Done by your lunch? I try to have 60+ by lunch, and 110+ by 4pm..Just curious...

2. ### upsgruntWell-Known Member

That is 60 in the first four hours and 50 in the second three hours? How many miles with those numbers? I have the same numbers, but 180 miles.

I think pieces fit into this equation too as well as miles. Good topic.

4. ### upsgruntWell-Known Member

Agreed. I average 200 total, daily.

5. ### outamywayNew Member

Usually 30 stops or so before I go home and eat. Around 50 miles a day.

6. ### speeddemonGuest

I average 115-120 stops a day. 120 miles. 200 packages. 10 pickups. These are averages, it fluctuates due to the inablilty of PAS to have a freakin clue.

7. ### Forty6and2I'm Broken

what time do you take lunch? i usually use 1 p.m. as a guage when I am counting stops. the best i have ever done was 80 stops done by 1 p.m. I try to get 60 at least.

I have 3 stops done by lunch, 2 after.

9. ### helenofcaliforniaWell-Known Member

Is that 7600 pieces before noon, with 4800 pieces after lunch? I always slow down after lunch too.

Lunch what's that??? I take my 10min break. Get paid to work through my lunch.

I'm on driver sort for approx 3 hours.

I like to have 30 stops done by 13:00. That's approx lunch time. My mornings are always slower cause I can't run air in with my trace & I do all my bulk.

I do about between 70-90 stops a day, about 200 pieces, 70ish miles.

I do about 60-70 miles a day city driving just meeting drivers with miss loads & left in buildings. And all that is charged off to my inside job.

120 miles is my average day, 110-130 stops, 210ish delivered, 120-200 pu. I take lunch at 1400ish sometimes as late as 1445. I usually have 90-105 stops off by lunch. Finish lunch, do 12 stop metro, deliver 15 stops on the way home, 1 more bulk pu (usually takes 30-45 minutes), return to bldg.

I used to take 1/2 my lunch on route and the other 1/2 at home after my last p/u. Now I take it all on route.

I average around 125-140 stops per day during the regular season. Around 50-60 commercial/signature stops and 15 heavy industrial pickups that blow out my p1000 with around 250-350 pieces. I like to be done with my deliveries or have less than 10 to go when I take lunch at 1:30pm. I can take lunch as late as 2pm and still get my full hour in before I start pick ups. I like to have around 35-40 off by 10:30am, 50 by 11am, 70-80 by 12pm and finished by 1:30pm. My pick-ups take a solid 2 1/2 - 3 hours to complete and kill my SPORH. I can average 20 SPORH and not scratch. I can also run 125 stops with my blown out pickups and still not plan to a 8 hour dispatch. My route is one of the closest to the center and I only average 48-52 miles per day. During peak I still have my blown out pickups but my stop count increases to 220-240 stops. I worked in the dark only once last year during peak and that was to help another driver. I get to use a driver helper 5-5 1/2 hours during that time and thank God for them.

You have 70-80 off by 12 then 140 by 1:30 you must be a super bad boy!!!!!

15. ### 3 done 3 to goIn control of my own destiny

Average 100 stops. 45-50 at 1300.(lunch) 125 miles,180 pieces,12 pups

16. ### CementupsBox Monkey

About 125 +/- stops per day and about 180 pieces. I pick up about 12 pieces a day from my 6 stops. Finish with about 120 miles per day as well.
I tend to eat lunch aroun 2pm EST and will generally have about 85-100 stops off at lunch time.

17. ### govols019You smell that?

I have done as many as 106 stops by lunch with 160 total for the day. Off the clock under 8. That was a rare day indeed where the stops fell off like water. 65 miles and somewhere around 270 pieces and 5 pickups. Most days the route is pushing between 350-450 pieces.

Not on my current route, but on my previous route, I used to have 60 industrial businesses done at 1230. Stop for 10 to 15 minutes to set up my resi's stop for stop, then run 45 resi's until 200 or 230, then start my 35 pickups and be done about 530. Back in the building and off the clock at around 9.5. The route would plan to 11 to 11 1/2 hours. That was before EDD.

After EDD, my start time was moved 30 minutes later and air was always late so no more delivering air with ground, started taking lunch, and those businesses were finished being delivered about 230. Pickups done about 530, resi's delivered after that. Back in the building about 800 to 830. The post-EDD time study took away 30 minutes.

That's on my best days...and not 140 at 1:30pm. The most I've done by 1:30pm is 135 and I had more than 80 done by 12pm that day. If I have 140 then I usually have a few to finish after lunch. Also, after 12pm, all I have left is my easy DR stops which I can basically blow through at over 30 per hour. They are all close together with very few miles and the houses are pretty close to the street on level land. Lots of guys hate my route in my center and in fact during the last pool bid 1 1/2 years ago, it went un-bid on (that's why I've got it now) but I like it.

Depends on the route, if its a bulk route I get about 40-50 done by lunch, i take lunch normally at 1pm. If its retail i'll get 75 done by lunch & still have another 75 to go afterwards & then pickups too.
