    Those polls are strange. We are the most admired in our category but not over FedEx overall? Ok, that doesn't make since. I do approve of Apple coming in first place. I'm a Mac Freak myself. :)

    I don't know how FedEx can be an "admired company"
    They have been cheating the system by calling their drivers "contractors" and now are being investigated by the IRS and depriving the drivers of benefits we take for granted at UPS
    At least UPS does it the right way, we should be a lot higher

    Fedex is considered an airline.

    If you click on FedEx on the Fortune site
    you see this

    Rank in Delivery and Logistics: 2

    No mention of an airline
    UPS has a much larger and respected airfleet
