16 million packages vs. 7 million
100,000 vehicles vs. 22,000 vehicles
somethings not adding up!?
You're not taking into consideration that we fly a lot of our freight. We have more than twice the number of planes as UPS.
Probably because fedex doesn't own the ground vehicles. Maybe they aren't added in to the equation?
Those numbers are misleading as it only mentions FedEx GROUND vehicles, not Express vehicles. In total vehicles FedEx has the world's largest fleet. But they are right, FedEx is the biggest overnight air freight service, UPS is biggest ground freight, or trucked, service.
I read it as vehicles on the ground. In other words, fedex corps vehicles they own (express vehicle fleet). Not vehicles used by the FedEx ground opco.
Either way the numbers really don't make sense.
Express has over 70,000 couriers just in the States last I heard. Really think we're making do with 22,000 vehicles? FedEx has the world's largest vehicle fleet.
That's why I said the numbers don't make sense. That's just how I read it. Maybe it's just tractor trailers? 22000 seems very low for ground. But I could be wrong...
I think that data is very old.
Look at how many electric vehicles it shows X having, we've got waaaaaaaaay more than 19.
Heck, there's about 10 at a sta. near me.
how many trucks do you need...to deliver an enevlope? LOL
If we only delivered envelopes they'd just have us use bicycles.
Same number as UPS drivers needed to screw in a lightbulb...
how many years of education do you need...to spell envelope? LOL
The same amout of education you need to make 100K. Any more questions from the purple peanut gallery?
Do they really let you drive a company vehicle brain damaged?
Yea one more question. Are you trying to over compensate for something you are lacking?
Thread of the year!
As of May 31, 2012, this segment operated approximately 58,000 vehicles and trailers from a network of 366 service centers. Fed-EX
It operates a fleet of approximately 101,000 package cars, vans, tractors, and motorcycles; UPS
A little misleading in advertising.
