    Anybody else have an easy Monday schedule?

    My route has recently been altered on Monday to accommodate a 4/10 guy in my loop when he's off. I run his pickups now so instead of my normal 6:50 punch it's been moved to 10am

    Can't get any easier than sorting your truck and just running p2 until 3:30 when pups get heavy. No longer hate Monday's

    My Mondays suck. They collapse a route in my loop making my route heavier.

    Monday's are the only day of the week we can expect our freight on time. I actually don't mind waking up for work because at least I know we'll be getting on road on time.

    Cactus Just telling it like it is

    So in other words, Express freight is late 4 days out of 5 making an 80% chance of failure? Heads at the top need to roll.

    Our loop normally has 5 routes Tuesday through Friday. On Mondays it's 3 routes. 9.5 hours every time.

    My rte gets cut on Monday, drives the other three in my loop crazy because mine has more stops than the other three T-F. They also have PUP's to do, I don't, so that's why I'm T-F. But, I'd rather work Saturday than Monday.

    Honestly if you calculate it at our STA, ~80% is about right... for the past two years freight has been late(causing failures) about 70-80% of the time.(this is a guess, but I can't remember the last full week of on time anything)

    Their solution hire 30% more people so we can spread the p1 freight out... I can't figure out the math, 30% more people means 30% more vehicles(which we rent since we can't keep them running) 30% more insurance on drivers, oh yes and those 30% new hire drivers a few have went through training, and walked after 2 weeks..we even had a transfer come and then go back where they came from because of the craziness... nicely done guys nicely done...

    We rehired a guy last peak that we had fired, he's one of those work a month and then all of a sudden start calling out sick every other day types. Funny story he did the exact same thing after Christmas and he was once again let go
