Are the P1000's parked and loaded loaded outside, since they are so big?
Not at my facility. They find a way to cram them in there. My facility was built in 1986 and it was obsolete and hoplessly overcrowded before they even broke ground on it. It was designed to park 124 P-600's, which were themselves already obsolete and being phased out in favor of P-800's and P-1000's. There are two belts and if you have two P-1000's backed up to stack tables and facing each other on the inside, neither one of them can get out. Even after losing routes to the Swan Island expansion we are running at 150% of design capacity and using jury-rigged MDU's and conveyer belts in order to force enough cars inside. This company has always had a fetish for trying to force 10 gallons of sh&t into a 5 gallon bucket, and then IE comes along and does a "study" and decides to add another gallon or two just to make things more interesting.
Along with a sprinkle of corn and peanuts for texture and color. Gotta love I.E. If I ever go postal thats the office I`m heading for.
You're concerned about P1's but yet we several P13 and P14's crammed in our building. Where there is a will there's a way.
We fit ours in the building.... we just cant shut the bay doors because the nose of them stick out of the building...lol
Which is the reasoning why they dont turn the building temp above 40 now
I have 2 offices to visit first,but like Kurt said"I don't have a gun"
sidenote: when we were being relooped,I overheard the IE guy say to the swing driver covering a route ,when he said this
is way too much work....buddy,wipe that smirk off your face or I'll have you doing 17 stops an hour
for the rest of your life.
I lost all respect for them right there.
We have 2 P12s that are the size of a school bus. Can't imagine a 13 or 14.
They big. They really big!!
I never had any to begin with.
Within 5 years, we went from having holes between trucks for bulk stops, loading trucks in the mechanics bay. Building was built in 1967. Worked fine for 39 years. It took less than 5. What has happened in management?
IE Going public is probably the root cause.
Blame FedEx, 97 strike, going public or whatever - most of the change we have seen in the last 20 years has more to do with strong competition than anything else.
What are the truck models? In my building, they're called 500/700/800/1000/Mall Truck (guessing 1200). The 500 and 700 are the newer autos, the 800's are the old high step manuals with no power steering. Are they just P5, P7 etc?
I am reminded of a famous quote from the Viet Nam War:
"We destroyed the village in order to save it."
I haven't a clue, but I was told my truck is a 1700? I'm not sure of that claim, I do know that they are rarely used and it's the only one around.
Sucker is HUGE.
17 would be a HUGE package car. One these days I'm gonna get out of my 13 though and go drive a 48 or a 53.
The damn thing is like 40+ feet long, maybe 11.5 high. Service 350-400 packages on a slow day, maybe 600 on a big day like Monday.I hate getting in it in the morning and walking to the drivers seat from the back. So many packages.Take a sip of my coffee, crank that diesel over and buckle my seatbelt.Gametime.
No offense, but it can't be that bad if you can walk through it first thing in the morning.
I think he was rubbing it in
Something that big he`d have the room to.
