    How long does UPS have to try to collect COD shortages form a driver?
  2. It usually doesn't take them long to figure it out.

    Never, since we do not collect cash.

    How does one have a COD shortage? The DIAD always goes loony when I try and put a COD or brokerage fee in.

    Lost checks happen. Or collect a check for wrong amount. Or collect a bad personal check when it was a cashier check/money order only COD.

    Did you go back to the consignee to try to get a check for the difference?

    The COD discrepancies I have had have primarily been where I have read the numbers quickly and inverted them. I have always gone back to the consignee to have them write a check for the difference. They have always given me :censored2: about not being able to read. :)

    I have had 1 COD shortage in my career. I collected a check for exactly $10. under the amount owed. I went to the business the next day, he wrote me a check for $10, I tried to enter it into the board with the sheet that UPS gave me and it would not go in. That night, when I got to the center, I explained to the center manager and my driver supe what I did and showed them that the check did not show in my end of day.

    I wanted to make sure that my butt was covered for when someone said that there was still a discrepancy.

    Sure enough, 2 or 3 weeks later, the boss called me into the office to ask about it. I reminded him of the envelope and the fact that I could not scan it and all that. He called security or whomever and that was the last that I heard of it.

    The key with a discrepancy is once you do collect it, make sure that a manager sees that it is collected.

    Bet UPS takes $10 or $20 out of your paycheck until the COD is covered. Sure hope it was not a large amount.

    It wasn't its just a matter of principle. Management is acting like I tried to defraud them

    I wish we would completely do away with CODs, even though I seldom have any.

    The least the company could do is recognize that many of us wear bifocals and program the label software to print the amount in a halfway legible size.
