Fat Freddy got that business along with all the truck freight he can steal off the LTL's and dump over to that so called "small package" carrier Fedex Ground.
November would be pretty early. You might be in a test market. Keeping that volume in the Ground network over peak will be interesting. They tell us to expect it sometime next year, no set time table yet, but my best guess is June 1 to start the new fiscal year.
Come January 1st 2020; UPS will be contractually required to eliminate Surepost and move those shipments back to UPS delivery drivers.
You may want to work on your reading comprehension.
In the union contract when FedEx stops using the post office UPS has to as well?Nope it's just fine, thank you. You, on the other hand...
"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."
@browned out is asserting that surepost should be eliminated as of January 1 next year, based on the premise that once fedex eliminates smartpost UPS is contractually obligated to eliminate surepost. Even if that were true, based on the info from @worldwide's post, FedEx is not eliminating smartpost entirely as of the first of next year, or even by the end of next year. So there is no support for @browned out's assertion. Is that clear enough for you? You would think that after all the times you've challenged me and lost, you might think a little before doing it again, but I guess not.
Please show me in Webster's where "vast majority" is defined as "all".
