    It was a beautiful thing.
    No PAL labels and NO misloads. The loads were nearly stop for stop. Only seniority drivers were allowed to work the sort as it was extra work. If they loaded a truck of a lesser seniority driver then that truck would have a load chart of how to load the truck.
    We had driver sort and load up until 3 years ago. Been a nightmare ever since.

    You just described my early days of working preload. Did the other drivers still bitch about everything in the morning.

    Long time member but a frequent lurker. I ignore Orion and run the route as it should be. I've heard this is coming to out center soon. Once it does I'm done. I will follow it stop for stop and drive around like an :censored2:.
    Whatever, I'll make a lot more money I guess

    Just seems like union busting technology. Nothing will replace area knowledge

    eats packages I have depth perception issues

    They don't care how inefficient it is compared to a skilled solution,as long as it effectively lowers the minimum skill required to do this job.

    Does management attempt to force drivers to follow the turn by turn directions and back into driveways?
    Do you know of any discipline being issued due to not hitting the Dash DIAD metric %?

    From what I have heard, a DIAD charger will be incorporated...similar to what we had with DIAD 3 or 4. No problem with that. My DIAD never died back then.

    Satellite center I just retired from has no Orion or PAS. They are also still running a driver sort every day for about 12 routes. It’s almost like the good ole days without paper records.

    Misthios I love my job. Don't you?

    Look I know it's your tenth stop of the day but you shouldn't have an issue getting to that envelope in the middle of your 6000 shelf right? Just climb over the bulk and hope that the loader cared enough to put it slightly close to where it should be or hell the right shelf for that matter. Now engage dramatic savings for the company. Let's go!!!!

    Just had a few installed today. It was weird getting back to the center and having a DIAD fully charged at 100% It would actually be useful if the DIAD screen wasn't tiny.

    Redtag Part on order, ok to drive

    We just got a bunch of the new DiAD VI chargers in today. It has a USB port on the side of it so you guys should be able to charge your personal phones as well
