      Very much enjoyed the video, but your logo seems dated, as in the 1980s.

      Really awesome video, gave me a very nice intro to how these companies work. I have just one suggestion, which is to write out #s / figures when saying each company has X number of planes, Y number of routes, etc. The visual will definitely help stick better, thanks!

    Hate to break it to you buddy but I live in Anchorage Alaska and I have NEVER gotten anything I ordered "over night" Amazon prime gets it here in 7 days if I'm lucky. USPS Express mail is 2 days and is crazy expensive

                                  I'm a trucker. When I delivered a trailer at ups in memphis at 4 am near the airport, there were people there working just like daytime, it was extremely busy, people constantly moving around, I have 10 seconds to dock otherwise I'm holding up traffic.

                                          I don't think UPS is very impressive at all. Literally every single package I've had shipped with them that had overnight shipping took at least 2 or more business days to arrive. Every... single... one. Then they don't even give an explanation as to why they were late nor offer you a refund for your shipping. There was even one particular time where I ordered a computer part that I really needed, and I chose overnight shipping. (I also placed my order in the morning, not at night the previous day.) Anyway, the nearest UPS hub to me is about an hour away, so I sat home waiting all day for this package to arrive, checking the truck location, etc, and the UPS truck got within .5 miles of my house before saying that there were severe weather conditions and turning around. The part that really annoys me is that there were no severe weather conditions; we had maybe 2mm of snow on the ground that day, with no ice, it wasn't currently snowing, and even USPS and FedEx were able to deliver, so why not UPS? It also didn't seem like it was a problem with the truck because they drove that thing all the way back to the hub, which is an hour away, like I said. Actually, while they were still .5 miles away, I tried to call UPS support to see if they could get in contact with the driver so I could drive down the road and pick up my package, but all she said to me was that there were severe weather conditions at hand and they couldn't get in contact with the driver. (Really? As if I couldn't read that exact same thing on my screen; that was literally the whole reason I called. Also, how can a huge shipping company not be able to contact their drivers?) I think it all just happened to be laziness. The driver probably got tired of delivering, even though it is his job, and just turned around. But the fact that I paid extra for a service that wasn't even delivered, with no compensation whatsoever, is just bad for business in my book. Now I use UPS as little as possible after this and many similar occurrences happened.

                                            You ran into some bad luck. The reason why management at UPS can't contact their drivers is because they actually have no way of contacting them. I mean they could contact the driver's supervisor who could relay the message, but management and driver supervisors hardly get in contact at all. Unless there is a conflict of some sort. "Severe weather" added to your bad luck obviously. Maybe your driver was a cover driver and was not familiar with the route he or she was assigned.
