FedEx Smartpost, STUPID BEYOND BELIEF

Sorry, I just need to vent. I ordered something from Bass Pro Shops in Springfield Mo which is 60 miles south of me, (didn't have time to drive down and pick it up). BPS shipped it FedEx Smartpost. Normally I get it the next day regular FedEx. It left Springfield, went 20 miles west to Strafford, went to Kansas City, then to Champaign IL, then to Earth City, Mo, then back to Springfield and is supposed to be on it's way to my Post Office to be delivered tomorrow. 7 days to be delivered 60 miles. Ain't no damn wonder shipping is so expensive nowadays.

There is rumor that FedEx and UPS might merge. The new company will be named FedUp.

I have that quite frequently in our business. Equipment or materials will go right past our area which is about 6 miles from a N-S Interstate, and about 12 miles from an E-W Interstate to be delivered from either another state or a point in an opposite direction from original shipping point.

It is all about their distribution network and/or their arrangements with other parties.

Welcome to the new era of not much sense in business, much like our U.S. Postal system delivering packages for Amazon on Sundays.

Several times we have had Sunday deliveries. Some things I was happy to see, then others I thought "A Sunday delivery for something this unimportant? What a waste of resources and money."

In my city, FedEx is the absolute WORST way to ship! They attempt one delivery & then your package goes to their warehouse in the NE (near airport). That is 32 km away & a 40 min drive in traffic!

I order a lot of stuff from Walmart.com and FedEx managed to ship my package from Fort Worth to Houston and then back to Fort Worth to be delivered on the 16th, if they didn’t mess with the shipping it would have been received on the 13th. I was following it on the tracking info site.

Just a bit of an update of sorts.

jaNice orders materials and gifts for her Make a Difference Day event from Amazon, this year she had items arriving in multiple shipments. Yesterday (Sunday) a local USPS delivery person arrives at the apartment with an Amazon delivery..............................inside the package......... 2-spoons.
