We just started edd a few weeks ago, not a good ideal. what is the great gods thinking? Misloads everyday,pkgs on wrong shelves, pkgs being paled to wrong trucks. For example guns for walmart being paled to the ghetto side of town, thats real smart, The trace in diad is a disaster, tells you to go 5 miles out of town then come back into town. Nothing is right I have to go to an average of 10 stops a day 2 or 3 times, then management says our center is terrible, we are losing money, because of performance etc.
Perhaps your just fighting it?
Some honest observations of it?
If your trace is screwed up? Get with management to fix it - yup that's right it will not get better until YOU
take some time to go over it with your team and get it rewritten. Obviously be prepared that the way you ran the route before may not be how it will be run in the future.
The load will eventually be loaded much better then anything ever done pre-pal by anyone but the BEST
preloaders. Come on now...complaining about packages on the wrong shelfs is being a bit silly considering how loads have always been in the past. At least now with EDD you have an idea whats supposed to be in the truck.
Misloads are going to keep happening until they start forcing the preloaders to read both the pal and address label to confirm they are the same as well as knowing what truck number they are putting the package into. We have some preloaders who misload Very very few - then we have some that do three to four daily. Is that a system problem or worker?
As far as Walmart being mispal'd? Other then being an obvious mistake to the customer how does it make YOU any unsafer if you are following proper procedures for securing your vehicle in the "ghetto"?
I fail to see how your going to 10 stops a day 2 or 3 times throughout the day unless they are all mispal'd. Edd will tell you what you have and how many for those stops. Even if they are mispal'd those usually happen that way every time and it would not be long before I figured out to go through EDD and look to see if there are a few more with a wrong pal.
Bottom line is...EDD works and works as well as can be expected. If you take the time to work to have your's fixed it's a wonderful thing - if not? Well fight the system and live with it. The choice is yours.....it's here to stay.
