    You'll know when you come back from a vacation week. When they say your not allowed to take off again, then you know how they feel.

    Yeah, most cover loaders are blue vests or someone from the slide that wasn't good at it. They rarely have good extra loaders floating around the operation.

    Not up to you to train employees, that's managements job. They know everything, just ask them. I'm sure it will be fine. :runcirclsmiley2:

    Besides the obvious things like keeping everything for a stop together and as close as possible to where the driver would expect to find it, I'd suggest that you ask your drivers what their first few stops are, and in what order. On those days when you have to cram the aisle and back end full, you'll at least be able to load those first few stops so they come out in the right order. Especially if they're big stops, that will get the driver off to a good start, and they'll have a bit of room to move/rearrange after those stops are out.

    For instance, I know one of my drivers goes to MFR before RDR, so I just swap those two when I load them. Why dispatch can't figure that out, I don't know.

    Either get all the airs on the 1000 shelf, or leave them behind the truck. That’s the most important thing you need to do. Everything else is gravy. Nothing worse than having a crappy loader and you have to unload the entire truck in the pouring rain at 10:15 to try to find an air. It happened to me more than once.

    And DO NOT LOAD LEAKERS. Something smells very strong, or the box feels damp it doesn’t get loaded.

    If they were trained to load properly, they would know that if the package got to them to stop the progress of the package and yell LEAKER to get the line sup . (Treat as hazardous, don’t touch leave area, notify supervisor).

    To be honest it doesn't matter to me. I always end up rearranging stuff in the truck by twelve. Even if the load is nice stuff be moving all over the place when your driving.

    If you have a bunch of small NDAs, especially the little envelopes, put them in a tote box and leave them in the aisle behind the bulkhead. My new loader started doing that, especially with the ones that come down at the end from the air shuttle. It makes finding your first air stops so much easier.

    The drivers who say it's the preloader's job to load the truck well are the funniest. It's like, well duh it's their job to load it right, but seeing as how the supervisors don't usually care as long as it's all in the trucks by driver start time and how it's hard enough to get fresh "bodies" to load the trucks for more than a month and as a result UPS is stuck with what it gets, do they really expect any better? So go ahead and see how long a loader who cares is likely to care if they're not even appreciated by the people they help the most by loading well.
