    3 Ways FedEx Corporation and United Parcel Service Inc. Businesses Are Changing - Motley Fool

    The big three changes since the last recession are:
    • A strong increase in business-to-consumer, or B2C, e-commerce-based package deliveries as online shopping increases in popularity
    • Customers increasingly prefer cheaper, less time sensitive deliveries over faster, more expensive options.
    • Increasing protectionist trade policies by governments worldwide are causing growth in global trade (trade between countries) to lag domestic GDP growth. This is not great news for transportation companies.
