    No more driving 20 miles at 7PM to bail out the center slacker/slug:likeit:

    Not saying it will never happen, but thankfully those days are few and far between now

    An accurate DOL and a common sense dispatch will trump Orion everyday.

    Don't worry it will happen again. I thought the same thing after we started on Orion no more having to go help. Didn't last long, after a few months back to the same old thing. When your done go help someone doesn't matter if they are 2 miles away or 20.

    They try and stick by Orion as much as possible at first but slowly each day after they start to move away. Not even management can come up with plausible BS to justify it.

    Theyre big here on being 80+ percent still and they still send us far to help others

    as long as they know about it and can explain away the overages in miles in the morning meeting, they wont care. last week they had me run a 25 mile roundtrip just to get a misload from another driver. I came in 22 miles over orion and I didn't hear a word ..

    Rainman Its all good.

    Still happens. They just don't give us grief about the miles the next day.

    Rainman Its all good.

    And preload will manage to screw things up with misloads. Been there, done that.

    U didn't hear a word because you were probably still at 85% or above on compliance. I run over miles everyday(10-25 miles over) without helping others but always above 90% and they never say anything

    I thought the whole idea of Orion was cutting miles but over miles everyday but running above 90% compliance and not a word said besides your odometer is wrong!lol.

    You sure they weren't talking about our contract agreement?

    Seems to me from reading various post here that Orion is an Edsel. Yet I spoke with a sup and he said that it has already paid for itself despite being implemented in only 20% of the country. Someone is fibbing and I think I know who.

    Yeah it gives no allowance for on demand pickups. I had to drive about 25 miles for 2 ODPs one day last week and they freaked out.
