FedEx is ridiculous. I ordered two items that were to arrive in two days; both shipped separately on the same day.
They were coming from Bethlehem, PA, going to Dover, DE. It's only about 120 miles. Instead of going south to DE, they went northeast to Newark, NJ, then for some unknown reason, to Memphis, TN, then back to Philadelphia, PA, before finally going to the FedEx center in New Castle, DE. Since they're still not out for delivery, it's looking unlikely I will get them when I was supposed to.
The amazing part is the packages being shipped all over the place. Instead of just sending them from Bethlehem to Philadelphia, about 60 miles, they went 70 miles out of the way to Newark, NJ. Philadelphia is closer to Bethlehem. Then throw in the ridiculous trip to Memphis, and I see that FedEx has some serious issues.
Instead of a 90 mile trip from origination to the FedEx delivery center in New Castle (another 30 miles from Philly), the packages traveled over 2,000 miles.
No wonder FedEx costs so much. Talk about a waste of fuel and time.
