The other day I struck up a conversation with my FedEx driver and found out some information about their delivery stops and packages they deal with.Out of curiosity I wanted to know just the amount of volume each driver faces daily. As usual, he was busy and in a rush but provided me glimpse into their delivery world.
Below is paraphrase of our conversation:
Some drivers can have 60 stops a day delivering 200 packages. Most of these are business
Residential drivers can have 90 stops a day delivering only 100 packages. The good part of this is they just drop and go, no signature required. But, they usually deal with the heavier packages and a lot of stopping.
Amazon growth has not made them busier. Loads are just about the same.
Really busy days can reach up to 300 packages daily and they still have to fit that into an 8 hour time period
So there you go, an example of what your FedEx delivery person faces on a delivery route daily.
