Makes sense!Yes, we are starting to use Fedex more and eventually will likely shift all shipments to Fedex. UPS is crushing us with rate increases and Fedex is a little better. With free shipping representing almost all orders and orders being smaller and smaller (many more 1 item orders), all of our margin is going to UPS for shipping and return shipping.
Will do. So far they have been good and no complaints. They do offer a similar managing of packages like usps did.
I have generally viewed all of these debates like people debating the merits of Bud Light versus Miller Lite.
Got my order delivered by Fedex today. Woke up to a text message this morning at 6 AM saying it was out for delivery and got a prompt email when it was dropped off in front of my door around 10:30.

10/10, but maybe being woken up at 6 AM isn't the greatest hahaha
This seems like an odd line to take after both your recent actions and the thoughtful interview with Simon. I don't think Mr. Six even so much as suggested that he'd take his business elsewhere if you stuck with FedEx; he just said that when he has the choice he chooses UPS, to support a unionized workforce. That seems like a totally reasonable thing to inform one's choice, when choosing between suppliers of what, to the user, is basically commodity-like. (To my mind it's reasonable even when it's not commodity-like, but especially so in that case.) It's not commodity-like in your case if the rates really are that different. But you've already shown that you're willing to let your principles influence your business, so why is this where you bring out "everything must be a battle"?none of our suppliers are union not has it ever been a factor in how we decide who we work with or support.
It’s just surprising to see this come up and I’m wondering what’s next? If FedEx vs UPS for FREE shipping is a subject of political battle (welcome to America 2021, everything must be a battle), then what’s next? Which bottled water do we buy in the office? Is it union?
idk man. I respect anyone setting their own parameters for how they spend their money, so I understand and i guess some customers will decide not to buy from us because Fedex? But I’m just wondering if there’s a point where it gets too much. Do you ask your cheese shop if their dairy supplier is union or ? What about their transportation provider?
