    This would explain the iPods for sale for $15 at the Memphis swap meets, and Wii consoles for $20 at the makeshift stand out on Democrat Rd. 'We vigorously deny we have a theft problem at FedEx". They're in even bigger trouble since they stole from the US Mail, which is how this story saw the light of day. If it had been regular Express packages, it would have been covered-up for the sake of PR.

    Yeah like your crew doesn't have any skeletons in the closet. I suppose your boys are busy this time of year leaving computers, alcohol shipments and I-phones etc. at resi's all without signatures.

    My guess is that theft is a much bigger problem at Ground than Express.

    yea, i've seen this happen, but with the hired temp drivers, not the regular ones...

    i did see a few regular drivers DR-ing flatscreens without sig in plain view from the street; not a good decision eventhough walmart/amazon are too cheap to add a signature service on them:whiteflag:

    A guess based upon a preconceived notion that Express is oh so superior to Ground. A notion that seems more and more fallacious.

    This must be where the $50 gift card (in a greeting card) that I sent to my niece for her new baby disappeared to. Losers!

    It's silly to think one opco is more prone to thievery then another. Some steal for the profit, some for the thrill. I have no doubt some at FedEx are stealing for revenge against the company for the way they have been treated.

    Sure. Keep believing it and maybe the Ground Fairy will make it come true.

    That doesn't even make any sense.

    Sure it does. To believe that Ground employees are anywhere close to the average Express employee is a fairy tale.

    The gap is narrowing.

    to ignore the assinine incidents piling up in the wake of the average Express courier is delusional.

    This is the correct answer IMO. The gap is narrowing and the two opcos are getting ever closer as they race neck and neck for the bottom.
  17. I've DR'd I bet 100 tvs so far this peak ... far too many deliveries to do anything otherwise ... no sig required = not my worry ... granted, I know where most of my customers like to have their packages left and never left in view ...
  18. You're correct, I'm far superior .....

    Maybe you are, but the tattooed box monkeys I see driving for Ground aren't even close to the average Express courier.

    MFE, please be careful when climbing down from your high and mighty throne. Ground is quickly becoming the dominant OPCO with FedEx and it won't be too long before Express is a part-time delivery company with two part-time shifts. There have been major improvements in the appearance standards and delivery methods of ground drivers. Their time in transit is better than ours in the major markets. The sooner you come to the realization that Ground is the future of FedEx the happier you will be.
