Unbelievably stupid!!!!!! Sending packages from all over the world to one building, to go out again. That building could be 2000 miles in the opposite direction of your package destination. And most likely is! UPS is the same way. Stupid beyond belief!

I agreed with most comments about not handle carefully with these employees. It comes down with management people who do not do their work correctly. If you surf the Japanese delivery, how do they do it. I witnessed one Fed Ex guy throwing a next customer package on the truck floor via my camera. I bet the driver threw my package too before reaching my home. My package was ripped open 3" square and it was heavy equipment called Vise. Opened it up and it dented at the corner. They need to train their employees better with customer services.

FedEx is a horrible company to work for I worked for them and the work conditions in the warehouse is unsafe and there practices are unfair. I got fired even though I had a doctor's note. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND DON'T WORK FOR FEDEX

Fedex tracking shows delivered but item is not here. Looks like they take packages at the facility and makes up tracking as delivered.

I worked in ontrac shipping hub and I guarantee you we have zero absolute zero regard for fragile packages or Handle With Care or this side up is meaningless we have thousands upon tens of thousands of packages that have to be arranged by ZIP code and be pulled off and thrown off of trucks and they are violently dumped and thrown and kicked and that is just a matter of the daily process there is absolutely zero regard to what type of package and hundreds of pounds of other packages will be stacked on top of that pie package with zero regard whatsoever

Sending a pie was not a good idea to show to the public. Clearly this pie was specially cared for because it was part of this news story but in real life that pie would have been a big pile of mush when it got delivered. This video is going to convince a bunch of morons to start mailing food in the mail which will cause a disaster on everyone else’s deliveries. Food will spill and leak if not packed the right way which in turn will make a mess on all the other boxes and people around it. It’s arrogant for people to want their packages to be personally catered like that pie while there are thousands on packages being processed every minute nonstop. Packages go through a certain amount of rough handing as expected within this madness of shipping under a large scale. It’s the basic nature of the beast and everyone should treat it as such by not mailing crap that’s going to inconvenient others.

For those people who bitch about the fact that packages get mishandled occasionally... I handle several thousand packages a day and I will tell you this, not every package can be gingery placed on a feather pillow, in fact you are constantly pushed to go fast and to not care about quality. Maybe if you want your shit to arrive in a day, wrap it tight because it might get thrown 15 feet

Always pack your idem with a good box, with lots of bubble wrap, wrap up the idem as much as you can, then you need to put some packing peanuts on the bottom and around the Whole box, after you place your idem in you need to take it up with some good high quality packing tape, then send it to the post office, if you poorly pack it then you get this result https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqcEHIfHcvM

The Hawaiian mum could have bake the cake herself. Then kerosene would not have been wasted for 6000 miles and the cake would have cost only $2 dollars and would be fresh with no preservatives. Think about it, Mum!!!

It's just a demonstration there's already enough package wasting kerosene.

I worked for fedex ground for a short time out of San Antonio, these guys are bunch of slave drivers. They treat their employees like sh&t. Turning off the water fountain so they could not get any drinking water, telling them they need to go back to work. People would go to the bathroom and never return, horrible.

Fake. The box didnt go with the other boxes in the big pile. Fake. You used multiple boxes for the camerawork. Box had a camera on it, then it didnt. Fake. Box only went in flat parts of the system. Fake news. A lie. A production. Fake.
Guy does Random things (1 month ago)
Why would you leave a camera on a pie?
entertainment-knone (2 months ago)
The package was treated with kid gloves because everyone knew this was being videotaped for broadcast. I would never consent to having something shipped by FedEX, UPS or any of those delivery services. I'm fortunate with USPS because I live in a community where they get a signature for all packages and what I order is typically delivered on time, in two days.
