    I haven't seen any rollout schedules for STAR4 updates recently; just the NXG wearables.
    I do hope they do away with collect placards though. Consignees are constantly losing/moving them.

    Too bad they never do anything to improve the software in the express scanners.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Why should they invest money in to what will soon be a part-time opco?

    I haven't seen it yet.

    What do the nav and gps options mean?
    And what are interactive suggestions in eManifest?

    Glad to get rid of the collect placards, i get a lot of invalid collects for residential addresses.

    Actually, a Tech guy from Memphis, was at my station a few weeks ago, and he said they are working on a new one that should be out in two years.

    Cactus Just telling it like it is

    Why don't you tell us the exact date that this all part-time opco will be taking place, all the steps involved and most importantly, why we should believe you.

    If you're as knowledgeable as you say, why are you still driving a truck for a living? Shouldn't you be on the board of directors?

    They'll need all those tools to combat the failures inherent with the endless revolving door of drivers they have at Ground.
