Just curious what everyone thinks about loading and unloading.
Loading and it isn't even close.
edit: I read it as what is "harder" not "better". Which is better? Neither. Depends completely on the load you are dealing with. Bottom line is it is easier to tear down than put it up.
At my hub if you learn the zips for each trailer in your area you qualify for sort pay. Unloading is an unskilled job.
Neither sorting is better.
On preload, I'd unload over loading a brown truck all day long. And, keep the labels up and the flow fine as wine.
Don't know---never did either one.
You were lucky. I mean that.
I would much rather load the dishwasher than unload it.
I always preferred unloading. Take box, put on conveyor, repeat process thousands of times
Loading is better. You actually have to think a little
Unloading you determine how fast or slow you go. Loading its all up to the flow. You can load 700 an hour and still possibly be backed up.
How fast or slow you go isn't determined by flow. That's like saying unloading fast or slow is determined by how many packages are in the truck you're unloading. It is entirely relative and up to the worker to do "their best" while maintaining some semblance of safety. If you are loading @ 250 in a truck that "requires" 450, you either fall for the manipulation and work faster, get help, or are moved to an easier area (despite what they would want you to think).
I think driving the Feeder is better than loading or unloading !! just sayin !!
I like my unloading half more than the ODC half.
I mean... unloading.
I like switching it up once in a while, but if I had to choose I would probably go with loading. I definitely like unloading package cars better than feeders though.
I long for my unload days.
