I'm going to assume this isn't a problem that only my hub has. Every night, volume is forecasted for our shift - say 70k as an example. Our forecast is regularly off by 10-20% in either direction. We may end up with something in the high 50s or low 80s. There doesn't appear to be any rhyme or reason for it being off one way or the other. It's about right half the time, and not even in the ballpark the other half. This means we don't even really know what our staffing needs are, and it makes every sort a big guessing game. It's the 21st century. How can we not know how many packages are at our hub, or are coming to our hub, by start time? We should know a piece count within hundreds, at most. Instead, we are often off by a dozen 100% trailers. Shoot, even if we didn't have scanning technology, couldn't we at least know how many drivers are coming and the percentages of their loads? Even using that, with nothing being scanned, would give us a better forecast. I'm befuddled, and would appreciate some input.
