      TIP: Use USPS for cheaper overnight shipping. USPS outsources their flying to FedEx for Overnight packages.

      Okay, good content and something I might subscribe to but you put a commercial that's two minutes in the middle and then break to a commercial and that's the end of the video. Peace out brother.

    I wanna know how the hell they sort the damn packages and lose so few...ive gotten a couple small components shipped overnight from England to northwest Florida and it blows my mind everytime that the little part im holding was literally an ocean away not a full day earlier. I could probably fart in a box and overnight it back to England and they'd still be to smell it by the time it arrived.

    As a trucking dispatcher, I work with UPS in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Seattle, Chicago, Columbus, Newark, and World Hub in Louisville. They ship their loads in less than 18 hours each time, and this requires communication between shipper, truck, dispatcher, and consignee. Also, here's a secret, a lot of domestic air shipments are actually shipped by truck. ;)

    Hello ladies and gentlemen, welcome aboard FedEx Airlines, I'm your captain, UPSSucks420. We'd like to thank you for flying with us. Please refer to the safety guide for the safety information that you will need in the case of an emergency. We will be arriving in North Korea in 5 hours and 34 minutes, where the weather is a very tense political climate. Now here is the safety video to fill you in on the operations during unlikely event of an emergency. Once again, thank you for flying FedEx Air and we hope you enjoy your flight.

    I worked at warehouses on and off for years. I've seen packages under 5 pounds, but were Saturday 9AMs, and they cost thousands. You can certainly get extremely quick shipping, but holy hell are you going to pay for it.
