    This week our center lost a big (feeder) pick-up account to FedEx. Apparently a very clever Fedex
    sales rep is putting the fear of God in the minds of our customers. "Avoid any potential shipping
    disruption this summer and ship with us now". Are there those of you talking to customers about the
    contract? Have you been told not to? Does this pressure from Fedex help us or hurt us with

    Shippers switch shipping companies all the time some for good reason some for bad reasons. Some get trick with lower teaser rates and other get tricking with nonsense. I have seen shipper go just to come back later after they figured out they got hoodwinked.
