Hey folks I' am a new member here and just wanted to get some questions answered by some knowledgeable folks. I've read a few posts about people talking about FedEx contractors and you fine people gave them really good advices and what not, so I hope you can help me. I was wondering what the 3-types of FedEx contractors mean? Explaining it to me like I' am a 5 year old (new to this game) FedEx Custom Critical Owner/Operator FedEx Ground Independent Contractor FedEx Home Delivery Independent Contractor My father has been looking for other opportunities and a friend told him about FedEx contracting, didn't give to much detail about it though. He's saved what he could through the years (around 35k) and is looking to buy one of those Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cargo Vans (Also does he have to buy the cargo van brand new or can he buy a used 2011-2012 one) But first wanted to get a little information as to which route he should take out of those 3 possible contracting jobs offered by FedEx, so what you guys think? The hard work isn't the problem, he is physically fit and strong, so long drives and sleepless nights are not a problem. He is just like all of us looking for the most lucrative offering. I'd appreciate you fine folks helping my father in answering his questions, I thank you all for your time dedicated to helping our family through this tough financial time.
