Re: [CentralTexasGeocachers] Re: OT (sort of) Help -- In need of shipping advice
- A general expeditor is a level six processing and distribution clerk that make the dispatches, updates the case labels when they are changed and handle hazmat in the mail and does the placard changes for transportation equipments, (placards not so much a big thing now since MTEL has taken over). They know the operations and mail flow backward and forward within the facility and "expedite" transfers of mail from one operation to another to meet critical entry times, and verify postage for large incoming mailings. In my case I am the tour three outgoing expeditor, I make all of the dispatches for mail leaving and determine volume so transportation is available. It's not unusual for me to walk eleven miles a tour three shift looking for dispatchable mail,There are only two of these expeditor here, the incoming city and the outgoing general. If you are familiar with EXFC numbers, the expeditors make sure the mail for these destinations has cleared the building on last transportation of value so the delivery numbers are met. Ours EXFC is sitting at about 98.7% next day delivery. The P&DC I'm with is the number four in the nation for next day committed mail delivered last quarter. Cheyenne Wy is currently number one I believe for two quarters.I've been at the post office for twenty-seven years, longer than most supervisors doing the paperwork. And yes, I really do like my job. :DWhat do you do with the post office?the amish postman----- Original Message -----From: KeithSent: Friday, May 25, 2007 5:19 PMSubject: Re: [CentralTexasGeocachers] Re: OT (sort of) Help -- In need of shipping adviceummm Im curious..just what is an general expeditor?.. never heard of one of those before and I"ve worked for the USPS for a number of yeras..lol.. .Keith aka BigDogg4----- Original Message -----From: semperquestioSent: Friday, May 25, 2007 3:11 PMSubject: [CentralTexasGeocac hers] Re: OT (sort of) Help -- In need of shipping advice
My advice is to go talk to the PO. There has been a LOT of talk in
the forums about the new rates which no longer deal only in weight.
Package thickness, shape, size, all that comes into play now. You
can't just throw some coins into a bubble mailer and weigh it and call
it a day any more.
