pûssies.
    8) Leave a pile of random small packages on the back of the 8000 shelf where you set them down. Drivers love having to run the whole first half of their route again because a handful of packages from each shelf were missing.

    Please do not load packages completely up to the bulkhead. Please leave the driver about 3-4 feet inside the door so that we can step in the back and select packages, especially our air in the 1000 section. That's all I ask.

    You forgot....be sure to load all the big heavy packages on the shelves...and once the shelved are full...throw the small amazon boxes under the shelf...cuz there's no more room.

    And be sure to lip load all packages on top of the clothing smalls bags so they all slide off the shelf as soon as the driver leaves the building. Drivers enjoy picking stuff up off the floor...they need
    the exercise.

    Tired Driver Sisyphus had it easy.

    Put all of the long and skinny packages on the shelve behind the other packages. We enjoy the hunt.

    Make sure you stack that little heavy package on top so it will make itself known to the driver as he tries to pull a package from that top shelf.

    I was helping a new loader who was backed up this morning. He gets this smallish 90lb package down the bottom belt...and goes to put it on the 2000 shelf where it was PAL'd. Training is non- existant.

    All the griping about your pre-load...ever heard of driver sort and load? Sheesh I'm sure it's annoying if every package isn't EXACTLY where it should be...but it could be worse.
