Seriously, how hard would it be Atlanta?

  1. We have an R to alert us of any signature required packages we have in our DIAD's. We have a $ for COD's. How about a W for heavyweight packages, a Z for hazmats, & a V for high values?

    What you don't like shuffling through 230 boxes trying to find one only to realize three minutes later it's the irreg on the floor? Makes too much sense for them to do something like that...

  4. We don't even have that......:crying:
     
  5. The high value one is a pet peeve of mine. Why wouldn't our software automatically revert to a "signature required" status once a dollar threshold is met?!?! I hate getting that message to go back and get a signature after the fact when it is completely avoidable!

    Go back? We are told before we leave the building. Even where it is in the truck. I don't go back. EVER

    What I'd like to see is the COD amount already being in the system when you scan it.

  8. It is dumb that some of the high values used to sneak through the system as DRable. Now we have a clerk at our center who has the responsibility of finding all of these during the sort & tagging them with an updated signature required/high value sticker. They're actually PALed HV-... now at our center. Most now pop up in the DIAD as signature required, but some still don't. Guess I've never been messaged or had to go back & get a signature.

    It's such an archaic way to pay for something.

  10. I think the reason it's such a run around is the receivers' have no idea it's a COD or why. It's usually because they're bad at paying their bills on time & the shippers want their $ NOW! The runaround is ridic. & so are the DIAD procedures with these. I always seem to waste time getting in & out of repetitive screens. It'd definitely be a plus if they'd simplify it.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    What's heavyweights matter?

    Hazmats are pretty obvious and you should know of any high values before you leave the building...

    Yeah I've always thought that was stupid. You should just scan and it be filled in.

    Or putting driver follow ups in with your edd since they consider it a "piece". God forbid you forget to do your driver follow up.

    Not to mention everything that's over 70 lbs ships with 69 on their label anyway. Half the irregs would never show up in the delivery screen.

    I guess you step over the irreg all day before looking at the address, successful drivers develop the one look habit and check the irregs so they know what the address is. If you don't have the memory put a DR notice on it with address on it. How hard is that driver?

    Classic.
     
  18. It would really be nice if they designed the trucks to handle irregulars...and not wait till the end of the shift to jam them down the middle... They need to update their numbers... And practice what they preach.


    How safe is it to keep moving overweights?

    Put them where they belong and quit worrying about PPH


    It's a big F* joke

    Safety my left nut

    I haven't done a follow up in over 6 years. Only way I go back is if I hide it behind something and they didn't realize it and even than I don't knock unless it's there.

    Tired of dealing with the headache. They want me to DR everything so they can deal with it. Yes I know it's at drivers discretion.
