Heavy lifting – FedEx Freight Direct

Heavy lifting – FedEx Freight Direct

Marek Różycki (Last Mile Experts) and I preview our seminar and workshop at Parcel+Post Expo this year, including:

  • The advantage of being first PUDO or locker network

  • What is holding back the development of some PUDO networks

Dean Maciuba, Director of Consulting Services at Logistics Trends & Insights, joins me to discuss the world of heavy parcel delivery, with a focus on FedEx Freight Direct:

  • What is FedEx Freight Direct? What sort of vehicles are being used for delivery of heavy or bulky parcels?

  • Size and weight limits compared to FedEx’s standard Ground and Express limits

  • One person delivery or two person delivery?

  • Premium delivery services

  • What kind of consumer goods are being shipped?

  • Competitors in this market

  • What’s driving the need for residential delivery of heavy parcels or freight?

  • Wayfair’s intentions in delivery… including its own logistics network
