    At ground we get fined. If it happens often enough we can be terminated.

    If you're late for a pup, the station gets hit with a late. Nothing happens if you're early.

    I speak for ground:

    Don't be late, simple as that. If you pick up early, don't freaking scan the damn thing till the window opens up.

    TerminAL doesn't give rats ass whether you are dispatched at 8 am or 9;30 am

    FDO's are usually anytime during the day or at least a 4 hour window, scheduled never change

    price is to high, don't be late :)

    On the express side we call this "falsification".

    And the reason it has a name at Express is because people at Express do it.;)

    So if you don't give it a name, it doesn't exist?

    Interesting....

    Hardly. We just aren't as sophisticated. It still goes under the catch-all "integrity issue".

    No. I had been beginning to believe in the superiority of Express couriers but now you've gone and ruined it for me.;)

    LMAO! Is that what FedEx calls it? What do they know about integrity?

    Well I can see where this would save on paperwork.

    Kudos to you!

    Not at my station. Early pups are acceptable because they have tightened the On Area time so much that it is the only way you can complete all your pups and get back to the station on time.

    Saturday pup routes are even worse. I requested off my Saturday pickup route for this reason and the fact that every new manager gets their start in cheatin' on the Purple Promise on Saturdays.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    At UPS pickup stops that are allowed to be picked up early are designated in the pickup log as AEPU----Authorized Early Pickup. All others are supposed to be picked up within a +/- 15 minute window of their pickup commit time.

    Wow 15 mins. of slosh time?
    At Eggspress, if a min. early or a min. late it's a problem.
