    As I read some of these posts fdx vs ups can anyone tell me the difference, besides the color of our uniforms what does one do different from the other. Yet Fred is always looking for something?

    Do you like Coke or Pepsi, AT&T or Verizon, Target or Walmart? Kinda the same thing, they act like they hate each other but what they both hate is a third company coming in, think DHL. Each have their own business challenges based off the other, when a third comes in it screws up both companies.

    right. So both companies have spread out in the hopes of providing the greatest variety of services to its customers. And when you look at it from that perspective, which company is offering the most comprehensive shipping option for the shipper with ever changing needs?

    That is a well-know and true aspect of stock analysis.
    If you own stock in an industry dominated by two major competitors and a third company emerges are comes in, sell you stock and go into another industry.

    I know all the Fedex guys and girls in my area, most of them are hard workers who go to work every day for an hourly wage just like I do. I have more in common with them than I do with UPS management.

    Actually, we did not have the planes.

    Fed Ex created the NDA market and UPS followed.

    Is this why UPS corporate refuses to use a contractor work force and thus get the "level playing field" they always claim to want?

    Nope it's because they don't want freaky looking mothertruckers working in the brown uniforms making the public wonder if that guy just got out of jail. I've got thirty pick ups that hate FedEx. Lol

    Please. We were delivering. I know I was out past 8pm. Was so tired by the end of it all could barely nibble on the Christmas Eve spread the family had, sipped some coffee, and just watched tv.
