    Hah I laugh, I wonder how many of those won't be getting picked up by ground. Especially when you get a bunch right at 1600 for a 1700 close. I see FAILS coming a management yelling a contractors for failed service

    Wait until one of your guys finds out he's in an area that now gets 20-30 on calls a day, guess he will just have to speed more

    Plus I do believe our call center people will still screw it up and we will be doing more pick ups on the express side. Habib still can't understand English lol

    Is that from 2010? Or that just the URL? Doesn't seem to be catching on if this is 5 years old. Sounds like the test areas of "ship and get" lockers, no one uses them so it never goes system wide. There's not too much demand for same day Ground pickups. If people want it, they're better off getting the contractor's number, better service and they don't have to pay the extra pickup charge on top of the per piece pickup charge.

    Guess that means we'll be fixing Ground's pup mistakes now too. Personally, I get 2-3 misdels that Express needs to fix monthly.

    It's new. We had a meeting recently about it. A "heads up" meeting. Not sure when it will completely roll out.

    Are they offering additional compensation or just paying the regular stop charge? I'm guessing it'll take longer to roll out in ISP states, some guys still have 5 year deals that they don't have to change if they don't want to. This would be a change requiring renegotiation.

    No numbers mentioned. I would guess it will cost the customer, like the evening delivery option, so they will throw us a coupe extra shekels.

    Some kind of Customer Connection deal.

    Nothing pisses me off more than to get one of those sons of bitches for an area I just left.

    Express charges four bucks per package for on calls, if I remember correctly. Could be more.

    I played that game today, leave an area get a pickup, go do the pickup then get a call for the same place again. I can't get enough of driving back and forth to the same place all day

    Hate that, I have a stop like that also. I finally made them my last stop, so that I would be there till 1700 and clear out. They have a habit of calling in one minute before the cutoff time for the area before then. So many days of driving 15 min back across the city just for one package.

    Meh, I get paid by the hour. Call in as many times as you want.

    Cactus Just telling it like it is

    We'll see how skillfully Ground drivers will be blowing off some of these PITA on calls. And yes it will happen.
