Is it true that some stations have refused to implement DRA? If so why?
1/2 our station is non-DRA. Even have the mall and a couple downtown routes that are SRA due to multiple "vertical stops" in same buildings.
Consensus seems to be this amazing tool called DRA works well in an extremely narrow application.
If the corporate bigwigs are banking on this saving the company, they need to invest the resources needed to make it accurate in the 99.9 percentile that they call acceptable in all other performance parameters.
Anything less should be deemed management failure.
I am equally amazed that a multi-billion dollar company would push such an unproven system into service before working out the majority of the bugs.
It now takes a 50% increase of employees to handle a 15% increase in freight.
ROADS works pretty well in our workgroup. There's 4 problems I see with ROADS. Fix those and you shouldn't have any more griping.
Yes and No, a good workgroup(or loop) is amazing to see work together,But couriers COULD, and did every day.
In theory. Managers still manipulate. Engineers are still lost.Yes and No, a good workgroup(or loop) is amazing to see work together,
unfortunately they are rare.
Mostly loops and groups that just don't do the teamwork thing. You have the OT CRR who would take every stop off you and drive for 24hrs if they could get away with it. You've got the slacker, who rolls next day freight everyday even if it's light. You've got the Old timer who just drops stops because "it's just too much" but still gets in before anyone else...
DRA 'fixes" this by balancing(errors happen but can be fixed)
Wow, how did we ever manage before DRA?Not having dra must suck....on the Saturdays during peak we didnt have it and I was looking at like 80 stops like WTF WHERE DO I EVEN START and then spent an hour putting them all on some app called route4me....and then spent absurd amounts of time digging for at stops
The ability to operate sans DRA is the justification for being overpaid (by Corporate standards).Not having dra must suck....on the Saturdays during peak we didnt have it and I was looking at like 80 stops like WTF WHERE DO I EVEN START and then spent an hour putting them all on some app called route4me....and then spent absurd amounts of time digging for at stops
