I find this very hard to believe. Sounds like their costs go up, but that doesn't mean their profit decreases. Otherwise, FedEx would want less business? That is bizarre.
They plan to run at full capacity for the majority of the time. There are times when they are over capacity, which results in them having to purchase transportation, workers, etc. outside of normal operating budgets.
