    Was looking for my phone charger in the offices at the building when I stumbled upon two pkg that says "test pkg dummy". I was like wtf they do crap like this?? I picked up and shook it...I couldn't tell what's in it but it felt heavy to be in a express pkg box. Any thoughts?ImageUploadedByBrownCafe1437885335.755437.jpg

    It was meant for you to test package, dummy.

    You passed.

    Mr.Golden Active Member's funny cause I automatically knew what route it goes on when I looked at the address. Personally I think it's more to that.

    They did this when My Choice first came out, mainly corporate folks on our routes would use their homes as addresses and fool with the my choice options to see turn around, alt delivery options, and time frames as the package moved through the system.

    It's obviously asking you to test the package for shifting contents. Don't forget to lift with a smooth and steady motion.

    Keep the natural curve of your back, step or pivot--don't twist and use existing equipment or facilities to assist in the lift/lower.

    Wait. You claim to be a driver yet you were looking for your phone charger in the offices?

    Something smells fishy.

    Naw it can't be...why would the center send 2 pkgs out on different streets just for the driver to "test the pkgs for shifting contents"? I think they on to the driver about something else....

    Did that in feeders all the time. Assign you an empty trailer to take out, planted a "seed" to see if you checked before you left.

    Ironic in that if you do, meaning, a lot of times you had to climb up IN the trailer (not me) and walk it or pull over to ladder area, back up, pull up ladder, climb up and walk inside, climb out, put ladder back then pull to outbound and explain why you're late.

    Side note:
    Years ago, at an extended center, had to hook up set of empties to take back. Hooked and was checking for "seeds". In one was 4 SDA packages that were NOT "seeds". Of course took em in but wondered, because some of the MTs on the lot didn't move for days, how long they were in there.

    Well, once ORION "optimizes" that route those two streets would actually become 10 with 35 miles...... even though the two streets are only 5 miles from the center.

    You don't have the PCMs where they pick out a driver and have him use the methods to pick up a package? That's what those dummy packages are for, probably. You're paranoid.
