+mike watters I mean the planes and sorting machines can still operate at day, though the last step, i.e. delivery to ur doorstep should be carried out at suitable times.

+Alvin Hew would you like to have a delivery person bang at your door in the day time or at 2 am when you are asleep

in my case: these KLM motherfuckers think its a good idea to fly from amsterdam to johannesburg while i live like 40 km from the airport and they depart normaly at 0:30 in the fucking morning

Really cool video, never put much thought into it, but it is impressive the sheer scale of logistics that goes into this.

I work with DHL getting these planes sent out, we have a contract with Amazon and service many of their planes as well as they utilize our sorting machine until they establish a hub of their own. I really admire DHL's grand scale they are enormous and really know what they are doing. Also we throw your packages even if they say fragile... :) With our time crunch there isn't enough time to softly package each safely.

Sheer madness, the world cannot sustain this ignorant madness of mankind. There is a limit to what we can get away with, why do you think that the usa western states have more destructive typhoons and hurricanes causing vast damage, well it will get worse.

Not all impressed with FedEx though, twice i have ordered from the US to Sweden and both times they sent the package back since they could not get a hold of me, that is when you leave the package at the local handout place so i will get a sms or slip in the mail box to pick it up, ended up cancelling the order since i can't afford keep paying $46 in shipment over and over.

DHL is lightning fast and has amazing customer service and tracking.
andrepduarte (8 days ago)
So very wasteful of fuel and resources... Not to mention terrible effects on pollution and climate. If we were just content with packages taking 3 days instead of 2, we could cut fuel by 40%! Do we really need this? Is it worth it, to kill thousands of people with pollutions and *millions* via the effects of climate change in a few decades? Just to have your crap from Amazon delivered in 2 days instead of 3?

How much do cargo pilots make as opposed to commercial pilots?
E1craZ4life (8 days ago)
From what I've heard, there doesn't really seem to be much difference in flying passengers or flying cargo, except that cargo is less likely to complain than passengers.

I work with fedex every day.  small towns like Wendover can not get there packages by 9 am that's a very tall order in fact fedex won't guarantee a 10:30 am delivery to a town that what they will guarantee is a delivery before 4 pm
brian turnbull (11 days ago)
Fedex buys NEW B.777's and UPS buys B.747-8's direct from Boeing. Only DHL uses older ex passenger aircraft.

Cypher 1o1 (17 days ago)
I wounder why noone ever combined passenger and fright airline travel fly passenger in the front to fill unutilized space from frequent flights and cargo in the back flown on pax flight plane utilization but also shiping cargo from one place to another you could probably cut time from shipping and cost for the passengers

They've tried that, building planes with COMBI configurations.

Nice video, but FALSE! The FedEx hub in Indianapolis Indiana is actually the 2nd biggest hub. Infact, the Indianapolis hub is projected to expand beyond the capacity of the hub in Memphis, because Indiana is actually the location that's ideally located. Indiana is coined "The Crossroads Of America" because of the the central location and the plethora of major US highways that intersect through the state. *Source: FedEx employee of 30+ years. Experience in both Memphis and Indianapolis hubs.

If amazon does make a shipping company will they have everything from delivery trucks and stuff like that or just air shipping
E1craZ4life (8 days ago)
They do have their own fleet of semi-trucks, although I haven't yet seen how Amazon delivers packages to their final destination. I do know that Amazon's air hub is in Cincinnati, and that they're currently renting DHL's warehouse there during the daytime.

Fedex smartpost. I bought a $13 solder located in New Jersey, it went to California before being delivered to my address in MARYLAND. FedEx smartpost is by far the worst FedEx shipping service.

SpaceC0re (22 days ago)
In some countries like France, which has one, if not the most developped rail system in the world, the overnight shipping is done entirely by Train. The number of planes used is ridiculously low, since why would you use a super expensive aircraft when you can use a modified TGV (Train à Grande Vitesse, High Speed Train) to deliver the packages maybe a few hours later, but using nothing like a plane in terms of money ?
moncorp1 Inc (23 days ago)
5:38 That was actually Fedex's original business model. It wasn't until the 90s or early 2000s that ALL domestic packages didn't go through Memphis. It actually wasn't all that inefficient when you realize planes were going in those directions anyway. It was only because sheer volume demanded it that they come up with feeder hubs. And by the way, Amazon (and Google) are the evil empire.

I hope UPS or FedEx will take over our mail once USPS is finally privatized. The USPS has NOT shown a profit in over two decades in a market that they monopolize and are demanding yet again another 1.6 billion dollar bailout!
GeorgeBonez (19 days ago)
Dave Bechtel well my research says different but I’m not going to argue that but they are currently asking for a 1.6 B bailout now and that isn’t up for debate. It’s a FACT!
Dave Bechtel (20 days ago)
The United States Postal Service has never received a bailout ! ! Stamps and postal fees for parcels are the only way they make any money. The more people that use the internet instead of sending a letter the less money they make. That is the biggest problem.

+E1craZ4life but that seems like in Europe there is small amount of those hubs, and almost all examples in this video are in USA

There are hubs in Europe, which were mentioned in the video. FedEx and UPS have their European hubs in Cologne, while DHL's is in Leipzig, Germany.
Petefirside Space (27 days ago)
Shouldn't the answer to this very simple question be: The goods are placed on a ship, and the ship travels overnight across the sea to it's destination. Surely, the answer is in the question. If it takes longer, then it is NOT overnight shipping.
