Yes, seems correct to me.  One thing to note, at least until 
VERY recently, FedEx ground and FedEx
express were separate companies that shared web servers and 
shipping counters.  FedEx ground
used to be Roadway Package Systems.  For some reasons, FedEx 
did not integrate that company
after they bought them, might have been related to union 
seniority stuff or something.

But, apparently in just the last month or two, they have now 
started to integrate the two companies.

Anyway, you could sure write a letter to your state attorney 
general's office.  I have gotten surprising results when 
making complaints.  A couple years ago, Wagreens has  
deceptive yellow 2 for 1 labels in their OTC drug and 
vitamin shelves.  Well, they were NOT 2 for the price of one 
-- they were buy two, get half off on the 2nd bottle, only.  
A few months after filing a complaint with the state EG's 
office, there was an aritcle about it in the newspaper, and 
they changed the policy.  I assume other people also complained.
