Hey I hope you enjoy this new video (and the new logo!) As always, this video wouldn't exist without Squarespace's support so make sure to check them out!

I dont know if you can see this message, but I really wanted to know how these logistics companies sort addresses and deliver the goods in the most efficient way. Cheers. Keep up on the good work!

Very much enjoyed the video, but your logo seems dated, as in the 1980s.
GWDeathscythe18 (1 year ago)
Really awesome video, gave me a very nice intro to how these companies work. I have just one suggestion, which is to write out #s / figures when saying each company has X number of planes, Y number of routes, etc. The visual will definitely help stick better, thanks!

This video left out that your package can be put on the wrong plane and have to be reshipped and another reason for packages comming late is that bad weather will make a plane land at an airport that is usually a state away from its destination.

How overnight shipping works: 1- The package isn’t actually “shipped”, planes are used. 2- Planes can easily bring you the cargo faster because they fly more than 10 times faster than a ship.

Which is faster ups or FedEx? Whoever knows please reply.
MrJuvefrank (8 days ago)
If you live closer to Memphis,Fedex is faster if the origin is close to the destination. People have to do funny things in planes, such as ride to a stop over that is thousands of miles in the wrong direction.

Good story. But it doesn't apply to FedEx--they can get your billing straight but it's a crapshoot as to if your package will show up as "guaranteed" overnight for the price of your first born.

I live in Australia, and order a fair bit of stuff from the US. For me, the best strategy is to just order from businesses based in or near los angeles. Even with just expedited USPS international, if you time your orders right and get the order in at 9AM to the store, they can have it at LAX that afternoon at which point its put on one of the many overnight direct flights to Sydney. The plane lands early in the morning, and then you typically get it the next day or same day depending on how busy customs is.

I work as a air handler for a small intl airport in Florida. So far, we get around 3-5 planes a day. Our work starts very early at 5:30. Some locations at 4:00 and in three hours we have emptied out, sorted and loaded the trucks to deliver to you overnight. While unloading, the planes are immediately loaded and taxing away. Its a party that starts every morning.

How many tones of commercial cargo do they load on regular passenger ships? And why the average fly ticket is so expensive? Are they mental? And how you can know if there is some dead body transportating on your ship? Most be free for passenger to fly on a body cargo fly, isn’t it?

Memphis isn't a big city? Maybe not compared to New York or Chicago but you obviously haven't driven through Memphis. It's a pretty big city man and I've been driving through there going to north Tennessee all my life.

As a FedEx truck driver, I STRONGLY recommend you use a package pickup location rather than home delivery. As states in the video, sometimes theres not enough Freight to warrant sending a truck or plane. However pickup locations act as collection points, which means they might just have enough Freight for regular service. Pickup locations are usually cheaper, quicker, and in an age of porch pirates, safer overall.

k stfu about in being in your recommendations, wouldn’t you want some variety here and there? also no one cares

I wouldn't call Louisville a "small city". Just because you can't fly from there to the west coast means little when you consider the fact that it has a population of 120k more people than Atlanta, yet ive flown from Atlanta to Japan nonstop. A bigger airport doesn't make it a larger city. Louisville ranks just behind Las Vegas, and ahead of cities such as Miami, Sacramento, Atlanta in terms of population.

So, fun story. We were camping in Memphis one time a few summers ago and one night we just had plane after plane fly over the heads of our tent. Had no idea FedEx had a super-hub there. It was seriously a plane every 5 minutes for 3 hours straight. Absolutely insane.

I'd love to see a video done on usps's efficiency... I was waiting in line for 15 minutes just to get my overflow mail. One person behind the counter, another walking around asking people if they are paying with a credit card and if they were escorting them to the self service machine. In the time it took her to do that with people and walk them through it all she could of simply waited on probably twice as many people.

It's very strange to see Memphis presented to me because even though it's a large city, ou never see it in any media like movies or Tv shows. I think I read a book where Memphis is just mentioned as the home of a character but thats about it

Great vid. Hopefully it answers a lot of people’s question on why their package is in Memphis. Wish you also mentioned that Fedex Ground is its own entity. More costly and takes longer.

Philly Choel sorry to single you out but I see that you commented recently. In your town do you have amazon trucks delivering packages? I’m wondering because I live in Seattle and am wondering if it’s only being used here/large cities or if they’re everywhere
