I had a saver that was for a business on this country route i was covering on friday but the problem was that it was next to my last stop. It was no way i was going to get there by 1500 hrs so i messaged the center. They told me we cant have no lates. So i had to break trace at 225pm past by 50 stops to make this commit and then run the route in reverse. I was over by 40 miles that day. All i know is I better hear nothing come monday.

Seems legit to me. Why would you hear anything. I never do. If you do, you say “I had to beak for a saver.”

Why would you hear something? You broke trace to make Service. End of story. If you get called into the principal it will be because he/she was to lazy to look into why you broke off. I wouldn’t have finished the route in reverse. I would have went right back to where I left off.

You can break trace 15% of the time to make service according to their own guidelines, you made the commit time like you are supposed to.

I could've done that but i didnt feel like going pass stops again so i just did it in reverse up to where i broke trace at and finished the route

Back when I was a cover guy, I routinely did loops in reverse that added miles in order to get a saver off, never heard a thing about it.

Was it a resi? No commit on resi's.

This. Business savers are by 1500, residential is by 'end of day' which could be 21:30 at my building. LOL

Why would you hear something? Do the laws of physics not apply at UPS? One cannot break trace to make a commit without adding miles. What's with the calling in to explain either missing a commit, or adding miles or time? You make the commit every time....and add miles and time to your day and dollars to your bank account.

I used that "laws of physics" line many times to managements disgust, and my amusement.

That is standard procedure. I've racked up tens of thousands of miles breaking for NDA or savers.

I've only heard a word about miles once. When I was 70 ish over. I was instructed to deliver all my misloads. Had a lot. For several different towns. I explained the situation. Have never been told to do that again.

Did u cya & took a picture of the diad text?

That'll help your case if they forgot that they said to break trace to make the 1500 hour business commit time
