Used to be that if you were an hour or more over allowed on a somewhat regular basis, you could expect some questions from your oncar or center manager. In our district there is an effort to bring that margin down to .50 or a half hour over allowed as an alert to go to the driver and pressure for better numbers. My feeling is that it is an unrealistic goal in the real world especially when so many routes are not given fair allowances to begin with. I have never been one personally to lose much sleep over production, but this seems different, more like a general move toward no excuses for traffic, slow cod's, waiting for dock doors to be opened etc., and safety be damned along with customer service, with ever tightening expectations. Is this happening elsewhere, or is it just the same as it ever was where you are? I'm pretty sure it's not just here.
