I still fail to see why I would choose an organiztion with handles hundreds
of times more packages, most weighing less and being less breakable than
mine, over one with the specialized equipment to move it. An air cargo
carrier with heavy-cargo equipment is still less likely to drop a pallet
off a pallet jack than an express shipper with a handtruck. That their
respective employees are equally lackadaisical doesn't mean all other
factors have been equalized.
Fedex != Fedex Freight
I have had fedex "heavyweight" boxes trashed, but have never had an
issue with Fedex Freight. They show up with a liftgate or box truck,
and a pallet jack. If your load is not palletized, they put it on
one in the truck.
I think Fedex Freight is a bit more in the "heavy moving" industry
than Fedex, agreed.
ps. Is this operational? :)
