Curious how does the whole ISP thing work. A guy buys a route from Fedex, then buys trucks, tools, fuel, mechanics, uniforms, hires drivers and they all meet inside a building that's leased by Fedex with the Fedex name all over it, to deliver packages it gets from Fedex. They all follow the rules Fedex lays down and they make business. My question is, how long is the contract the ISP signs with Fedex? Is it 5 or 10 years. What assurance does an ISPer have if the company, after being sued time and time again over this business model they've created, decides to ask those drivers to one day become employees at the same pay and all? Will Fedex buy the trucks off of the ISP and give him/her a nice payout? When it comes down to it, its the companies packages and buildings what will they do for the ISPer? A lot of Express trucks are being replaced by vans day by day. I'm curious to know what the company is doing with those trucks? are they storing them away for a day when they decide to hire bunch of guys away from the ISPer? I would hope the ISP at least get a 20 year contract because being left high and dry with a bunch of tools no longer need, might make some wonder if its worth the risk. Maybe the ISPers are doing so well that its doesn't matter. Maybe they've already made enough to retire on from the ground game. At least someone did well.
