    Everyone else seeing what we are here? Drivers already going out with 12,13,14 hour loads or worse. I know of one rural route driver that had to lose 2 hours of work just hoping to finish and another that wasn't sure he would get done in 14.

    I really have no hope for this peak. I see one monster failure system wide. This could be just our center I mean our dispatcher is just terrible and I know that's part of it. What are you all seeing at your center?

    Not seeing anything like that in my building. Misloads completely out of control. Picked up one today that was 125 lbs. It took two loaders to put it the wrong truck. Lots of complaints about dispatch sending three drivers to the same sub division just to even out the dispatch. One driver does the north side of the street, another driver does the south side. Center management team is very experienced with a lot of high seniority drivers.

    I've noticed that mgmt in our bldg suck and really has no plan for this peak. So for all you OP's managers and Division Mgrs out there, get a effing clue and jump off a cliff and drag the rest of your crews with you. We can do it without you.

    Our days are limited to 12 hours. after that I can go home. Management hours can go on forever. Or be replaced in a heartbeat.

    Legally 14 o kay. But company policy from my experience is 12 hours max. Talking package cars here. After 12 hours you are just spinning your wheels and will be out of hours by Friday

    it's hitting pretty hard in our center as well. We are down 6 drivers due to injuries and the Seasonal Drivers they have hired cant run more than 8-10 stops an hour . The Runner Gunners are getting BURIED (its OSSUM hearing them cry and whine in the AM) and I expect to be delivering Xmas packages in the middle of January to :censored2: off customers. There aint no way we are going to be able to deliver everything in December.

    I'm on my third Helper already, this Peak looks like a disaster in the making. Monday I had 169 stops, yesterday 188, and today I had 195. An eight hour day on my route is 130 stops and a hundred miles. I'm getting beat down physically too early in the week.

    ​Had multiple drivers over 13 today. I wish it was still bring it in under 12. I can handle 12. 14 is rough for multiple days. Although telling them u must be off by 4 on Friday is fun too.

    Actually last year was the first year I ever wondered if we would get it all delivered. Somehow we did but honestly we were a few hurt drivers or one snow storm away from it not getting done. So far this is year is shaping up to be much worse. Last year our dispatcher was just bad this year the new guy is bad beyond believe. Truly monkey throwing darts at a map bad.

    We have most of our routes in all week now and have casuals running split routes to level us off so most of the screen is yellow for us. I'm sure its the calm before the storm.

    Yellow red white hell it don't matter it's all made up BS anyway. I worked 11.5 hours on a day that was in the white yesterday. Tomorrow I could have 30 less stops and be in the red. It's all smoke and mirrors.
