FedEx Ground contractors sound the alarm on ‘enormous financial distress’ impacting deliveries
Route Consultant founder and president Spencer Patton explains how FedEx Ground’s delivery network is at risk of collapse due to inflationary pressures.
FedEx Corp has severed its relationship with one of its largest delivery contractors effective immediately.
The package delivery company filed suit, asking a federal judge to stop the contractor from spreading misinformation about its business for financial gain.
Spencer Patton has 225 FedEx Ground routes in 10 states as well as businesses that offer services to the roughly 6,000 U.S. contractors that transport and deliver packages for that unit.
Patton for weeks has said that up to 35% of FedEx Ground delivery providers are at risk of financial failure. He urged its leaders to improve compensation and has been rallying "peers to his cause."
