Important update on RRECS – Engineer Study

In January, rural carriers will start doing all of the RRECS scans and all information will start to be recorded with the scanners for 12 months.  All routes will also be mapped in 2020. This will involve the new Zebra scanners and a base hour change to all routes for additional scans.

They still haven’t come to an agreement on the single box time standards, but continue to discuss.
January 2021 is a tentative start date for RRECS using information gathered in 2020 from the scanners. (pending agreement on single box time standards)

All carriers need to be aware of how the scanners will track your activities.  You MUST scan at the point of delivery to get credit for your work.  Make sure the scans are captured before walking or driving away from delivery point.
