After reading the thread about definite time ad I decided to do some research. These rates are based on a daily UPS pickup, 5 lb pkg to zones 2 and zone 8 and they are residential. zone 2 UPS 5.08 fdx 5.00 zone 8 UPS 7.35 fdx 7.24 Our rates included fuel surcharge I don't believe theirs did but can't be positive. Additional services signature required-UPS 2.00 fdx 2.00 date certain-UPS 0.00 fdx 3.00 evening delivery UPS n/a fdx 7.00 by appointment UPS n/a fdx 15.00 So if you want that date certain, evening, by appointment pkg from fdx it will cost you an additional 25.00. Funny they don't mention that in the commercial. If you don't want evening and appointment but do want date certain you will pay 3.00 more for fdx. It would be nice if that fdx contract driver that's on the board sometime would let us know what they think about the evening delivery thing.
