    Default ABF ships nonunion FedEx to Teamster Members

    Yep, this is absolutey true!! You can order from the company store and have ABF drivers deliver to your local terminal but now there is a fee for that (didn't used to be)!

    "ABF Teamsters win company points for safe driving, etc. They can redeem these points for ABF logo shirts, jackets, toy trucks, etc. Sad to say, ABF management uses nonunion FedEx instead of Teamsters at UPS to deliver.

    I believe Newpenn does the same thing on there safety awards program..[have never used it yet] there is a message at the bottom of the page that says Fed_ex will not deliver to a PO box..

    I remember when we were on strike at Red Star the first week a FedEx package car pulled in the parking lot and we started shaking it trying to tip it over. Our TM came running out telling us he was bringing our checks......dude caught a break.... Lol......

    From my experience if its something breakable I would not want it shipped by a freight company.

    I think that freight is handled much better than UPS or fed-ex parcel.. We have many shipments that could have gone parcel but was shipped freight and was palatalized.. even though it was more expensive with us..
