    UPS Vs. FedEx: Comparing Business Models and Strategies - Investopedia

    United Parcel Service, Inc. and FedEx Corporation are two leading delivery services companies and main competitors to each other, at least in the public eye. But to those following them closely, the two companies are actually quite different in their business models and strategies. While UPS is wildly known for its domestic ground package delivery, FedEx is mostly recognized for its worldwide air express freight. The two companies also differ in terms of their approaches to serving customers, how they have fared in the e-commerce environment and the different business structures unique to each company.

    Perhaps it is the fact he concentrates on revenue rather than profit by market segmentation.
    I expected it to be a bit more in depth in regards to "Business Model".

    Seems like an under grad paper who didn't dig quite deep enough into the numbers.
