are we gonna be given some kind of holster to hold these things in? are they putting holders on the forklifts? I don't know exactly what these scanners are gonna be like but we had them at Yellow and they made moving freight across the dock extremely easy. no more writing it down as you go, the weights added as they are loaded, poison/food conflicts realized right off, and you know who loaded what and when and where. no more "is it on there? who the hell loads a trailer like that? was that last piece on the reverse loaded on another trailer?....." if they work like the ones we had at Yellow every move will be recorded completely.
Yes, they have belt holsters and I understand forklifts will have some kind of mount for them.
I drove a truck today that had one of the new mounts attached to the dash. The handheld wasn't installed in it, but already the shaking and banging of the dash has increased. Who's stupid idea was it to hang the damned things off of the front of the dash? I beleive they would have been better off to mount the thing to the top of the dash instead. These damned plastic mounts don't stand a chance of staying on the dash when they are mounted the way they are. Once again, they have shown me, they don't consult with any drivers at all. If they had, they would know how much the dashes in these junk Sterlings bounce around and throw everything you put on them, onto the floor. :nono:
