    Has anyone noticed how small FedEx's package cars are?

    Express has more sprinters/vans because we deliver a lot less bulk than you guys do, generally the packages we deliver are small to medium boxes and a lot of paper. And on the pick up side we generally pick up a lot of paper and less bulk, though a few routes at my station do come back packed with boxes but only on occasion

    Yes, but have you ever noticed how much bigger UPS cars are?

    Actually there's plenty of irregs. Especially when you can order anything from Amazon.

    Their vans seem to have a whole lot more dents and dings too.

    UPS trucks look much nicer than Fedex trucks in my opinion. More elegant in design and have nicer color. The Fedex trucks where I live are all so dirty also.

    You ever see the inside of one. They are practically empty every time I have seen the inside of one.

    The station I'm at only washes the trucks once a week. Used to be every other day but they decided they needed to save money. I never see a dirty UPS truck at the beginning of the day.

    Plenty of dirty ones on my route. I remember when ours were washed daily whether they needed it or not. I have a rural route, and if mine gets washed every other week, I'm lucky.

    Question to any Fedex employee. Are Fedex express trucks company property and are their drivers contractors or employees?

    They are property of FedEx Corp.
