FedEx is clueless

werehatrack thought this was worth mentioning said

I heard on the news that FedEx is getting ready to cut jobs and close locations because their parcel volume has fallen off, and their spokesman said that it was because people were just not buying as much for delivery.


They completely ignore the fact that shippers and recipients alike have been looking for any way to avoid them lately because their service just plain sucks. (Not that UPS, their principle competitor, is particularly stellar, but…)

But by all means blame external causes. Yup. Don’t fix anything because it’s not broke, and we know it’s not broke because we make sure we never actually hear any gripes.

Meanwhile, UPS reportedly will be boosting its rates 23% next year. I guess the guy at the top wants a new fleet of Veyrons or something.
