    This was just as of yesterday, the day before they didn’t ask me to. But since the last bomb went off at FedEx, I’m guessing it hit close to home.

    Are shipping company employees bomb techs now? How would they know what a bomb looks like vs a pile of replacement electronic stuff? Or legit items on top of a bomb that likely doesn't look like what Hollywood has taught people what a bomb looks like. More feel good policy that doesn't actually make anyone safer, and invades peoples privacy.

    My thought was why put your employees in that potential danger of it going off upon opening it.

    Too many packages make theie way through the shipping channels...not practical to personally inspect each one. What about all the personal accounts where they pick up mass packages??

    I think is too far left...you can’t prevent it all.

    Shipping just went up. What a hassle.
    I never ship,ups. Hate ups. Those guys that deliver just pull up anywhere they want and stop. Plus the shorts look gay.

    You can never stop some brain defect loser.
    All they did was cause the 99.99999999% normal people a big hassle!!!

    All the shipping stores will now double their work, because now we all have to wait in line while they inspect and seal everything.

    Real punishment for POS criminals will help a llittle, but a brain defect is a brain defect and don't care about them self or us!!!

    I have now experienced this. My Headers were supposed to arrive today, instead they were sent 30+ miles away, they had been at my local fedex warehouse, to be inspected in light of the mail bomber. When I told the lady on the phone that I don’t make a habit out of shipping bombs she lost her poo, “Oh no! Please don’t say those words” WTF engine drop in is another day away now... oh well the weather up here took a turn for the worse anyway.

    We ship out Hundreds of Packages every day! I'm assuming they aren't looking at Commercial Shippers

    Our shipments generally weigh several thousand pounds. The guys who pick the order have anywhere from 25 to 40+ years with the company. When they get done, I go out to make sure the orders is filled right and packaged properly. I've seen orders that weigh as much as 15,000 pounds. There is no place to hide anything else in our orders.
