    I believe fedex can deliver their next day freight by 10:30 a.m. , almost any carrier can. Question could be "Is it more profitable to deliver before 10:30 or 10:31?". Any carrier can deliver by 10:30 a.m. all they have to do is tell the shipper that this only applies to the freight pickup by 6:30 the night before and the destination can be no further than 300 miles, and at some points 550 miles. I work for a small s@#t cracker box outfit called vitran, ran by some of the dumbest people on this side of the milkyway and somehow they have delivered before 10:30a.m. time and time again, and if it made it there after 10:30 a.m. the shipping charges were for free. They dont do that anymore, because a lot of customers have downsized there shipping and receiving departments. Nowadays you send a truck with 3 delivers on it before 10:30 you might get the first one off easy but that 2nd stop might have 5 trucks in front of you, yeah you might try to run to the 3rd and realized you should have stayed at the 2nd, next thing you know you only got 2 off by 10:30. i hope vitran will never try to be like R&L because in their case it is not profitable, but dont get too cocky because fedx (or any other carrier) can do the same as R&L

    Fed Ex has to realize receiving departments don’t stop everything for ltl companies like they do for package deliveries!!

    I agree but I would say the fed-ex guys contributing are long time LTL guys and realize this.... there are very few FX delivery guys that grace this forum......Now Back to Sasi

    Dear Westdriver, BFD !!! None of that adds up when you sitting home.We talk to your guys on the street and we know that 2 or 3 days a week don't cut it.You may be one of the guys with some time in that you work every day but don't act like everything is tits at Fed Ex.

    Hey Brace, I just want to chime in here and also add that we get paid to fart from clock in to clock out. If he (westdriver) accidentally farts on his lunch break then really he didn't get paid for that fart.:biglaugh:

    That is a great observation...At least we get paid to fart on our lunch break..:biglaugh: Anyone who gloats in this economy, and tells everyone how good they have, and how bad everyone else has it, is setting their self up for a fall.:popcorn: Lets all just watch...
