I got a letter today from FeEx saying the FedEx advantage discount alliance program with the potters council and the American Ceramic Society has ended. Can anyone speak to this benifit being restarted again?

I called them yesterday. Everything is continuing. The contract was renewed to my understanding. I was told Fedex is continuing the program..by Fedex customer service.

For those currently signed up with the FedEx program you can continue with them. 

Potters Council will be announcing a new shipping program soon and our partnership will be with UPS. The membership will be really excited about this cost savings program.

I'm stoked as I do most of my pottery shipping with UPS.Two huge shipments this week alone went out via UPS

They have better service where I live and seem to break less than FedEx ground.

I like fedex for the less than a truckload program? pallets are a good way to ship. I think there may be an alternate shipper once things get developed.

I am still using my Fedex account which they are still honoring.

I am still getting sweet discounts for shipping.
