How long does UPS have to try to collect COD shortages form a driver?
It usually doesn't take them long to figure it out.
Never, since we do not collect cash.
How does one have a COD shortage? The DIAD always goes loony when I try and put a COD or brokerage fee in.
Lost checks happen. Or collect a check for wrong amount. Or collect a bad personal check when it was a cashier check/money order only COD.
OK-----what did you do and do you really think you can get away with it?
not sure what happened got cod back in Aug. they say I collected wrong amount. Found the answer in article 10
Did you go back to the consignee to try to get a check for the difference?
Not sure why I'm ignoring content from this member?
The COD discrepancies I have had have primarily been where I have read the numbers quickly and inverted them. I have always gone back to the consignee to have them write a check for the difference. They have always given me about not being able to read.
I have had 1 COD shortage in my career. I collected a check for exactly $10. under the amount owed. I went to the business the next day, he wrote me a check for $10, I tried to enter it into the board with the sheet that UPS gave me and it would not go in. That night, when I got to the center, I explained to the center manager and my driver supe what I did and showed them that the check did not show in my end of day.
I wanted to make sure that my butt was covered for when someone said that there was still a discrepancy.
Sure enough, 2 or 3 weeks later, the boss called me into the office to ask about it. I reminded him of the envelope and the fact that I could not scan it and all that. He called security or whomever and that was the last that I heard of it.
The key with a discrepancy is once you do collect it, make sure that a manager sees that it is collected.
Well the contract says the can't collect restitution if they don't notified me within 15 day of the being notified by the consignee, its been 36. Gonna file and hope it sticks.
Bet UPS takes $10 or $20 out of your paycheck until the COD is covered. Sure hope it was not a large amount.
It wasn't its just a matter of principle. Management is acting like I tried to defraud them
So tell us the whole story then....
Mysteriously I never deliver COD packages........Hmmm,NM-3 everybody!
I wish we would completely do away with CODs, even though I seldom have any.
The least the company could do is recognize that many of us wear bifocals and program the label software to print the amount in a halfway legible size.
Separate names with a comma.
