    After delivering my last stop at 2145 this evening I got to thinking, "I wonder if FedEx stays out this late when it's not peak." I came to the conclusion that I cannot remember seeing any of you guys out past maybe 1915hrs at the latest. Is that true and if so, please tell me how you guys do it.

    Most couriers start at around 0600. It's not possible to be out at 2145 due to hours issues.

    Last year at peak, I saw the post office guys out later than I ever have before.

    If we go over 10, it's a big deal. If we go over 12 it's double time and that's a really big deal.

    In my station going over 10 is no big deal. I do it most days. Over 12 will get you a warning letter.

    Last peak we were punching in about 0530. The only 2 DOT policies we HAD to follow were:
    1. Punch in to punch out can NOT exceed 14 hours, regardless of how long of a break you took.
    2. Punch out to punch in MUST be no less than 10 hours.
    I routinely punched out around 1900 with only a 30 minute break (13 hours on the clock).

    Be advised that the big issue is that you are off the road 14 hours after your punch in time. Some managers/seniors will not do anything as long as you are off the road before you hit 14 hours.

    Depends on the market. Most areas of the country run an AM and a PM shift. There are also mid shift positions and some 4X10's. west coast and extended areas usually runs single shifts.

    0600? Who are you delivering to at that time? That's insane!

    We don't have preloaders loading our trucks. Couriers load the trucks. We normally leave the building after 8:00.

    No misloads, no rewraps, no leakers, no damages, no problem

    Oh, we have misloads, but usually catch them when scanning our freight.

    If it doesn't get on the truck, it's not a misload :happy2:

    I'm saying they DO get on our trucks but we have to scan everything on our truck, and that is when we catch a misload and give it to the correct route.

    Understand with fedex express, there are very few routes that are strictly doing pickups or deliveries. There is always a mix so drivers have to RTB on time to ensure their outbound freight makes the plane. Also just there aren't any loaders with the morning sort, its the drivers who load the cans at night.
