FedEx Ground to deliver on Sundays
Here we go. Get ready to follow suit boys and girls.
Nope, it will be a regular scheduled day. They will hire new guys with a Sunday schedule or force the lower guys onto them. We been doing Sundays in feeders for a while now . It was only a matter of time before it went to package .
Yeah, these 22.4 jobs are gonna be great! Good news is if you wanna go home Monday or Tuesday, I have a feeling there will be plenty of opportunity.
Wonder if they’ll be a NDA product for Sunday.
In a way this is great news. More hours for union labor.
At a lower rate than their predecessors.
We didn't get any yet.
Our center just posted a “ part-time reg temp” bid lol, where’s these full-time combo jobs at? I think we were lied too..NOW WHERE IS MY BACK PAY
Damn right. I want my beer money.
I also read FedEx will start delivering all their SmartPost. Does this mean we’ll deliver all our SurePost? Isn’t there some clause that we only give the USPS SurePost if FedEx does the same?
Remember where you read this?
SurePost clause in the Master; but I re-read and it’s just super vague about a “Competition Committee” that reviews stuff every quarter. Article 26 Section 4
Here’s the FedEx article about them delivering SmartPost:
From the article:
As part of the announcement, FedEx also said it planned to make changes to improve the efficiency of last-mile delivery. Roughly two million FedEx SmartPost packages previously given to the U.S. Postal Service for residential delivery will start to be integrated into FedEx Ground operations.
The release states in part:
“Since 2016, state-of-the-art technology has enabled the movement of a FedEx SmartPost package into the FedEx Ground network when another package is destined to the same or nearby address. This has resulted in the integration of approximately 20 percent of FedEx SmartPost packages to date. Starting this fall, the integration of these packages will be significantly accelerated, and the vast majority of FedEx SmartPost package volume is expected to be integrated into FedEx Ground operations for final delivery by the end of 2020.”
There's still no plan in my local to deliver Saturday ground never mind Sunday.
And the plan they do have for hubs running Saturdays is costing the company millions. Don't see them planning to loose that kind of money 2 days a week.
They're going to have to do something. What is to keep shippers using us when Fedex will Deliver it on sunday for them?
