    Here's a new one for ya. Told by dispatch today they are no longer able to dispatch packages to Flr 1,2,3,4 as it's harder to pick-up off the floor as compared to the shelf. All will be loaded to corresponding sections.(1000 sec,2000 sec and so on.) WOW! that's all I can say. I now see bulk on the shelf and single stops on the floor.

    Tell me about it. I think everyone rolled their eyes after hearing that. What's next? No sequence numbers on the PAL to save ink? Just get it in the right truck doesn't matter where.

    Sometime I wonder if somebody up the ladder spends all their time thinking about ways to screw up operations.

    It's incredibly obvious that some have NEVER seen the inside of a package car.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    We all know there is no way this sticks. Plus the preloaders put packages where ever they can fit them.

    Since i have epic preload skills and customize for my drivers. I will continue to put the stops where it was originally assigned to. Like you all say IDIOTS!

    Or at least start promoting more from within(if that's even possible).Back to the days where everyone had to have their butt in a seat for at least a year before going up the corporate ladder.

    Do not use FL1, FL2, RDC positions for 5 packages or less (PDS takes it out of daily plan if stop is scheduled for 5 or less packages). FL3 and FL4 can still be used.

    (Preloader should drop bulk stop/large packages to FL1/FL2 per his/her training and continue to snake the load)


    Less chance of driver injuring him/herself when bending over to get package off the floor..admit it, how many times have you just grabbed the shelf with one hand and with the other just grabbed a package off the floor.

    Less chance of preloader injuring him/herself when loading packages to floor position.

    It takes less time for a preloader to load the package on a shelf then it does to load on floor.

    It takes less time for a driver to select from the shelf then it does from a floor position.

    Ok everyone bring it on...the good-the bad-the ugly on why this will not work.

    Not on your life! That's what I meant by "if that's possible". Sorry, but they(upper management) really treat lower management a lot worse now than 20 years ago. Crap flows down hill and on-roads are one step above the valley.

    On paper it sounds good,and honestly it does, but in the real world it won't. Snake the load? Never happens, Bulk stops loaded on the floor? Never happens(unless PAL'd there). The turn over in the preload position is just too great(at least here) for this to work... period. Now maybe for a seasoned loader(10+ years) yes,but those people are hard to come by anymore. Myself, I hardly see the same person more than 3 weeks in a row.I for one am all for giving somethings a chance, but this just seems like a failure from the start.
