Why does UPS and Fedex hand shit off to the USPS now?

    What the fuck? I was waiting for a package and UPS could have just delivered it right to my home today but for some fucking reason they hand it off to the post office across town and now I have to wait another day for my stuff.
    Why?? Seems inefficient to me. :fil:

    because USPS is better at local deliveries than they are so they can do the terminal delivery cheaper.

    Just seems like this is a recent development. I've been noticing it more and more lately.
    I guess it's a good thing in the long run because the post office was in trouble financially.

    they've been doing it here for at least a year now. the P.O. delivers 7 days a week now. i think much of this happened so USPS could get Amazon shipment money.

    It's UPS Sure Post. FedEx has a similar Smart Post service.

    Bulk shippers get better rates.

    i guess they have a package size limit: small boxes come by USPS and the larger stuff by UPS or Fedex.

    I mentioned this a few times but I picked up a 7 zone heated shirt last year and love it. They have hook ups to use it with the 12v system on a bike as well. It woulda been great during my riding days.

    I received packages 2 Sundays in a row, that were slated for Monday. No complaints. Ordered thru Amazon, delivered thru who gives a fuck. Got my toy a day early, and a day off.:)

    So you're saying if DT wants ups or fedex to deliver he needs to order his big black dildos in bulk? :scratch:

    Can't be. Even here they have quite a few giant black dildoes working for them.
