can't you TAKE the packages to fedex? i thought that the stipulations that
you described only pertained fedex PICKING THEM UP. if that is so, then
while it might well be a collossal hassle, it would be better than being
high & dry with your customer base. even assuming these packages were
fairly bulky, you could rent a u-haul for just a few dollars per day
compared to what you are losing the way things are without such an effort.
just something to think about. & i realize that it doesn't mean a thing if
i am wrong in the first place.
