    Ok this is a new can of worms opening up here in the Northeast. Today we received a message over the diad "Beginning tomorrow call tags will no longer be issued. All call tags will now be done by ODS, on call service, one time pickup. You will need to be sure your truck is stocked up with SDG forms" What is this? I found no mention of an upcoming PCM on UPSers.com. Anyone else hear of this? And what are we supposed to do? Go to a house, or business with blank forms and wait for them to be filled out? Will we be given extra time allowances? And what about that crap Pottery Barn Queen who decides to send back all 25 pieces, or the snowbirds moving from the North in October sending 20 boxes of clothes to Florida? And what about weight?(not that anyone ever gives the true correct weight anyway) DIM measurements? What, are we supposed to carry around a scale and tape measure now? Anyone else get this?

    Not here, RS and One Times are still in effect. Your OMS must be mistaken. An ASD or SDG form will not scan as a RS Label.

    That system would work out better anyways. The OMS people here constantly mess up calltags and then blame the drivers for their mistakes. I guess that's a learned habit picked up by being around management all day long.

    If it is changed to a ods pickup you will get a lot more time credit than a rs. Of course it will take more time. I used to drop the labels off and have the people fill them out and then go back to pick up the pieces.

    I posted about this a month ago. No more 1-time pickups here, everyhting is now handled as an on-call pickup. We still have call tags though.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    One time pickups have been discontinued and customers are being directed to the nearest UPS Store. We still have call tags and have not heard about them being discontinued.

    The One Pickup Initiative, which eliminates One Time Pickups (OTPU), will be deployed throughout the 1st quarter 2008 in a phased approach This deployment is being coordinated with Corporate CSC in order to manage CSC agent training and customer call volume. OTPU requests which are made via customer calls to the CSC will be converted to On Demand Pickups (ODS) on a statewide basis per the deployment schedule. Corporate CSC will route calls to specific CSC Call Centers based on Area Codes and will be following this state by state schedule.
