FedEx wastes resources and money to slow packages for no reason.
Update added by user Jun 13, 2015
Correction: It took them 2 days to transfer the package to the US Postal system, not 3.
Original review posted by user Jun 13, 2015
Seller shipped package from Colorado to Portland. OR.
In two days it arrived at Troutdale, OR which is 11.6 miles from my front door.
It then was shipped to Kent, WA which is 160 miles from my front door.
Then it took them 3 days to transfer it to the US Postal System in Portland OR.
That results in over 320 extra miles and 7 extra days for delivery. Why? To extort more money out of both seller and buyer. But at what cost to resources? And what damage to their reputation?
People claim some dumb excuses to defend this, but there is absolutely NO rationale that makes this alright on any level. Go ahead and try. Explain how logistics is improved by sending the package almost to its destination then sending off to an entirely different state. Explain how the seller paid to have it arrive by a certain date, so it is best to hold it so it doesn't get there early. Give me one of those excuses how the seller paid the cheapest rate so it makes total sense to add an extra 320 miles on to save money. I'll wait while you lie to yourself.
