In my area of Los Angeles, small packages sent FedEx are handed off to USPS for delivery. Every time my package has has a "delivery exception" which amounts to the USPS just not delivering it.
Bacause all I have is the FedEX tracking # to local PO can not track the package. Once I was able to catch the USPS driver. He showed me the back if this truck, with so shelves, and packages just thrown in a pile. He said all he has to go on for delivery is his memory of what is on his truck!
FedEx - what are you thinking doing business with a company with such a substandard system. I have high praise for USPS in delivering regular mail, but they have totally dropped the ball when it come to their arrangement with FedEX.
