    Our driver start time used to be 8:30, then 8:40, but the new time is 9:10. We were told this is a permanent Tues-Friday change. And even then we don’t leave the bldg until 9:30. Most of the drivers aren’t arriving at first air stop until well after 10. Massive late air and nobody is saying a word. But if back up more than 10 times you’re in the office the next morning.

    My impression is that upper management would love nothing more than to lose all our NDA business.

    So they aren't yelling at you for late air . Cool
    No 10 backs, so don't backup 10 times . Easy

    I had a heavy business route and was told not to back x amount of times. So I started walking off dock stops . My times went through the roof and I was pulled into the office. When asked what was causing me so much more time I told them I had to walk my dock stops off. Needless to say I was instructed to go back to doing things the way I was and never got talked to about backs again . Play the game

    I don't miss those games. It was a great for a laugh. I did heavy business too and first few stops were backs into docks. I backed about 60 times a day.

    Our start times are to the point where NDA heavy routes have late air every day. Routes that have any kind of a drive to get to their 1st stop are having late air every day too.

    The late air will be solved by the 22.4s.

    I would be curious to see that. In my building, we have air drivers that are available and not used. If they are used, it is only for stuff close to the building. Anything more than 15 minutes away, is too far for air drivers.

    Either your preload is that bad or they are trying to squeeze rhe orange and the peel out of the Drivers with the runner gunner method. Probably both
