    Default The New Nextel

    We are using the new Nextel phone for all our pick ups and deliveries now. Has this gone nation wide yet?

    It makes my job harder and longer to get one delivery done now. With the same work load.

    Hey Teamster we have had them for years. Though I am not a big fan of them here is what I have noticed about the adavntages they give to a company. Yes at first it is hard to enter all the information. But you will pick up the entering of information and you will become faster and faster with the browsre. It is for more detailed services that your company will be doing in the future. Such as we have too cube all of our shipments picked-up in the city thus they know how many trailers and road drivers they are going to need on any given day long before the city drivers are back at the terminal.They also carry a GPS device inside thus allowing the company to track your every move on the computer.No they can not use this at a hearing yet they still can track your every move. So good luck.

    They said the same thing about RDD. The only thing is, no one ever knew how to use it properly. I don't know how many times they accused me of being in New Jersey, when my route was in Nassau County Long Island.....30 some odd miles away. Or the times when I went to Manhattan and they told me I was showing up in the Hudson River, to which I replied....guess you better get a salvage crane out here and raise me off the riverbed..
