Why is it that UPS and the Post Office can ring your doorbell to alert you to the fact that there is a delivery , yet FedEx cannot ? UPS and the Post Office also will put packages in plastic bags if there is inclement weather.
I Just received a delivery (12/12/16) from FedEx and had no idea the box was sitting outside in the torrential rain. I was home, up and ready for the delivery. If I hadn't looked out at 8 AM this morning, I still wouldn't know the package was there. This is not the first time I've had this problem with FedEx and not the first state I've lived in where I've had this problem.
So it would seem it's not just a local problem. I've had this experience at least five times with FedEx. Once, a package sat outside all night long, because the FedEx guy we had insisted on delivering to a door that is not one of the two main doors of the house, though there is a doorbell, if he had chose to ring it.
Today's delivery was the second in two weeks that FedEx left sitting in the rain unprotected, without ringing the bell to notify me the package was there. Here's some pictures of the condition of the box that was delivered today.
