How fast does time fly when being a courier driver? Seems like it would go by very fast

It's all fun and games until it says your package is delivered yet the package or FedEx truck is nowhere to be seen

Oh man, should I call you boss?; seeing as you guys bought TNT a few years back :P... we over here in Australia as paid by the hour, and mostly in a union, (I think like 98% of drivers are union, even our sub-contractors) But then Ive only worked for TNT for 3 years... and another company for 11.5 years. Here we always have to go back to the depot to drop the trucks off, so our start and end of route is always at the depot. As for ATL; all parcels need to be signed for, unless stated it doesnt... (has an ATL on it, either a sticker attached, or signed note on door saying to leave.. must be signed note, and excluding electronics)

I really enjoying your vlogs. I would sincerely appreciate that if you could review your truck please. Do you have one of these Isuzu vans or do you have another make and model? How about the guys in these Ford Transits? Without the side door, could you handle getting out the drivers side all day long? Thanks a million if you could answer my questions?
Hong Shi (7 months ago)
You are quite the inspiration. Thank you

I drive one of the trucks with "no doors" not much to it. I wish I could make videos about the tuck but I'm limited at this point and time

I need advice on the best shoes to buy for work as a FedEx driver, I’m about 6’1 and 270 lbs. I mentioned that to let you know I’m looking for cushion and support, I want a safe shoe as far as traction for slipping and protection from falling packages, but I also don’t want anything too heavy, like the typical work boot
Travis Guin (7 months ago)
Slip resistant shoes are a must!
Jose Tapia (7 months ago)
I personally go with the Adidas cloudfoam.
CThompsonTv (8 months ago)
I wear Nike but brooks and asics are really good shoes for this job

I was only giving two days of training before I was on my own

Gave up my route of over 150 stops a day. Brought a cargo van , got a few contracts. It's been two months since I started this new venture and so far so good I hop out maybe 10 -12 times compared too over 150 stops 200 plus when it peaks. The 💰 is bigger(weight+miles) and steady flow. I'm planning on putting up at least 20racks in 12 months to get some more vans and hire a couple drivers. I do drive alot more which means I'm filling up the tank at least twice a week. "It cost to be the boss" . good luck with your new route hope its easier for you.

Makeup & Chill w/ Dom (8 months ago)
You actually got me thinking about becoming a driver. I’m low key scared but I’m definitely thinking about it 😬😬
Mr. E (8 months ago)

Clynt Beastwood (8 months ago)

Kentray The Real Deal Brown (8 months ago)
I’m a Ground driver my route is 50/50 50% businesses & 50% houses. The only thing I don’t like about Ground is the pickups. But HD routes looks a lot easier. I was thinking about switching over to HD.
Sam Known (8 months ago)
I’ve been doing secuirty for three years and I’ve finally had it. I wanted to move in a vertical direction and not a horizontal one, tomorrow I start my new job with Fedex and thanks to your vids I’ve gained some knowledge to what to expect, thanks for the awesome videos keep up the good work!
CThompsonTv (8 months ago)
That's what it's all about, helping others. Good luck to ya man

You did not mention one thing to learn your route in 2 weeks.
CThompsonTv (8 months ago)
It's to come...
Pine Family (8 months ago)
I’m doing the driving test tomorrow. I’m nervous what should I be expecting? Basic driving?
Trey (8 months ago)
Pine Family Well good luck bro! 😂 You'll do great
CThompsonTv (8 months ago)
It most likely won't be stick. They have mainly automatic trucks. Back up to a dock, go on the highway, and that's basically it
Pine Family (8 months ago)
Trey take my FedEx driving test tomorrow. I don’t know how to drive stick so hopefully not lmao
Trey (8 months ago)
Pine Family My driving test consisted of just basically knowing how to drive a manual truck at UPS. There was further testing afterwards (spotting blind spots, checking mirrors every couple seconds). But depending on where you're working, you may not have to worry about that stuff
klazzikk (8 months ago)
lol i thought you was gonna show us how to learn the route
Alpha Saiyan (8 months ago)
My ground route is like 90% residences and 10% businesses. It's a nice route.
Alpha Saiyan (8 months ago)
Omar Naranjo not bad. Sounds like my coworkers. A typical day for me is 110 stops/200pkgs. But can be 150 stops/250pkgs some days.
Omar Naranjo (8 months ago)
my hd route has been turning into ground 180 stops / 260 packages on a light day 140 stops /210 packages
Scott D (8 months ago)
Alpha Since '95 I’m jealous my HD route is usually 40% apts 20% businesses and the rest houses it’s a doozie some days. When I hear my coworkers with routes like yours bitchin about work I’m like... what??
Caleb Barnard (8 months ago)
Good stuff man, congrats! I'm training on a new Route Tuesday as well. Going from a Ground Route to HD.. the Route is like 5 mins from my Home so they are gonna let me drive the truck back and forth to work.. it's gonna save me a lot of money on gas also from wearing my vehicle out.. Good luck man, I hope to learn this Route in just a couple of weeks too.
Scott D (7 months ago)
Caleb Barnard That means you cold use your place for bathroom breaks or lunch breaks to cool off in summer with AC and warm up in winter if you live somewhere that gets cold (like I do).
CThompsonTv (8 months ago)
Thanks man, good luck as well! Glad you found a route closer to where you live
whocareslol222222 (8 months ago)
i thought you quit your other route because you were tired being out so late. why did you pick up another difficult route?
Scott D (8 months ago)
CThompsonTv you just want a cozier, cleaner place for bathroom emergencies too I bet haha
CThompsonTv (8 months ago)
The route gets off earlier and not as many pickups. Plus, it's closer to my home.
Scott D (8 months ago)
Bro, do I need to come down there to program the time on the microwave? 😆
Scott D (8 months ago)
CThompsonTv BRO!! I’m dyin here just thinking now you left that smoke detector beeping for who-knows how long. Haha good times
CThompsonTv (8 months ago)
That was in my last apartment lol
Scott D (8 months ago)
CThompsonTv okay okay.... But what about the smoke detector? 😭😭
CThompsonTv (8 months ago)
😂 it's been like that for months

Should i rely on GPS or turn by turns...Rookie here
GonG Sixfourthreenine (8 months ago)
In my opinion, turn by turns and a GPS with your manifest will make most of your days easier, but they seem to be detrimental to actuality learning a route. Just my 2 cents as a BC.
Scott D (8 months ago)
I like maps and knowing how to read “hundred” blocks. Helps the most in the long run and don’t be afraid to get lost because you’ll learn little side streets and maybe secret little short cuts in due time. GPS can’t always get you where you need to go and may take you in circles. Oh and don’t be afraid to ask for help it’s ok dude.
CThompsonTv (8 months ago)
Anything that helps you learn the route use it
