FedEx ground is made fun of by most. I even do it. It could be rare but if you find the right contractor you can make some coin. Here is my final number with the last paycheck of 2022.
Not bad to pretend to be a FedEx driver. And I sit over 5 hours a night waiting on my loads.

That’s excellent. If I remember right you’re down in Tennessee? What is your nightly run if you don’t mind my asking?
JoeyJunk, Flat Earth Trucker, jtaran06 and 1 other person Thank this.
West KY. Run out the Evansville hub. I run a Walmart drop and hook then wait for my linehaul. Then I go to Greenwood Indiana (indy) and wait some more then back to Evansville.Texas_hwy_287, JoeyJunk and motocross25 Thank this.
It's not really Fedex per say. Each contractor can pay what and how they want. It's far from as good as UPS especially the benefits. If Fedex would let contractors buy into their insurance it would be a lot better. I think their family plan is $180 a month. But they don't allow that. Some contractors still pay garbage and some pay pretty decent. I don't need the benefits as my wife has good insurance. This is the most laid back easiest job I ever had in trucking so that's what keeps me here.silverspur, jmz, brtecson and 6 others Thank this.

That tax you paid is sickening. One man’s contribution shouldn’t be that much. Reminds me of my oilfield paychecks. Everyone always talked about how much I was making without realizing I was paying 1/2-3/4 of what they grossed per year just in taxes.
