    And, they're all contracted I've heard. They're not X employees?


    They are contracted but I can't remember the name of the company, been a long while since I was on the ramp. I do remember that those folks don't make a lot of money

    Ground trucks sure look "official FedEx" don't they?

    The small plane pilots are subs for the most part..........

    Contracted out to companies like Empire Air, Mountain Air, Merlin. Depends on the area served.

    FedEx owns the planes. The planes and the operation thereof are leased out.
