FedEx Freight | Today’s announcement April 5

There's zero chance of putting any package freight on rail. Transit time obligations would simply be impossible to meet.
Let's not forget... Economy FREIGHT consistently brings in more revenue per ship. Many customers will sacrifice speed for price, even just a dime or 2. THAT is the golden goose discovered from the whole priority/economy model. Again, MANY (not all) customers default to economy. Same is likely to apply to packages.
 
"Raj Subramaniam will serve as president and CEO of the combined organization [FedEx Corporation]."

"Effective April 16, 2023, John A. Smith will become president and CEO of U.S. and Canada ground operations at FedEx Express [Federal Express Corporation] and assume leadership of surface operations across the FedEx Express, FedEx Ground, and FedEx Freight businesses. Richard W. Smith will serve as president and CEO of airline and international at FedEx Express, overseeing all other regions and FedEx Logistics."

Ups does it every day

I made that statement too narrow. I meant any priority packages. It was too late to crawfish on it after 3 people responded.

But anyhow
