    "The UPS petition comes as the latest sign of friction in the complex relationship between the Postal Service and the private shipping sector. John Callan, managing director of the shipping consultancy Ursa Major Associates, noted that the USPS has for years been engaged in a form of "coopetition" with carriers like UPS and FedEx, which are among its largest customers and vendors, while at the same time rivals in the growing package delivery business."
