Just voicing my concerns that we need to update the delivery rules or USPS needs to provide box trucks to deliver the huge or the longer than your vehicle, parcels. We have no LLV's or trucks at our office. Our office has a loading dock, and I understand unless your office has a loading dock you don't receive Amazon or FedEx parcels. This situation needs to be addressed. Management and Carriers want parcels delivered but isn't there a more reasonable solution? Why as a Rural Carrier does the burden and expense fall totally on me or face consequences?

  The additional mileage associated with the delivery of parcels on the first trip needs to be addressed. The mail boxes are no longer accommodating the regular parcels we deliver and a lot of the homes are not near the mail box. I'm saying on a 60 mile evaluated route, pre- Amazon and last mile delivery, averaged 30 to 40 parcels per day and maybe adding 2 to 5 more miles a day. Now with Amazon and last mile delivery the same route is averaging many times that, up to 100 or more parcels on some days and Rural Carriers are adding many more additional miles and footsteps per day. Should not all Rural Carriers be required to be compensated for all miles driven? We have the scanners and you know how many miles we are driving per day. Also scanner is fast becoming a more distracting device with all the additional alerts, messages, tasks involved. The burdens and stresses in this job are becoming overwhelming!

We as a craft need to keep up with these changes, to get compensated for all expenses. If we as a craft do not claim what is ours, management will surely find a way to spend it in a way that does not benefit the Rural Craft. Also the safety issue involving parcels blocking the windows obstructing the view of a carriers surroundings and other traffic is being ignored!
Please help us!

It is 1/2 now Rivkah. I have no advice on getting you paid now Terry. You might still want to consider writing the actual additional miles for parcels on your trip sheet though. You never now what might come of this issue down the road and if they possibly pay it retroactively to those who took the time to document it you might get something out of it. Don't hold you breath though!

Have you talked to your steward? I was a rural carrier a looong time ago. I thought it was 1/4 mile. That's something that should be negotiated in the next contract with the huge increase in parcels.

I'm saying my official route mileage is 72 miles in a rural area. Since the parcel numbers are way up i average 50 additional miles because of the half mile to each house. Why is this cost coming directly out of my pocket? I'm required to drive my personal car the additional mileage from the box to the house to complete deliver so why am I not required to get compensated for this required extra expense???

@Terry Are you deviating due to road construction? If so you are supposed to get paid for the extra mileage. Just write the amount of miles deviated on your trip sheet daily. It wouldn't hurt to explain why to your Supervisor or PM too.

I know rural carriers are required to go up to a 1/2 mile to deliver but why are carriers not required to get paid for all the extra miles driven? How can you require carriers to drive extra miles without reimbursing them for expenses?

Screw ups by others does not make it right. Make sure you take pics of any suspect parcels to have as evidence when you hurt yourself and have to file a workman's comp claim.

All team lift parcels should be left at office and the customer notified.

the distance of the longest dimension and girth is the distance around the thickest part.
