FedEx Routing : Are They Lost The Route In Finding A Better Route?

If any business want to use FedEx to ship products so that they can reach customers faster, must think again.

A box was left at FedEx office in Richardson that is destined for Irving TX. The distance between the FedEx office where the package was left and the destination is about 25 miles.

The package has already moved around 80 miles and it is still 15 miles short of the destination after about 90 hours since the package was left at FedEx office (including the weekend). Just 6 hours shy of 4 full days ( or 2 full days leaving weekend) to reach from Richardson TX to Irving TX, a mere 25 mile distance.

See how the packet moved from various cities.

Not sure how to read the status notification. It says at 9.21PM it left the FedEx facility in Garland and in about 6 minutes it reached Fort Worth facility. Something is very spooky here. There is no way, a package can be moved between Garland TX and Fort Worth TX in 6 minutes.  The distance between Garland and Fort Worth TX must be at least 50 miles ( if you consider the FedEx facilities are on the city boundaries in both of these cities).

So I guess it is not what it appears to be. Status notifications could be misleading within close cities and it doesn’t look any efficient within DFW.
