TIP: Use USPS for cheaper overnight shipping. USPS outsources their flying to FedEx for Overnight packages.

I've always marveled at how fast I can get parts shipped from far flung corners of the globe to customers in one night. Fed Ex does it for a LOT cheaper than UPS....however in the short game you can't beat UPS.

FedEx does operate some new aircraft. The 777-200LRF is a rather expensive plane dedicated primarily to the Asia routes (similar to how UPS operates their 747-8F). Also, FedEx has ordered some new-build 767 jets from Boeing, but it's an old model so they got them relatively cheap.

That's cool, but my piano teacher showed me the map of one of her packages. It went from China to Anchorage, then Memphis, and finally, Seattle. I'm guessing there's still a few flaws in the system, or because it wasn't overnight shipping. The whole thing about overnight shipping is confusing.

I was on a Delta flight from Dallas to Indy and I was sitting there watching them load luggage onto the plane when I noticed that there were FedEx packages being loaded into the very front cargo bay. So FedEx must have share agreements with the airlines as well. Like a secondary routes if a package got missed or showed up late or whatever. Or it was like the cheapest four day delivery and that's how they utilize the extra capacity.

All wonderful, but one large courier firm (not the wonderful Fedex) managed to drive my car keys around all day without delivering them to me from the garage 130 miles away as they claimed that the driver couldn't read their own label, it took 30 hours for my keys to do the last 50 miles. Did the idiot try to phone me to check? No, so why take my number? Had the same firm found me with the same details the week before? Yes.
