    Why does the ups driver always scan the barcodes? Isn't this outdated technology when there is a maxicode right on the package. Ive never seen a driver scan the maxi code when they are picking up my packages.

    Because it’s easier and faster to hit.

    Because they don’t need the maxi code info. The barcode is the tracking number and the address info will be in their edd

    Why don’t customers worry more about running their own over saturated business market that will fail on the next economic dip instead of which part of the label their UPS driver scans?

    Our DIADs aren't capable of scanning the package bullseye.

    Do you have a regular/daily pick up? Or do you hand the driver random packages during deliveries? If you have a regular pick up, the driver shouldn't be scanning packages at all.

    eats packages I have depth perception issues

    The bullseye is what most of the recent technology such as the smalls sort tilt tray use.

    But not the label applicator

    So if someone slides a bag in sideways. The tray will get it into the right bag but without a PAL

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

    Would be nice if they were. They are rarely screwed up like barcodes can get.
