FedEx delivers millions of packages everyday around the World. They probably have the most efficient routing system for those packages. I remember reading sometime ago that they (or was it UPS?) set up the delivery route for trucks to minimize left turns to make them more efficient.
With all that sophisticated system, I don’t know what happened to this package that I received recently. It came from China into Anchorage, AK where it was cleared by customs. Then it flew to Newark, NJ and unexpectedly took a wrong turn and went off to Oakland, CA before making it to Connecticut via Memphis, TN. I am not sure why FedEx added a cross-country trip in the package’s routing. I have to wonder if one of my friends worked on the development of this routing software.
