    I know this might be a basic question but today I had a bulk stop of 484 packages. After scanning and delivering all of them the Diad said I was missing 1.

    I’m 100% I scanned them all, sent it in as not found.

    If it’s a missed scan could I get in trouble?

    Damn-- the most packages I ever had for one stop in 30 years was like maybe 60. I remember because I had to flip the page and move the carbon paper.

    Could be a missed scan or left in building or misloaded.

    No. With that many packages, there’s no way of knowing if it was a missed scan.

    Ask the oms if it was scanned into your car, or maybe trailer if that many.

    Just send in a message about the missing package with the last 4 tracking #.

    If you missed it don't worry about it. It happens a lot and the very worst that can happen is you get a warning letter.

    484 pcs to one stop and no O tag? It could be alot of things. No Scans are big to do now since the pricing model change. The cost is almost similar to being late with air pkgs.

    Broke a nasty sweat. Felt every one of those packages. Well except that missing package.

    Oh man I’m just wondering if its a common mistake? I was in a rush to get the truck back so I might of missed one but I’m confident I scanned them all.

    This job has a lot of pressure that people just don’t know about.

    This is what you can do. you can track it on ups tracking website and go to details and if it says "loaded on delivery vehicle" then it was probably a missed scan. At our center our manager loves to scare rookies and runners by handing them warning letters for missing scans.

    Happens all the time for me. Post office I'm assuming?

    When I get back to the building I have the office manager track them for me and if it shows post office received them, I scan them delivered.

    Today I had 2 missing and had her track them when I got back and it showed that it still had destination scan at our building but not loaded onto my truck.

    So i sheet them Not Found and write them in the book to cover my ass.

    How many times do I have to tell everybody that a preload scan does not mean something is loaded on the truck. It helps if you have some knowledge of discrete logic to prove that a "loaded on truck" scan for a not found piece, while far less common, is still related to a preloader failing to load a package after scanning it, at a equally uncommon rate.

    Everyone in the union should treat this telematics "hack" as something to feed to the paper shredder.

    I see plenty of loaders scanning a pile of packages behind the truck because they got behind.

    "It's all scanned." ,says the preloader as I walk up to the piles of pkgs behind my truck after pcm.
    "That's all that matters.", I say, as I look at the disaster.

    Tell them to prove it was on your truck. 484 pkgs, and only one missed? You deserve a trophy. When it happens to me, I'll have it tracked. Half the time it was damaged on preload.
