FedEx for the Holidays
Christmas is just about here and people are scurrying to get their holiday gifts and packages out so they arrive to their destinations on time. Thanks to Mom Central, I learned a little bit more about shipping via FedEx. As a blogger, I received MANY packages! FedEx is one of the businesses that delivers on a fairly regular basis. I love that when it’s raining outside, they cover my package in plastic. I also like that most of the time, they knock on my door to let me know a package has arrived.
I had no idea that FedEx Ground costs 10% less than UPS Ground, nor did I know that the new FedEx Office Print & Ship Centers offer customized calendars, cards, and stationery in addition to packing tips and assistance. Wow! I can honestly say that if I am mailing something important, I use FedEx as one of my shipping options (even over the Post Office). I also love that you can track the package. You can find out when it made it out of the shipping center, the estimated delivery date, and confirmation of delivery to the sent destination. You can compare rates on FedEx.com if you are unsure of how FedEx, UPS, and USPS compare.
Happy Shipping Everyone!
