    Has anyone here, heard anything about OD switching over to FedEx as their primary shipper? I've gotten conflicting information from two stores. Will OD stop accepting UPS customer drop offs or will they only accept UPS packages if paying shipping exclusively thru OD?

    Good. No more copy paper deliveries!
    Perhaps Staples can switch too.

    No haven't heard that but we were told that DHL is going after all of our international account's and that we need to report any sight of DHL packages or any DHL people trying to convince customers to switch. The funny thing is that UPS Stores have signs that say DHL is their preferred international shipper. LOL.

    Yes we lost them starting September.
    Office Depot is probably going to be out of business in a few years. They've had issues for awhile

    Somehow, I think we will still get screwed with the paper.

    Agree. Schein boxes are always in good condition. Heavy but not falling apart. I can do without the dog food boxes. One piece of tape and every one is falling apart

    you don't want ups to lose Schein. It's like their 3rd biggest account. It would hurt ups.
