This isn't the first time that I've seen FedEx or even UPS do this, but it puzzles me each time. I'm having my new Roscoe shipped from TPB out of Baton Rouge, 2-day delivery. Soooo... I check the tracking info and they're taking my axe from Baton Rouge to Memphis! WRONG WAY, BUDDY! BRING IT HERE!!! I know that Memphis is probably one of their main shipping/sorting hubs, but does it really make that much more sense to take it so far out of the way instead of just shooting it straight to the desination's sorting facility? Is it that much more cost effective for them to haul it to Memphis just to put it on a plane, instead of rolling a truck to Austin? I'm in the end it makes good business sense for FedEx to do things the way that they do. It just doesn't help my GAS relief to see my bass going the opposite way before it comes to me!
