I like Fedex.


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

FedEx rules !! :thumbs:

The brown company ... they are brown for a reason ....

eta:

UPS is a master in destroying or screwing up packages.

FedEx ... when it needs to be there ... it is ... and in good shape.

I've used Fedex for some very important packages (including visa docs) and have never had a problem.

I sent Christmas presents to various family members in Canada last year. Fedex has sent each of them brokerage notices for $20 each.

I checked the box that said bill the shipper (me) any brokerage/taxes. I have yet to see ANYWHERE on their site a list of what the brokerage fees will/should cost. Phoning them twice has resulted in nothing but being transferred from one department to the next.

i really wonder if the expensive rates of FEDEX will be a reason to be a trustworthy, reliable and safe of any packages that you will send in any part of the world.

I much prefer FedEx to either USPS or UPS. Especially UPS, which has a terrible reputation and deservedly so. It's not uncommon for UPS carriers to claim they attempted delivery when they didn't or make bone-headed moves, such as leaving expensive packages outside on the front porch (or in front of someone's apartment door), where anyone could potentially grab them.

FedEx is the best - especially dealing with international packages. They are so much better at getting items through customs so much faster than UPS. I ship packages every day at work and we have over 60 international customers that we ship to. FedEx has the best track record for us and their customer service is outstanding. When I have a problem with a package ie. that it was sent to a wrong address or wrong level of service, FedEx can take care of the package.

Last week, I shipped something UPS (the customer's request) and when the customer wanted to change the level of service, all I heard was "unfortunately once the package has left, we cannot change it." THAT sucked. You won't have that problem with FedEx.

Our company has quit accepting packages from DHL and TNT. THEY are nightmares! Every time I hear DHL - I cringe.

This is also a problem. UPS requires the customer's phone number but will sometimes leave a package on a door step that was clearly marked "Signature Required" or they will do the opposite - NOT leave it at the door and attempt another delivery - what an inconvenience for the customer. Nine times out of ten, if they called the phone number that I put in the system, they could have delivered it the same day! BROWN IS DOWN!

I never had any bad experience with FedEx. When i buy an item on line or send something important they aways seem to be on time.
