My first thought is about how obscene that is!
So many planes flying in just two days solely for fedex deliveries... and that's just the states!

This is a pretty cool illustration. At the time when I was in the shipping industry FedEx was unique in all their overvnight stuff was routed to Louisville, KY and then reshipped. I think You don't exactly see that in the illustration due to a change in their business model that now ships non-overnight freight.

Jeremy: the music is "Going To California" by Led Zeppelin. I'm not sure who did this particular cover or where it's from though.
