Now that unionization is in the works over at FedEx Express, the prevailing theory is that Fred Smith is going to shift the Express E2 and SOS products over to Ground. There is ample evidence available that this is the plan, and based on the "wonderful" service that Ground provides, this is an excellent opportunity to tell customers that UPS can do a much better job for them. There is lots of evidence to support this theory, especially the intense focus in Memphis on ensuring that the Ground business model is completely legal and bulletproof. Once this occurs, Fred is free to expand Ground and complete his "plan". More evidence is the fact that Express is leasing huge numbers of delivery vehicles at tremendous cost. Why replace a vehicle fleet that you're not going to need? FedEx has also purchased a large number of air-only Ground trailers and has installed lifts and ball-mat systems at many Ground facilities, specifically to handle air (former Express) business. I'm guessing this is information that both you and your customers will find useful. In the near future, they can expect their E2 and SOS to be late, damaged or both. Plus, they'll have the delightful experience of meeting our extremely professional Ground drivers, most of whom look like refugees from an outlaw motorcycle gang or recent prison parolees. It won't take long for shippers to figure-out that there is a big difference between the service they are getting now and what they'll receive in the future. Enjoy those big commission checks!!
