Try online shopping in China you could order in the morning and get your package by that evening. Now that's fast. N.America, Europe have a lot to learn from China about shipping.

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

Memphis native checking in, still live near there, basically right underneath the airport's main landing and takeoff route. And I can confirm that it gets SUPER busy around 4 AM, every single morning, a plane takes off about every 60-90 seconds. At during the 10pm-midnight hours I can stand outside in my backyard and sometimes see as many as 5 planes in the air, all lined up for final approach.

DHL SUCKS.....They've damaged nearly every package they've ever delivered to me. I won't order from anyone who uses them. They held my life savings (401-K) for 2 weeks claiming they couldn't find my town,(the county seat). I arranged to meet them "ANYWHERE" and they arranged a meeting 30 miles away, then didn't show. after 2 hours on the phone they finally showed. It cost me hundreds perhaps a couple of thousand dollars in interest. I don't see how they stay in business, as good as Fed EX, UPS, and the postal service are.

Robin (4 days ago)
Overnight shipping DOES NOT WORK. At least here in Canada as customs holds everything up for an unreasonably long and nosey length of time. It purposely makes small business ordering from foreign suppliers very difficult, which acts as a great edge to big business. This has only become the case, through subtle procedural and policy changes within the last few years.

I'm impressed with the pure logic behind the methods used. Old planes are much cheaper and can do the shorter flights easily. The Alaska terminal is a gas station and sorting station for the world, because of its global location. Other centers are located as per human population. Damn we Americans have become Borge. Resistance is futile.

Fun fact: Applications for FedEx rose a staggering 30% after the release of the film Castaway.
Kinda weird if you think about it though, I mean Tom Hanks’ character was almost killed and had to endure years of being stranded on a deserted island all *because* he worked at FedEx, so you’d think the plot would’ve scared people into not applying for the job instead lol

I can testify that is a modern day miracle, as I went on vacation from Colorado to Arizona and layover in Albuquerque NM where I was in desperation mode for my meds. I’m elderly and got to have those meds, needless to say I set out on my trip and got to far to turn back before noticing that I didn’t have my meds. Well that’s where FedEx came into play, got my meds shipped to Albuquerque overnight and all was well.

I dislike amazon more and more. In other thoughts, I wonder why UPS FedEx and DHL dont buy those older planes then throw on new engines that are more efficient. Probably one of the reasons the USAF hasnt thwon on new engines onto thier B-52's though.
