Under the Days Cased Column you find that Bowley has cased route 34003 75 times. Pivot Coaching Module
Pivot Planning – Know the Mail Flow When planning for pivot routes consider the mail flow. Heavy volume days Light volume days Scheduled mailings Curtailment of Standard A volumes
1. You already have a plan to pivot ahead of time. 2. On the morning of the plan to pivot, you need to determine that days actual workload. Pivot Coaching Module Daily Execution
The DOIS Workload Status Report provides a snapshot of the daily workload on a route by route basis. From this report you can determine the opportunity for the capture of undertime available for each carrier. Pivot Coaching Module Daily Execution
Does the workload match your previously developed pivoting plans ? If yes, then execute your plan! Pivot Coaching Module Daily Execution
If not: you may have more undertime available than planned, OR you may have less undertime available than planned. Either way, you need to be able to adjust your plan. Pivot Coaching Module Daily Execution
