    Nearly two million FedEx SmartPost packages that were previously given to the U.S. Postal Service for delivery to homes every day will be increasingly integrated into FedEx Ground operations ”.. Now contractually Ups has to do the same. My building has on average about 6000 a day. Think of the opportunities. How does this ball get rolling?

    That doesn't require UPS to increase SurePost.

    The language is just the "penalty phase" if the company exceeds the agreed limits.

    FXG didn't eliminate it yet... I just delivered a bag that a FXG driver forgot of those Smart Post smalls to the post office

    When are you guys taking Smart Post Back

    We're slowly integrating them since most will be out for delivery on the weekends.


    So until the smart post name is still on those smalls, your company & ours will still be dropping off those USPS bulk bags to the post office

    & I'll continue to cram those USPS smalls in customers mailboxes (if they fit)

    That the impression I was under, as of now you are retaining 30 percent of smart post with the goal to slowly work up to keeping 100 percent by May.

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    Even if FedEx did completely eliminate smartpost, we would still have surepost. Watch and see.

    I agree that will happen. Then everyone will file grievances. Then teamsters give in and so ok. Isn’t that the normal cycle?

    We are going to run out of package cars far faster than that.
    Long gone are the days when we had 20 extra vehicles outside to utilize, all crushed.

    Can't they pay dues and initiation fees? Good enough. That's all that matters now.
