First, I was told that FedEx will often delay shipments

For a trade show, we'd carefully plan the arrival day for
all our packages, so as to avoid extra "drayage" charges from
the convention hall's union, who would charge $150 *per day*
that anything had to be moved from the dock to your booth.
Size made no difference. FedEx once delivered a single
mailing tube one day early, and the union goons wanted
$150 for me to get it out of hock.
