Hub-and-Spoke, man

Yesterday, we mailed a FedEx package to an address six blocks away. FedEx picked it up, took it to Dulles, VA (understandable), FLEW IT TO MEMPHIS, TN, flew it BACK the same night, and delivered it the very next morning.


Our government tax dollars at work?
FedEx is a flat rate... so really its private enterprise (potentially) being wasteful.
Fed Ex is controlled by Wal-Mart. It's all about the supply chain. That is what Thomas Friedman told me last time I saw him in NYC anyway.
