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.

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!

Fedex got all this money but don't want to pay employees as much they worth or give them 8 hr shift . They will rather give them part time and cut days and hours.

3:56 At the age of 11 most people make this mistake about turbo prop airplanes. You and many other people in the media call it a “propeller” airplane. All planes have propellers in their jets. Just wanted to help fix a mistake.

what I wanna know is how Chinese companies can ship a cheaper product for free and get it in 2-4 weeks, while the same product from my city is more expensive PLUS shipping and i get it in 1-2 weeks?!
TheRocco96 (1 month ago)
They can ship your package halfway acros the globe in one night. The following morning the UPS driver doesn't bother to stop at your house but just enters "delivery failed" in the tracking system, and you need to schedule a new delivery.

Speed and efficiency?! I BEG TO DIFFER!! How do you mess up an overnight delivery from Arkadelphia, Arkansas to Texarkana, Arkansas? Somehow they managed to and one day later it still sits in Monroe, Louisiana. And don't get me started on their customer service..... Speed and efficiency???? Try again...

The trick is that they throw your package as hard as they can to where you live so it ruins the package

Worked for FedEx. Actually, the Memphis Hub is called the World Hub, but does actually have the Super Hub in it like the video mentioned...and a Mega Hub...and an Ultra Hub...and an Auto Hub...and an Old Hub...and a Green Hub...and mini restaurants like Subways...and a gas station...and shuttle buses to get around inside because just that one hub is that huge...no joke. And we shipped everything. Animals, human remains, a crap ton of computers and gaming monitors, gold and silver, celebrity's stuff, (saw John Legend's tour equipment, so I knew about the tour a week before it was announced) one of the Super Bowl trophies once, some pandas once, but mostly it's other corps using FedEx's logistics to get stuff to their customers, like Dell, or Volvo, or the US postal service.

I'd like to explain how overnight, or actually anything, DOESN'T WORK in own circumstances. Thanks for fucking nothing, FEDEX. This is....now: I ordered an item via ebay; due Monday via FedEx. Which after three days of tracking, magically morphed from Monday....sometime, to Tuesday...sometime. Why is this an issue? It's a long contorted story, but here goes: Because somehow, my 44-unit apt. bldg., built in 1959, and 100% residential is usage, no commercial use....was redlined by FedEx as being "commercial or industrial use", and I couldn't reroute the package. My address....didn't qualify for the service. The RESIDENTIAL address I've had for more than 22 years. So then I go to the FedEx Office/Shipping Center, two blocks away. Despite having multiple forms of ID, my tracking#, proof of purchase, ETC- the staff there wouldn't allow me- nor were they allowed to- re-route the incoming package to THEIR address, for mke to pick up later. Why is this important? Because my building has an intercom system on the exterior, hardwired to LANDline telephones. Which works great if you have a landline. And I haven't for more than ten years. Like most folks. So the driver, upon delivery, has no way to alert/buzz, contact me. Even with an exterior note to a driver....they WILL NOT even attempt to call the provided phone number for you to scamper down and pick it up. Fucking nope.....you get a stickie announcing how they used their ass and tried to deliver it. Excuse the snark....but now I have to waste all fucking day on Tuesday bird-dogging a FedEx truck for a delivery, that will happen "something that day". Oh- this isn't in my cushy unit- this is on the street. Even fucking Comcast gives you a better idea as to when they're going to deliver, the window. And even a pizza place has more integrity as to actually delivering. Now all the shit I rearranged last Friday, for this Monday's stakeout- has now been cancelled and pushed to the following day, Tuesday. Thanks FedEx, you've been fucking swell to work with! FedEx= It's like living in a Third Word country dealing with them. Meanwhile, the Post Office?; they deliver to my Apt FRONT door. I even get a knock. The bigger knock should be on all the other services who don't make an effort. Here's a concept: REQUIRE a receiver's Phone#, just like a fucking delivery address is required. Duh. Then upon delivery NOTIFY the recipients. Because see, that info is already embedded by the shipper for use by the driver. Just like an address is! Double duh. Fuck, peeps....this is 101 stuff.

Worked at the Memphis Hub for awhile.. I worked specifically in Heavy Weight, anything over 150 lbs was handled in my area, the size of 4 football fields, ran by over 2000 forklifts. The Memphis world hub is absolutely mind blowing. Planes come in every less 2 minutes on a normal day, spread throughout the sky by 3 miles and run like clockwork. It's amazing to see

I'm a trucker. When I delivered a trailer at ups in memphis at 4 am near the airport, there were people there working just like daytime, it was extremely busy, people constantly moving around, I have 10 seconds to dock otherwise I'm holding up traffic.
