As previously noted, FedEx is currently undergoing a nationwide transition to an “ISP” model and contract. Over the next 4 years, FedEx IC contractors will be gradually transitioning to this new contract according to the timeline FedEx has set forth. FedEx contractors who are unfamiliar with the new ISP contract will naturally have many questions about what this new contract will mean for their business. FedEx has put forth a comprehensive workbook which details the the new ISP Agreement and corresponding differences from the old contract.
FedEx announced last month that all contractors would be transitioning to the ISP model by 2020. At the time of the announcement, the details for the transition had not yet been disclosed. Those contractors who were not already operating under the ISP model were made aware that at some point over the next four years, they too would be given a new contract. While these contractors won’t know the details of their contracts until such time as they enter negotiations with FedEx, they now know when their transition window will take place.
Today FedEx announced that it will be rolling out the ISP model nationwide with the goal of converting all states by 2020. We’ll be keeping a close eye on things as FedEx moves forward in the process and will be posting updates as they become available.
If you’ve decided that investing in a FedEx delivery route is a sound option for your career and lifestyle, congratulations! You may have just made the most important financial decision of your life. However, there is still a lot of work to be done before you can begin profiting from this business model. For starters, you may need to secure financing for the routes.
Peak season in the FedEx world arrives with the holidays, and with pre-Black Friday shopping getting earlier every year and online shopping rates skyrocketing, peak season is lasting longer than ever. But is this busy season the best time to buy a FedEx route?
Because of high delivery volumes and the additional complications posed by factors such as winter weather, it’s generally advisable to wait until after peak season to purchase a new FedEx route. Here’s what you’ll gain by waiting for the post-holiday slow down to enter the marketplace.
If you drive for work, you don’t have the luxury of escaping the snow. Furthermore, as we speak, many parts of the country are experiencing snow and icy roads. Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how bad the roads are. Unless they’re closed, you still have to make your deliveries, and it’s best to be prepared for these conditions in advance.
Did you know that approximately 70 percent of the roads in the United States are located in snowy regions? A majority of these roads are driven by truckers, including shipping services. Snowy weather is responsible for 24 percent of weather-related vehicle crashes each year, attributing to 900 fatalities and more than 75,000 injuries.
The danger is very real, particularly for large vehicles, like trucks, that have unique needs during the winter. Even if you live in a warm state and drive mostly non-snowy routes, as a FedEx delivery truck driver, it’s essential that you learn how to handle the snowy conditions you’ll see throughout the country.
