At yor, we used to have city runs, were you had only the city with 3 or 4 zip codes. Some smart engineer came in and changed it to running zip cades only. So instead of having one driver deliver frt in 3 or 4 zip codes, now we have 4 drivers delivering in 3 or 4 zip codes. One driver could be delivering on one street, and another driver delivering just across the street from him. Then the wonder why our operating ratio went for 89 to 1.09. Guess truck drivers arn't smart enough to figure this out. It takes a college degree.
UPS freight has always felt information they pay a engineer for is certainly better than advice they recieve for free.
Its like the emperor's new clothes story you heard as a child.
One screwed up our dock layout bad, lower supervision agreed at the time but all are afriad to say so or alter the new layout.
