    I'm curious what device UPS uses to scan packages and how it works compared to FedEx's Powerpad device and if they are any different.

    We use a diad, kind of like what 7-11 uses but with different features.

    The DIAD has a lot more information on them, from what I've seen, than the Powerpad.

    I dont get it. You ask what we use to scan pkgs, but yet you clearly knew the NAME AND VERSION NUMBER of the diad we're currently using lol.

    You could sure get a dogs attention with one of those when you wrapped it across his snoot.
