Hi
I'm after some advice please. I'm picking up from PPI
Customer. He gives me 3 bags sealed. And one bag still opened. Should I have refused the bag that WASNT sealed. Also should any bags that are sealed, should they be stamped with what customer they are from. Any help would be helpful. I'm stressing.

Each PPI bag should have a 1st or 2nd PPI label attached with the customers reference number written on it. You should also have a printed sheet detailing what is in the bags and there should be a barcode. On the pda scan the customers collection barcode and select PPI, scan the barcode on the paperwork and click done or finish or submit (I forget what it says now) Place the paperwork in the unsealed bag and seal it( tie strap) with a PPI label attached. If there is no paperwork, attach a red cross label to each bag and select no paperwork or barcode on the pda ( it will automatically select RED CROSS for you. When you return to the office place the red cross bags in the red cross york container or ask the locker where they want them.

I don't think we provide cable ties anymore anyway. Ultimately as long as they have the paperwork it doesn't matter. We have to seg them anyway when we get back. As above though, if there's no paperwork make sure it's placed in revenue when you get back and red x it on the pda.

It says how many packets etc. there is on the paperwork, but not how many bags. Obviously if there are small packets they’re going to fit more in the bag. All you have to worry about is collecting the bags and making sure the paperwork is there. If the paperwork isn’t there, red x it as the other guys have said. And chill!!

Ohhhh ...... good question. Never thought of that. I would imagine it’s their specific ppi number, not a docket number as they would (or should) have loads of pre printed labels to put on bags. But that’s only a guess.

Hate to be a jobs worth, but PDA tells you to refuse mail if it isn’t accompanied with paperwork.

Another rule that no-one follows, including management (ours say collect anyway) unless they want to ‘do’ you.

The PDA also gives you a telephone number for you to show/give to the customer, when there is no paperwork, who is then supposed to make the call and they are given another number or reference to attach or include with the mail when the items they are posting have been recorded manually. You still have to red cross them as well. This means you are standing around while they phone up and get talked through how to proceed.

Don't ask me how I know this!!!! It takes ages and if you are on a busy collection it is easier to just red cross the mail after selecting no barcode

Can you elaborate please mate. How will the management "do" you?
Should PPI mail be collected without paperwork?
Will you get done for lifting mail without paperwork or get done for leaving mail because paperwork isn't there.
