    Default Time critical...an open-and-shut case

    Watch this vid, objectively.

    An open-and-shut case - YRC Worldwide Insight
    Twin City Hardware (TCH) is one of the largest commercial door and hardware distributors in the nation. When an important new contract with a large retailer stipulated on-site deliveries to coincide with installation crews, TCH turned to YRC.

    TC's are joke!!! Lots of them are late, the worst is the one's with the 1hr window that are in the nose, sometimes I'll get 3 for the same time or how about resi's form noon to 6 or worse 2-6 when you're supposed to be doing pickups, total CF!!!

    Be careful what you ask for cause our resi's are given to cartage and some TC's. Work is work regardless what it is I'm getting paid to do it . As far as the TC's arriving late its a management problem not getting the freight there in a timely matter. I would speak to the sales rep to back you up about the service issues.

    KA what we did was have guys on lay off work on saturdays to delivery appt residental deliveries cause weekends are easier to deliver since people are home. Kept our guys working and its easier to set up the run without disruptions from a dispatcher to cover a pick up he can't cover. Worked out fine for us.......just a idea to consider

    When the contract allowed for P&D on weekend at straight time the company jumped on it and had our guys doing home delivery's too. Worked out well then someone decided it was to efficient. Put a home delivery on a rail trailer so they could take the rail back empty and let their rail drivers work the dock. Now they don't do any on weekends. Everyone gets their dock time.
    Another reason for a management change !!

    Yep, time to send them packing. I remember when we had the gals in the office make appts. for the weekend drivers. We loaded them on a liftgate trailer to make the deliveries easier. Deliver one end of the valley to the other and actually get the freight off the trailer because the people were home. Huge mistake in my opinion not utilizing this language to the fullest. Remember that non union guys when you try and argue how a union ties a companies hands.

    Non union companies and the willing are the ones tying everybody up to be the bendable Bob's trinkets and playthings for management that everybody in this industry have become.

    100-200 bills a week go to cartage with the blessing from our local, if we're not willing to kill ourselves for every piece of freight there is then we don't deserve to have it, according to the sweetheart deal between local & moronagement.
