Aging Wine

Is this the way to do it? No wonder shipping costs so much...shipment originated in Brockton and destination Brockton via CT?

Yes shipment is 2 cases of wine.

Didn't you have something similar happen last year. The package went from like Maine to Florida to Massachusetts? Or did I just make that up?

Nope package shipped from FL to MA and all way back to FL before coming back to MA. Way to go FEDEX!

Everything is screwed up in December. They deal with twice the volume so that means 10 times the screw ups. I went to check my mailbox that's at a UPS store yesterday. If you want someone west of the Mississippi to receive a package before Christmas, you've already missed the recommended ship date.

Since they explicitly say "From Dec 1 - Dec 31, our guaranteed delivery estimates do not apply", they should then be decreasing their prices. Less service should come at a decreased cost.

Shortest distance between Brockton (main distribution & receiving) and W. Bridgewater (FEDEX Home) is via Willington CT.
