FedEx is very good about keeping anything negative out of the news, but I know that employee theft is skyrocketing. In my district, corporate security has recently given several employees a very public escort from the building for stealing IPods or cell phones. Our local ramp was missing a bunch of laptops, and I've heard through the grapevine that they can't account for a large amount of jewelry in one station. This is interesting because it appears that most of these people are getting away with the thefts and that those that are eventually caught are able to keep up the thefts for a long period of time. I'm guessing that the vaunted FedEx tracking system isn't quite as good as they say and that corporate security is either overwhelmed or not very good at what they do. I suspect it's a bit of both. Given the state of morale at FedEx these days, are most of these thefts revenge or are they for the money? I can actually envision someone tossing a pkg in a dumpster or at least emptying it's contents and never "profiting" from doing so, as opposed to a traditional thief who re-sells the merchandise. If you deliver an empty pkg, was it empty when you got it, or did you take it? I doubt FedEx is willing to rsik a lawsuit to find out in most cases.I disagree with either action, but it's interesting to see how impotent FedEx is at dealing with the problem.
