Does FedEx Always Deliver So Late?
Yesterday I was waiting for FedEx. I had two packages coming from something that I ordered. When tracking them it said that they were on the truck that was out for delivery. Well, I waited ALL DAY. Would you believe my stuff didn't come till 8:30PM? Has anyone else ever gotten a delivery that late from FedEx? I was really annoyed to say the least.

But today, I also got a delivery from FedEx. Yes, it was one I was expecting. They showed up before noon. Not even an hour later I had an email from them saying their system shows it was delivered and if there's a problem to contact them. Talk about a difference between night and day, huh?

So I guess if you are ever waiting on a FedEx guy...don't go to bed too early! LOL!

I think it just depends on the sender and what service they use. I had UPS come to my door at 8pm a few times, I didnt even think they were out that late!!

I've had them come around 9pm before-as long as they're bringing me something they could come at midnight!

My trucks"my" hehe are so random. I might see them early in the morning or late in the evening most of the time it is around 5 though.

I've gotten late packages from Fed-Ex also. My crazy Fed-Ex person usually comes twice a day - I don't know why she doesn't bring it all at one time. The last time she brought packages an hour apart that the tracking showed were put on the truck at the same time.

I see UPS and Fedex trucks out at like 9pm. They make good $$ but they have LONG hours somedays.

Of all days, the day on which one has not laughed is the one most surely wasted.

Mrs
fed ex comes when they want to, and around here they have been known to sign them out the night before and deliver the next day so the record looks good- I get disgusted because it will say delivered at night then the next day knock knock and wow, this says I got it last night..alot of business they get coming to me from work I do and its a shame they do this-
But to answer they can deliver any time day or night, I have had packages at 6 am, and as late as 10 pm and on weekends and Sunday

They don't load their trucks or decide when to deliver them...they are loaded the night/morning before in the order in which the driver is to deliver them.Sometimes the driver may have a very heavy load...thats what your late delivery sounds like.I wouldn't care what time they came myself as long as they did....lol.I seldom get to see one stop at my house .
