Most places such as UPS/DHL etc. let you pick up your package so long as it's not on the truck for delivery. But not FedEx.
I have a package that says it's at a FedEx location 15 minutes from my home, but that it was slated to be delivered two days later. I called asking if I could go pick it up. I spoke with a customer service rep who I could barely understand thanks to a very thick accent. When I was finally transferred to a rep who I could understand better, they tried to claim that the package wasn't FedEx's and it was USPS's.
Yet, on their site, with their tracking number, it shows that it is clearly located at a FedEx location. They wouldn't allow me to pick it up because they "didn't have a reception area" and that it was USPS's problem, so I should contact them. Clearly inconvenient and very poor quality delivery system.
Product or Service Mentioned: Fedex Delivery Service.
Reason of review: Problem with delivery.
Preferred solution: Allow me to pick up my package that is 15 minutes from my home, instead of waiting almost 3 days for it to be delivered!.
I didn't like: Lying to assure customers packages will be delivered, Ineffective systems, Delivery pratices, Customer service rep has heavy accent, Speaking over customer.
