    Was it a new or re-used box?

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Who cares? I deliver numerous packages that are either fed ex or post office boxes. As long as its got our label on it paid for and I'll del it. I don't care if a fed ex shipper uses our boxes. In all honestly most customers don't know the difference in our labels and would look at the box and think ups delivered it.

    That's because FedEx won't let customers use Express packaging to ship Ground.

    We recently lost the balance of our contract with Walmart and they may simply be using up the supplies that they have on hand.

    Just what are you going to do? There is not one member of our management team that is going to tell Wal-Mart, and their billions what box they are going to use.

    I don't know if you still have customers that still use waybills,
    but I still have quite a few.When shipping international pkgs,
    the documentation often will not fit in the ups pouch.Fedex
    pouches on the other hand,are much larger and easier to use.
    My old fedex buddy got relooped,and I never see him now.
    He used to keep me well stocked.

    I would stay away from Walmart. I would never be caught DEAD in that SCAB outfit.

    My siter-in-law told me that all the gals in her office would raid the UPS letter box for those way/bill envelopes that were about 8 inches by 10 inches. They would peal the protective cover off leaving the sticky part exposed so the could stick their hand in them and use them for lint removers.
