    My scan count at the end of the day does not match the total number of packages on my load chart. I think the issue is the mailbags that have Surepost Smalls as I only get credit for 1 bag but the bag may have 20 or more packages inside the mAilbag. Any thoughts?

    It only counts as one. It only counts as one for the driver when delivering also.

    Who cares? Are you getting paid by the packages or hour?

    When I was a loader my scan count never matched the load charts either. I could blame the load charts or just... well, you know what, I never really did scan most of the packages anyhow. Oh well.
  5. The load charts are just a forecast. My pieces are always way over.

    Why do you care?
    Numbers and metrics aren't your concern.

    They are when you are at a center that wants 95% scans and right up if they are continually lower than that.

    I agree who cares...the load chart will count every single package for the post office...the bags will count as one for total packages

  16. They say that at my center too but have not enforced it whatsoever. Some days it is just not possible.

    The scanners have really helped us drivers although they do hinder the loaders. I haven’t had a misload in 4/5 months.

    What the center wants is a production standard which does not exist in the contract.
    Sorry, the employees will work at a safe pace and by the methods.
    If the numbers are not what you want, too bad!
