  Roadway Package System, Inc., Case 31-RC-7267
Roadway I, 288 NLRB at 198, the Board stated that the drivers “bear few of the risks and enjoy little of the opportunities for gain associated with an entrepreneurial enterprise” and Roadway had “substantial control over the manner and means” of performance by their drivers.
Roadway pays the drivers and they are responsible for the withholding and the payment of their own Federal, state, and local taxes.
Roadway stresses that two items in the 1994 Agreement—the driver’s proprietary interest in his service area and his right to sell all or part of his area to the “highest bidder”—allow the drivers to influence their profits like entrepreneurs.

 Patent 4832204: Package handling and sorting system
While systems, and related hardware, have been developed for the cost effective handling of most types of freight, the transportation of smaller items of freight, particularly small packages, that is, those weighing about one hundred pounds or less, remains a vexing problem.
In the package handling system contemplated by the invention, upon initial receipt at the origin terminal 22, a package 38 is placed on a conveyor belt where it is subjected to a laser scan of the barcode label 30 to determine the package's identification number.
When a particular package is carried to a point adjacent to a chute 50 corresponding to its destination area, a solenoid operated tip device 52 is activated, causing the tray 48 to tip as shown at 54, discharging the package 38 into the chute 50.

 United Parcel Service - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For example, a parcel being shipped from Wilmington, NC would be picked up by a driver and taken to the 23rd street center, where it would be loaded on a trailer that is sent to Raleigh, NC.
At Raleigh, this package joins packages from all over the state, and is forwarded to the next point along its way — let's say Chicago.
Once the package is in Chicago, it would be sorted and forwarded to the appropriate delivery center where it would be loaded onto a package car and delivered.

The transportation industry has been afforded a tremendous opportunity to better serve its customers.  The purpose of these guidelines is to assist transportation agencies in establishing this customer service in the best possible manner.  The Coalition and its member organizations strongly recommend that implementers carefully review and consider these guidelines in their implementation planning.
In examining the addition of optional content, system implementers should be careful to design a system that complements — rather than diminishes — the impact of the basic content services.
Guideline : 511 systems should be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  It is recognized that systems will not always be “operated” 24/7.  In instances when the system is providing static, pre-recorded messages, systems should inform the caller that it is outside normal operating hours.

The district court denied a motion by defendant FedEx Ground Package System, Inc. ("FedEx"), to compel arbitration of two claims contained in a complaint filed against it by plaintiffs Gary Cummings, James Bittle, and Sean Steiner.

FedEx acknowledges that it is the same corporate entity as Roadway Package System and that the arbitration clause in Roadway is substantively identical to the one at issue in this case.

 FedEx RLA Scheme Grounded
With less than 1 percent of FedEx Ground’s packages traveling by air, NLRB Region 29 Director Alvin Blyer noted that the subsidiary does not perform services principally for the air carrier, nor are its operations an integral part of the FedEx transportation system.
Accordingly, he found that “FedEx Ground is clearly an employer subject to the NLRA [National Labor Relations Act], and that it is unnecessary to refer this jurisdictional question to the NMB [National Mediation Board],” which has oversight under the Railway Labor Act (RLA).
Specifically, the NLRB ruled that all full-time and part-time package handlers, quality assurance clerks, check-in clerks and data-entry clerks at the employer’s Maspeth, New York, facility constitute a bargaining unit under the NLRA.
