    Looks like we are phasing out the HD branding. No more uniforms with the HD logo and no more trucks will get the HD logos. They will all be branded Ground.

    I'm seeing it ALL eventually phasing into just one large indistinguishable FedEx. Already happening with the uniforms - no more orange, no more 'Express' - just a very generic 'FedEx' in all white lettering.

    That's where we're headed, folks. And as far as the customer is concerned - we're already there.

    Yep. Most of the new tractors are logoed "FedEx"" Express".One big,dysfunctional family full of criminals and deviants....and molesters (Smith).

    One more in a long line of failed marketing schemes.

    I don't think the customers or UPS care !

    All seemed like Fedex to me anyways, to Fred it was a way to work around the system. Still not sure why there is a difference between Ground and HD anyways, the Ground driver on my route delivers in the resi areas that HD goes to.

    Failed? HD is the fastest growing segment of fedex. They are dumping the logo because they no longer need to advertise the service.

    No offense, but that puppy dog looked like a child came up with the idea.

    Yeah, it's horrible. They aren't making anyone take the decals off the trucks. Expect to see them for at least another 10 years...

    I have a box full of Ground and Home Delivery crap. Key chains, flashlights, water bottles, hats, shirts, toys, etc. Maybe they'll be collector's items someday. :)

    collecting in the local landfill right alongside the Zapmail crap and other such classic Federal Express memorabilia.

    Oh I'm sure the puppy dog logo was a real driver when shippers decided on a carrier.

    Why don't you FedEx it over to HomeDelivery in NJ?
    He's been obsessed with that dog for years posting on many websites asking about the origin of that dog. He'll probably change the oil in your car and tell you everything that is wrong with it too.

    LoL, yeap, we got the news this AM to order new uniforms... i wouldn't mind some of those trinkets since this may be the last year for me.

    friggin' amazon taking their time hiring for drivers ~ they're still filling in spots for warehouse human-drones; probably worse than UPS / Fedex warehouse work

    i still say HD is way easier than Ground; having a sequenced map printed out in the AM gives me a visual of what my day would be & how far to my 1st stop so i can estimate my off-duty time.

    great that most of these contractors are getting P700s & i'm consistently getting done 1-2 hours from my planned estimate

    still have rarely any Call Tags or pickups to do as well, so straight-lining galore

    hopefully, they won't push those b2b pickups on our division; Ground can keep it

    time to fire up the BBQ & actually work on family's vehicles over the weekend; happy fathers day to fellow -Exers:bbq:

    You don't have to order new uniforms or re-brand trucks; the Home Delivery signage is still OK to use. Just that going forward, no more HD branded items will be available for ordering.

    yea, we order new uniforms annually around this time anyways... way before peak season starts ~ shrugs

    Well, I think the the HD thing started when they pushed the Saturday ground delivery. I would see two or three of them delivering when I was on my Sat air route. How do they get away with leaving the bulkhead door open all the time?
