Why does FedEx (and to a lesser extent, UPS) take so long to ship packages that take the USPS about half the time?
For instance, I have a package that is in my home state, relatively close by, and the projected arrival date for it is in 3 days.
UPS is much the same; shipping times are often a week or more after the items has shipped. (These are not overseas packages.)
However, the USPS never takes more than 3 or 4 days, at least within the contiguous United States.
