FedEx began operations in April 1973. Currently, the company employs more than 140,000 workers globally, spanning over 220 countries and territories. According to the FedEx website, there are about 43,000 FedEx trucks around the world, totaling more than 2.7 million miles on the road in the United States every day.
Phoenix residents depend on FedEx deliveries for many different reasons, from business packages to certified documents. When traveling on Arizona roads and highways, it is not uncommon for motorists to pass a number of FedEx trucks.
FedEx drivers are trained to avoid any type of unsafe driving situation and are urged to adhere to the safety principles outlined by the company. Despite the companys best efforts, Arizona FedEx accidents are not uncommon.
Common Causes of FedEx Truck Accidents
FedEx truck accidents, like any other type of motor vehicle accident, could be caused by either human error or outside forces beyond the drivers control. Some of the most common driver errors that result in FedEx delivery truck crashes include:
- Failing to set the trucks parking brakes when making a delivery
- Failure to yield when merging back into traffic after making a delivery
- Backing up the FedEx truck after missing the desired delivery address
- Failure to obey traffic laws
- Inadequate training
- Operating a truck under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Fatigued drivers
- Failing to complete repairs or safety checks
Given the size discrepancy between a FedEx truck and the average passenger vehicle, these types of accidents usually result in major injuries and significant property damage.
Sometimes, outside forces can result in a serious FedEx truck accident. These factors can include:
- Bad roads
- Adverse weather conditions
- Poorly or improperly secured cargo
- Vehicle equipment failure
