I like your videos in general (including HAI), but I had a special interest in this one because I work in the print shop/mail services for a large engineering company and have to ship and receive stuff. I forwarded it to a few coworkers.

I try to avoid left turns, or probably more often I'll try to make the left turn at a light.
Brad Lemmond (9 days ago)
I was going to say if you like it, just use it, but if it was turning people off, that could be an issue.
Brad Lemmond (9 days ago)
That could be a full Wendover video, at least if he does anything other than just package shipping.

Like...WOW just imagine how many parcels Amazon would ship in a business day just from the U.S alone,and around the globe.,mind blowing!.That's a lot of dollars $ the courier companies must be turning over!.

Very well done vid! And thanks for the comment about Allegiant , who I work and maintain their older A/C . At the end of this year we will be retiring the last remaining MD-80 A/C..and picking up some brand new Airbus 320's.

When one of those packages is dropped off they are immediatly taken to the airport that minute.Thats why the price is crazy.

After all that, the fat, lazy FedEx driver carelessly tosses your package of fine china over your fence into your yard.

I wonder how it works in China, where you can overnight a package domestically for just a couple of dollars...

Let me tell you a story about FedEx. I ordered a furnace part from a company in California. I live in N.Y. in five days the part went to 10 different cities in 8 different states. The package even went to Syracuse, N.Y. about 2 hours from where I live AND then got rerouted to Wyoming.  I emailed FedEx. They said my package would arrive the next day. 1 1/2 hours later the package arrived at my doorstep. How's that for efficiency?

I’ve worked for ups in the warehouse and as a driver helper during Christmas time. It’s a really interesting process.

what happens when a fed ex driver and a ups driver meet? They get FedUp
Daniel Schuette (9 days ago)
I didn't watch the video. All I'm thinking of is a set Lewis Black did featuring Wendover "I said to them, 'It's nice to be back in the wonderful city of Wendover, Nevada.' And they simply replied, 'No, bendover'". Gets me everytime.

You forgot the dirty little secret about air freight: vast amounts of it never flies anywhere. It rides in long-haul trucks. A long haul tractor-trailer can carry up to about 48,000 pounds of cargo. At 68mph it can move that cargo 680 miles in 10 hours. That also happens to be around the diatance between most US major cargo hubs. Or, more to the point, secondary hubs between the super hubs. Orlando to Charlotte. Atlanta to Saint Louis. Cincinnati to Des Moines. Dallas to Mobile. Just because you pay for overnight "Air" doesn't mean it flew.

Fascinating. It's like well-oiled cogs in a machine, though I can't say I've ever been impressed with FedEx's service to Australia.

Amazon eliminates the middle man and does everything to maximize profit... isn't that a little too close to a vertical monopoly?

FedEx has actually stopped some of their feeder flights. They used to run a Cessna Caravan between Cheyenne, WY and Denver, CO where they have a hub, but a few years ago they switched to covering the approximately 120 mile distance with trucks.
