    How is the company maintaining its data? We (the employees) have provided immense data to the company that can be used for more than just industrial matters. The telematics im sure can be linked directly to individual bio metrics. Put to and to together, fill in the blanks and you can pretty much predict life expectancy down to a t. Scary stuff really. logistics implys more than just parcels. Is the company protecting its employee's? I know the data is company property but you have to wonder what they do with all this besides "sustainability".

    What data are you referring to? How often a package car is in reverse with the bulk head door open and no seatbelt on?

    More than you think! That magnet works great to trick the bulk head!

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

    Telematics can pin down my life expectancy?

    Every over 70 and irregular reduces your life span by 12 seconds. Use a calculator bruh

    Honestly, besides the wear and tear to soft tissue, this job adds life expectancy. Probably.

    I never understood the quote "put two and two together". I always thought it was just old man jibberish. I love posting on this site. :D

    Where did you get this data?

    So every time I bench or do squats I'm shortening my life?

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

    So every time someone lifts weights they reduce their lifespan?


    @BakerMayfield2018 that the booze and the cheese. I don't know how you're alive man.

    With methods, of course. Im almost certain the ergonomics is not taylored for us to handle packages but more so for boxes to stay in place on a moving vehicle.

    Do you lift weights like you lift packages? If so when your tired do you just drop parcels like dumbbells? Because that would be improper methods sir.

    I don’t drop them. I “slide” them. With no regard for gravity.
