Yes it is crap. FedX delivers your package to the Post Office. Then it takes another day or two for the Post Office to get it to you. The delivery date on the FedX web site is the date it is delivered to the Post Office when it is out of their hands not to you.
I live out in the country. My rural Post office is 2 miles down the road from me. The FedX truck comes by my house all the time but if the package was shipped Smart Post it is left 2 miles down the road and I get it a day later.
It is the shipper that chooses the shipment method so it is not completely FedX's problem. Sure Post might be good in some situations (not that I can think of one for customers) but it certainly is stupid in my situation. It is not the shippers problem it is FedX for creating it.
