    They arent putting our monday routes back until next monday, im the acting wheel right now so this is my day off this week. I love training someone on these routes that have whole sections taken out for peak.

    I am an express i was more so wondering about that volume.

    Though i assume you were missing trailers because of that major back up weve all been hearing about

    My Monday route that I ran today was the heaviest in the station before they created an extra route to help me and my loop partner. I started with 167 but ended up at 133 total stops.

    Glad I had the help!

    We got out by 8 today. Volume more than doubled what was projected for the day. Would be nice if we could get a decent estimate.

    Slammed yesterday and I did stops Saturday. 135. 10 04s cause businesses closed at 5

    Station loaded truck sat morning. Sun morning and Monday morning Mainly Monday. Management holding back trucks to give HD chance to catch up which F'd us for Monday load. Manifest a joke, apparently when loading seperate days it doesn't combine on manifest showing what's on truck accurately. I couldn't walk down center isle till around 1:30 to sort the mess out.

    HD in our terminal has created nothing but a mess . If they were smart. They would assign HD to other belts and only have ground trucks seperate. As it is, we face HD and getting out is a joke as they have pallet after pallet behind their trucks damn near touching our bumper. It's a joke

    Can't get out before 9.00 or 9.30, not enough scanner batteries to go around, they are sending drivers with 150 stops out the door with a battery with 2 bars on it ha ha. Total worthless unloaders and package handlers, they can't put a package in the right pile, put your highest number package with your lowest, stink when they come to work, can't read or write, would rather use the walking dead, couldn't be any worse. Not enough help hired at any position, total fail this year, but they expect us to be perfect. And I love how if you get 200 stops in your pile you are expected to get them all on your truck no matter what size or shape.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Our projections are normally fairly close. The problems start when they advance work. We did 4 trailers more than we were supposed to yesterday. It was tough but I'm glad we did as it should even things out for the week.

    Poor guesstimates are the norm from FedEx engineers. That's why they get the big bucks. If that makes any sense.
