    Hi people.

    My first post here so be gentle :)

    At our center the 2 bulk trucks are hurting the numbers bad with their low stop count, is there any way of getting them off the SPORH report?

    I have tried to suggest that we use the "center DIAD" but that hurts the center volume numbers....

    I am not an manager, i am simply an LD that is seeing my drivers targets being pushed up because of this.

    Any help or ideas would be appriciated.

    You are someone who has concern over actual real life conditions affecting your center. This is something becoming more and more rare in todays UPS. Thank You!

    You`re fired.

    UPS Viking - tell your IE (INTO-EVERYTHING) planner to plan it correctly. He/she should not be dumping excess SPC on your center yours should actually be lowered. Spread the high SPC to another center in your division or spread it to a couple of other centers. DO NOT use the customer counter DIAD for anything else except CC or you will be EX_UPSER.....Good luck

    You can use the CC DIAD if you are a driver sup and you want to DR a package that would otherwise become LIB and deliver it on your way home.

    Any action you take to get off of one report will simply cause you to appear on a different one.

    The higher-ups who complain about "the numbers" can never be satisfied...because once you find a way to give them those numbers, they will just demand different numbers.

    There is no point in trying to make your superiors happy; their job security depends upon inventing things to complain about, and then making themselves look important by pretending to solve all the imaginary problems that they have made up.

    Just focus on making the best business decisions you can make, and providing the best service for your customers that you possibly can. "The numbers" will be what they will be, and life will go on.

    Thank you but our IE is not really good at numbers..... When planning our volume they just go back 5 weeks, and whatever volume there was back then is todays volume, we are always off by alot.....

    Thanks anyway..:smart:

    We dont use the CC for anything else than specified above, we do however have one diad lying in Dispacth that we use for PU on small islands that can be used by somebody only doing 10-20 stops, the problem is that if we use that for the bulk trucks the packages goes out of the volume......

    There is nothing you can do about it at your level...Even the DM can't or won't do anything about bulk cars bringing down the stops per hour..
