    So presumably you have worked around 17 days at 900 boxes a day. So you have loaded 15,300 boxes approximately, with two misloads you have have a misload rate of 1 box per 7650. Keep up the good work.

    In our building the "allowed" misload rate is 1 per 4000. of course this is always changing, when I started working in 07, it was at 1 per 2000, then it crept up to i per 4000 over a few years.

    If management is giving you guff about your numbers, ask what other peoples are, I am sure you are doing better than most people with your misload rate. dont try to please them, they will never be satisfied with what you do.

    I am thinking I might have misunderstood the original post. Are you saying you had two misloads in a day, or two misloads over the course of 2.5 weeks?

    whichever it may be, if it is over 2.5 weeks, your doing fine.

    If it was in 1 day then we all have bad days especially if you are new. dont get discouraged.

    Any misload frequency of less than 1/3000 is poor. Make sure you read the zipcode of every box, every time. Don't always count on slics, especially if they're not in the standard UPS font.

    I suppose there are many reasons why people misload. But I have always thought it helps to pay more attention to the boxes you are loading than the truck you are in.

    In our building our supes want us to call out the truck number as we are entering it, look at the back chart, then circle the pal label. While this sounds easy, it is obviously mind numbing and it is easy to do the actions while not paying attention. I usually dont look at the truck number chart in the back, instead I focus on the packages that are going into the truck. For me that usually helps me avoid misloads.

    Definitely, read EVERY zip...and if you're rushed and it's the end of the sort, AND you cannot find your sup, don't scan it, if there's any doubt. I wouldn't recommend doing this a lot; only under certain circumstances. We all made mistakes when we were new. I was hired as seasonal, but I busted my ass and they kept me. If you do the same, they will more than likely keep you.

    Chances are good that management is giving ALL their pre-loaders guff about their numbers-- its just the way UPS works :-)
