We will lose three feeders jobs in the Spingfield, MO area, because Fedex underbid UPS so much that they are actually losing money on the contract just to get it from UPS.
....From what I heard its rough handling complaints and damaged packages,,,,,,,,,,,,,,same reason why Dell shipped heavy to us last 3 weeks.........j
What are you basing this on? 1 Pure hearsay and scapegoating. As much as I am a loyal UPSer, we, together as a system to screw over our accounts. Missed scans (due to crappy scanning equipment and over-worked employees who have to load 3 trailers at once), improperly tagged at client's house, horrible handling because we pay our handlers just over minimum wage.We will lose three feeders jobs in the Spingfield, MO area, because Fedex underbid UPS so much that they are actually losing money on the contract just to get it from UPS.
We lost dell?!? I don't think so. My car was crammed with them the past 4 days.
It is true they underbid/undercut. It happened to one of my accounts. After a few weeks of dealing with 2 different services i.e. which driver does this go to, they switched back.
We lost Dell to FedEx temporarily like 2 years ago, and they messed it up so bad that Dell came back, but from what I hear from my post office friend is that the post office will be Dells shipper very soon. It has a new twist. The post office won't be delivering them, the people have to come to the office and pick them up.
Dell is a nightmare anyways. I'm sure we make a ton of money but the hoopla surrounding getting these delivered to residentials is crazy. I get so many "Delivery after 530pm" requests and when I tell them no I get the "I'm calling Dell and having them switch to FedEx" lines all the time.
It makes me mad the UPS is made the villan because of Dell.
