FedEx seems to be able to profitably deliver packages to "remote areas".

I think you'll find that even FedEx has 'loss leaders'

Probably. Is this somehow *helping* your argument?

No. But it wasn't meant to. I'm just pointing out an inconsistancy as earlier you said

So quite *probably* you do accept that you are 'overcharged' by FedEx on their more profitable routes to compensate for their unprofitable ones.

FedEx may find that the loss they take on package delivery to bumblefuck, montana is more than made up for by the increased business they get from a large-scale customers who ship tons of stuff on highly profitable routes, but *require* the occaisional package deliver to the middle of nowhere, and therefore will take their entire business elsewhere if a vendor will not deliver there.

How is this inconsistent?

If I am subsidizing FedEx delivery, and I get sick of it, I can go find another delivery service that only delivers where I want it. I'm not *forced* to subsidize it.

Yeah, good luck with that.

Although off course, what am I thinking, you'll just use the national mail service.
