So a few days ago I had a customer tell me that ups pays fedex royalties for barcode software that they developed. This was told to him by a member of his family that worked for fedex. I told him that I had never heard of that, but maybe that was true...sort of like the zip+4 system that the post office started, I thought that ups does(or did) pay the usps rights to use this. Has anyone heard of this? I also had another customer tell me that one of his family members use to buy used ups vehicles and fix them up and use them as utility or moving vans. Now I just kept my mouth shut, but I was thinking to myself that this was bullshet, I thought ups was very strict about the crushing of the vehicles. Its the ol story of my fathers friends brothers aunt....yada yada. You know that the customers always know best!!!!
