Can you do a video of how credit card purchases work, like, how the money is debited, where the charge is routed to, how long it takes, etc? Also, what about ATM's?

This was an excellent video in both content and production. I especially liked the how the city pairs were shown with a rotating globe which would accelerate and decelerate to center the city on screen.

Sometimes my office gets first overnight packages at 7, but no one is there to receive them so they come back at 10. Now I feel like such a jerk

Slight correction, Fedex's hub isn't in Dallas but rather Fort Worth at Alliance Airport.

Rumors go Russia and China will create common project an airline a poster a posting company and a shipper cause they would be the first and second largest economies in world and West will depend on them exclusively

The Hollandese "In time courier " is the biggest in Europe but another Hollander TNT is among the 4 largest in world while DHL are Germans. Absolutely normal situation Europe is richer bigger busier than USA so everything is more quality quantity except negative stuff where nobody beats USA!

Casey Sullivan (15 days ago)
Nice video and interesting but one thing. There is not a Boeing 747-800. The one in the video was a 747-8i. Boeing has moved away from the -x00 numbering and toward -x numbering as seen on the 787-8, -9 and so on.

Pure genius. You never stop to think about this stuff when you click “Overnight” on your shipping option;and has always blown my mind how this works. Just wait until Amazon cops a few more jets...... ill be interested to see THEIR take on this system!

Cool stuff, but all I can think about is how basic your site looks, and how seemingly unnecessary using SS to make it would be.

I have enjoyed the option of overnight shipping for my entire career. While it is considered "expensive" it has made every business I worked for more efficient where people didn't need to wait around to complete projects. Overnight shipping is a great defense against the loose ends and mistakes of people working on complicated projects. I have seen overnight shipping save reputations and make nice successes. In the right situations, it seems to be worth every penny.

DO NOT BUY OVERNIGHT SHIPPING FROM FED EX ON A FRIDAY you’ll get your fucken package on Monday I paid 23.00 for shipping

Slightly different, but related; Can you explain how Chinese companies can afford to sell me something for 10p (pence/cents) and have it shipped half way around the world for free?! How are they doing that?

Here in the Netherlands there are more companies who ship their own products to their customers. Mostly because someone could drive from the northern most point of the country to the southern most point and back within the same day, or even back to the south again if they really want to.. xD

All this time I'm just wondering about the pile of bullshit called "English". This is because you SHIP CARgo with an airplane.

And I’m over here always complaining I’m not paying for next day shipping 10$,12$ ect wait a week for the free shipping. But now seeing this video the 10$ for next day shipping is a weight of my back knowing I’m not getting ripped off. They look like a fucking army ready to ship thousands of Soldiers to anyone house over night to start a war for 10$ next day shipping don’t start no shit with fedex,ups,dhl or find swat with thousands of weapons at ya door over night 😂

Maybe the old aircraft should be retrofitted with methods to increase efficiency (ie winglets) to lower fuel costs, and make oil last a few more days.

I once received a ups overnight package from a 10-mile far town. The tracking shows that the package has flown to Lexington, KY, which is about 700 miles away and back. The shipping companies might need to improve their shipping algorithm.

There’s no 747-800. It’s called a 747-8F. Boeing’s new naming system.
