    I have tried to explain the different service levels to the preload sups. Like the difference between a 1 and a 1P vs 2 and a 2AM. Complete waste of time. "We just look at the PAL label."

    Driver:

    You must not have read the news about how poor weather affects our business (link below) . Why else would they add a "weather key" and the (X) "Other" key to the diad? Also interesting is that there are no longer any damages discovered by drivers on the road. Just refused or NI1. Another one that is now entered by clerks when an air package on the reload is discovered after the air hut leaves... is "Tendered Late" by the customer. The next reason/disposition field we need to add to ECS (Exception Capture System) is LMFAO....... which is similar but not the same as what you may think.... (L)ying (M)y (F)ing (A)ss (O)ff . I wish I had 1 $1.00 for every Integrity sign that was taken down from UPS offices from the late 1970's on ;-)

    Problems with AM time here over the last few months. Shortened PCM now and we're told to just find our first stop. Our late air is almost always cause preload doesn't wrap. Which is often.

    Preload not being wrapped is another example of PT workers screwing every9up for everyone else

    One building I worked in we don’t even have enough trucks bc they are red tagged so supervisors have to take their personal vehicles with a air driver and deliver air lol bet my boss wishes he did something else with his life, not to mention he doesn’t get paid mileage or overtime lol

    We had several preloaders that use to drag their feet loading trucks to get more time everyday. When they started driving they griped the loudest and longest about preload not being down at start time.

    Can someone tell me is it ok that the supervisor I work with is sheeting a next day air stop that’s hard to make on time sheeting it as NI1 at 0930 and I didn’t deliver it till after 11?
     
  18. As long as he does it and you don't, it's not your problem.

    Late air isn't an option here. Our driver pulls at 20:45 every night, sharp and without exception. Won't wait a minute over. She'll up and leave us to make sure she gets to the airport on time-- and we ship medical supplies overnight for surgeries.
