    Delivered my first new barcode today (that I've noticed). You express guys get them yet? I'm going to have to try scanning one of the express ones next time I'm bsing with the FXE guy in my area.

    34 digits, geeeeeeeeeeeze.
    It's bad enough that I can't even tell what the tracking # is on a ground pkg. What the heck are the numbers inside the parenthesis for?

    Cosmos system is being retired this summer. New system will handle that and the larger employee numbers. Hitting the 1 million mark soon with all of this churn.
    I'm sure the agents and dispatchers are looking forward to entering those 34 digit ab numbers.

    Haha : "(origination code)___shipper number___package number". But we are all switching to the 34 digit. It was supposed to roll out in January. Can't wait for the scuffed barcode that wont scan and trying to type in and decipher 34 digits!

    if i see a scuffed barcode, i'm going to put it aside for QA to re-print it; I don't get paid by the hour to be fumbling with manually entering those numbers....
