Anyone else sick of UPS's over emphasis on scanning? I've noticed that supervisors seem to have discovered a new use for the tracking numbers and that is counting packages instead of tracking them. At my center sups dont really get mad when we miss a package and then say the customer wont be able to track it but they get mad and say that package wont show up on their "numbers". It seems that now that sups use the tracking numbers to have a "numbers" contest with other centers/hubs. I call the contess "greed". Its gotten so bad at my center lately. There is a magazine factory in town and sometimes they put out more than the drivers can pick up so we send a feeder out to pick them up. They want origin scans so bad here that they make us unload it and our builing isnt even equiped to unload trailers on our shift. Sometimes it'll have 12 skids of magazines on it. We have to get out portable rollers that are warped and dangerous to unload on. We have to set one end on the side edge of the belt and the other end in the trailer and up on jack stands that we have to borrow from our mechanic...lol. The crap falls all the time and one day someone WILL get hurt. And it'll all be because management wants more "numbers". They are so desperate for scans that lately they've had us send back packages to the hub that drivers have made an attemp on so we can get more origin scans. Thats stupid and risky cause a package could get missorted easily in the hub and not make it back on time. For example..Lets say someone sends me a package from NY. It'll go through several hubs then finally arrive at the Whites Creek Hub in Nashville, Tn then fed to our Center here. My center is 30 minutes from Nashville. If I'm not home the first day a driver attempts to deliver it then my package is getting scanned and sent back to Nasvhille and could be missorted! That would be pathetic if my package didn't make it here when I needed it because it was shipped back to Nashville and mistakingly sent to Oregon but was in our center first!! Greed...pure greed!
