Get The Details On FedEx Ground Routes
In case this is your first stop on the research train, let’s start with an overview of FedEx Ground.
FedEx Ground routes run Monday through Friday. Ground routes deliver primarily to commercial businesses and the packages tend to be heavier than residential packages and require larger trucks. Because deliveries occur to commercial locations, there is less seasonal variability in FedEx Ground routes and that can make planning your staff and resources simpler.
Historically, contractors could purchase just FedEx Ground routes. That’s no longer the case. FedEx Ground routes are now only one side of the FedEx pick-up and delivery (P&D) operation and FedEx requires Independent Service Providers (ISPs) to hold both FedEx Ground routes and Home Delivery routes in a designated territory. This is known as overlap.
The FedEx home delivery routes deliver to residential households and operate Tuesday through Saturday. These routes often have smaller to medium trucks and boxes. Additionally, you can expect high seasonal variability (with the holiday rush in November and December—known as Peak Season—accounting for a larger percentage of annual revenue).
Although you may hear of some contractors who still hold only FedEx Ground routes, FedEx requires all contractors to complete the transition to ISP (and have overlap in their territories) by Summer 2020.
