      Why do they ship oonly at night? Wouldn't also shipping at day be more efficient instead of having machines and planes waiting for the night?

    I work with DHL getting these planes sent out, we have a contract with Amazon and service many of their planes as well as they utilize our sorting machine until they establish a hub of their own. I really admire DHL's grand scale they are enormous and really know what they are doing.
    Also we throw your packages even if they say fragile... :) With our time crunch there isn't enough time to softly package each safely.

    Not all impressed with FedEx though, twice i have ordered from the US to Sweden and both times they sent the package back since they could not get a hold of me, that is when you leave the package at the local handout place so i will get a sms or slip in the mail box to pick it up, ended up cancelling the order since i can't afford keep paying $46 in shipment over and over.

    So very wasteful of fuel and resources... Not to mention terrible effects on pollution and climate. If we were just content with packages taking 3 days instead of 2, we could cut fuel by 40%! Do we really need this? Is it worth it, to kill thousands of people with pollutions and *millions* via the effects of climate change in a few decades? Just to have your crap from Amazon delivered in 2 days instead of 3?

    Nice video, but FALSE! The FedEx hub in Indianapolis Indiana is actually the 2nd biggest hub. Infact, the Indianapolis hub is projected to expand beyond the capacity of the hub in Memphis, because Indiana is actually the location that's ideally located. Indiana is coined "The Crossroads Of America" because of the the central location and the plethora of major US highways that intersect through the state.

      They do have their own fleet of semi-trucks, although I haven't yet seen how Amazon delivers packages to their final destination. I do know that Amazon's air hub is in Cincinnati, and that they're currently renting DHL's warehouse there during the daytime.

    In some countries like France, which has one, if not the most developped rail system in the world, the overnight shipping is done entirely by Train. The number of planes used is ridiculously low, since why would you use a super expensive aircraft when you can use a modified TGV (Train à Grande Vitesse, High Speed Train) to deliver the packages maybe a few hours later, but using nothing like a plane in terms of money ?

    5:38 That was actually Fedex's original business model. It wasn't until the 90s or early 2000s that ALL domestic packages didn't go through Memphis. It actually wasn't all that inefficient when you realize planes were going in those directions anyway. It was only because sheer volume demanded it that they come up with feeder hubs. And by the way, Amazon (and Google) are the evil empire.

    Shouldn't the answer to this very simple question be: The goods are placed on a ship, and the ship travels overnight across the sea to it's destination. Surely, the answer is in the question. If it takes longer, then it is NOT overnight shipping.
