I've always thought some kind of easily assembled slotted cardboard divider in a cross shape would be useful to go in the back of vans just so you could at least divide your pkts up into 4 separate sections.

No matter how carefully you try to put them in order in the back of the van they always end up sliding around and getting jumbled up to some extent.

Funny you mention the word box and a pop up add appears selling package boxes and cardboard. We are not alone!

This. I think we’ve all seen amazon drivers sorting their parcels on the street, they have those fabric bin/laundry basket type bags which can be collapsed down. Keeps everything in the right area.

I just use sacks and keep things separate that way. I tip the sack for the current streets out onto the back of the van and use trays if I need to separate them down even further. I also insist on writing a pkt list.. Works for me.

I just use a mail sack for each loop and tip the parcels in the passenger seat each loop and clear them before doing the letters
