    3 drivers in my building fired for being dishonest. 2 of them for "playing games" with NDAs. When will we learn they can watch us all day and that we can't mess around ?

    What's he is saying is that the drivers are sheeting the NDA as NI1 or CL1 when they are not even at the place of delivery than delivering the packages later in the day after the commit time all becasue they don't want to waste time running around in the morning delivering there NDA's, Once you sheet a NDA NI1 or CL1 you can sheet again and deliver it after the commit time and it won't be late.

    That is definitely not a smart thing to do.

    ...unless the business does indeed not open until after the commit time.

    Any driver doing this and thinking that this is not being monitored is fooling only himself.

    This may be OK in your district but it is not allowable in mine. The customer (shipper) pays for you to make the attempt at the location before 1030AM. It is up to them to know whether it will be deliverable at that time or not. What if the receiver came in early because they needed it? I have had NDA for businesses normally closed where they opened early just to receive a special delivery. I had a receiver waiting for a part for a lathe that was needed early so they could meet a deadline. We get paid by the hour to follow UPS directives, not to interpret our own. I always make the attempt at the location before 1030AM even when they may be closed because I get paid to do so, it satisfies the shipper, it gives the receiver additional time to get it, and because it covers my backside.

    OK, my bad--I did not read the post as well as I thought I had the first time. I went back and re-read it and you are exactly right. I was wrong in my response. Dave.

    So much for the blah, blah, blah of him reading his posts twice, before posting. Maybe a visit to the eye Dr would be the next best move.........................Check and Mate!:happy-very:
