So there's a loss of almost 600 minutes on the fixed credits (minus miles) and mail volume. If for instance this is a 50 mile route then the miles standards (for this route) will have to double to make up for the loss of time on the mail. Worse yet if this is a 30 mile route the miles standard (for this route) would have to more than triple to make up for the lost time. I don't see the miles time factor doubling or tripling. It should be higher but this doesn't look good.This is unscientific:

These are some of the partial results of a route over 48K. If I didn't make any mistakes in the calculator.

Box/NDCBU time factor = Loss of 773 minutes ( combined times because the route is only credited once to verify address, two bundle system)

Raw Letters= Gain of 11 minutes

DPS letters= Loss of 248 minutes ( no credit unless 2nd run or less than 400 , only credit in verifying address ? )

Flats = Loss of 47 minutes ( used highest standard, even lower for presort and walk sequence flats)

Parcels = Gain of 727 minutes ( A lot of guessing. Assumed 50% large parcels. Walking distance- I walk 3+ miles a day. I

assumed 2.5 for parcels. Assumed route receives credit for Prelim & conclude at vehicle, and Gather large parcel,for each dismount.)

Boxholders= Gained 52 minutes ( All flats)( if letters, .01 less than old standard)

Scans = Loss of 235 minutes ( no credit, built into parcel credit)

Letters/Flats collected= Loss of 25 minutes ( no standard)

Stamp stock= Loss of 20 minutes ( unless I sell some stamps, then actual time)

Office/Personal= Loss of 25 minutes ( only credits I see are complete trip report and move trays to storage)

No idea how to do the mail/parcel retreival.

Didn't include new strapping out.

Didn't include additional RRECS input scans.

No Drive Speed Matrix or other driving standards. ( will it make up for the losses?)

TL;DR- Loss of 583 Minutes
