  • 12. It’s a struggle out there
    • UPS Oct. 23, 2008 announcement “Average daily U.S. domestic volume declined 3.4%, reflecting on-going weakness in the U.S. economy. Air products posted declines of 6.4% and ground volume decreased 2.8%.”
    • FedEx Dec 18, 2008 “Total combined average daily package volume in the FedEx Express and FedEx Ground segments was down 2% year over year, as the weak economy reduced demand for shipping services. FedEx Ground average daily package volume was down 1% year over year, as continued growth in the FedEx Home Delivery service was more than offset by a decline in commercial volume. Less-than-truckload (LTL) average daily shipments decreased 2% year over year, as market share gains were more than offset by the weakening U.S. economy.
  • 13. What's a shipper to do
    • Growth at both UPS and FedEx is, for all intents, non existent – They can’t afford to loose any customers
    • The DHL incremental business is not putting a dent into the lack of organic growth at UPS FedEx
    • The USPS can now be a player. Call them in.
    • Most shippers are in a “locked in” 3 year or 5 year – I’m in a contract mindset.
    • Everything is negotiable – so put your business out to bid.
    • An extra set of eyes looking at your invoices can and will help.
