Companies and corporations seem to have taken it upon themselves to transfer wealth from "the rich Americans" to everyone else on the planet, as a humanitarian gesture.United States Procrastination Service
I have ordered things from China that are much cheaper to ship from there to America than it is to ship something within America. Sometimes shipping is free, sometimes it is only a few dollars.
Every other country I have bought from costs more. Even shipping from Canada is not cheap. One Canadian company I buy from takes their product across the border themselves to Washington then ship it from there for American orders to save on shipping costs. They are located in southern British Columbia, 3 miles from the border.
Kinda.For those that do not know, Fedex does not own their own trucks whether they are semis or delivery vans. They are owner operators. The semis trucks are owned by someone that leases to Fedex and hires the drivers. I think Fedex owns the trailers, containers, and chassises. The delivery trucks and vans are owned by the driver. The Fedex delivery drivers bid on their lanes. Fedex planes might be the same way, a company owns the planes and leases the to Fedex. I am not sure about Fedex planes. I believe DHL does the same thing with their trucks.
