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.
"In addition to delivering every day of the week, FedEx Ground is making changes to enhance its efficiency in last-mile deliveries. 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 and delivered by the same service providers currently handling FedEx Ground residential packages.
Uh......no. Nice try, thanks for playing.Come January 1st 2020; UPS will be contractually required to eliminate Surepost and move those shipments back to UPS delivery drivers.
Nope it's just fine, thank you. You, on the other hand...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.
This is a joke, right? I am not arguing that, I am arguing the opposite. I am saying that is why surepost isn't going away, at least not next year. I said that FedEx is not eliminating smartpost, but that they would be phasing it out throughout the year. Whether they get rid of it entirely after that remains to be seen.Please show me in Webster's where "vast majority" is defined as "all".
That is what the language appears to say. Surepost is only allowed as a defense tool against competitors using a similar service, or to take business away from competitors using similar services.In the union contract when FedEx stops using the post office UPS has to as well?
