    Today at the PCM was classic. center manager went off the rails on Orion, paid over this week is throw the roof, a couple of drivers pushing 60 hours tonight.

    We asked the center manager to help us by Turning Orion off, he can't. Sorry but your bosses told us to do it this way, work as directed.

    Cant wait for Xmas, hopefully my center manager doesn't stroke out.

    If they don't give us RDO for peak, don't bother even giving us DIADs. UPS will be asking for the most disasterous peak if they stick with Orion only. Regardless if the rumored "Dynamic Orion" comes by then, it doesn't change anything. With a peak load, you can only deliver in load order, period. It's hard enough reaching for the 1100 package in the AM.

    If they go for that idea we are doomed. UPS will crash and burn at peak if that is the plan.

    During peak they will tell you " do what you have to to get done". That's when it's pay back time, nope I'll follow Orion because you been bitching at me all year for it.

    Was it 2015 that we had a particularly bad peak? This year will make that peak look like March smoothness if we don't get RDO for the month.

    OMG I can't even imagine how bad peak will be this year. We constantly roll packages during peak as it is, but if we have to follow orion then we won't be cleaned up until March.

    Yes, it's very easy to do. The question is whether corporate allows it. They'd be out of their minds if they think they can stick with their guns with Orion.

    Plus, with stop density so high during peak, Orion routing would be largely pointless anyway.

    Orion routing is pointless all the time, not just during peak ;)

    If you're in a center where you got the Diad update to Orion only and maps and the center manager proceeda to turn it off, good luck to him/her. Their days are numbered.
