FedEx has had a horrible reputation for the past year or two. I understand FedEx likes to overestimate their ability to have packages arrive "early", but they are rarely even on time. It's far more common that FedEx deliveries are delayed by a week, while they provide inaccurate status updates. I'm just saying, the items we purchase from DROP are not inexpensive. For the CONUS, it would be much better to simply use USPS or UPS over FedEx.
