    I watched it, and to me, it looked like a paid advertisement for both UPS and Fedex.

    Looked more like a rah, rah UPS is smart b/c they have an "end of the runway" logistics.

    YEA, I love how they reference the couriers and package handlers as low skill laborers. I would love to see how they would do after handed a crumpled up map and thrown on a route by which they had never ran before. I wonder if they would have lates? Better yet, I wonder if they could unload 53 trucks on a pm reload and launch the ctv on time. LOL yea. unskilled labor. MORE like under-paid, under appreciated, skilled labor.

    TOO bad we were not all rich enough to go to pilot school, they sure love their pilots.

    This looks like it is going to be a series, there is a link on the CNBC site:

    News Headlines

    And at the bottom there is a place for comments/questions. I sent them a question regarding
    how Fedex Express is able to save $$ by paying couriers 30%-60% less than its competitor..(and charging more ;) )
