    FedEx Takes on UPS With Long-Range China Jets - Bloomberg

    FedEx Corp. handles China deliveries with a local partner bought for $400 million and uses long-range freighters to fly to the U.S. nonstop. United Parcel Service Inc. seeks to build its own network and operates bigger jets.

    The prize for FedEx, operator of the largest cargo airline, and UPS, No. 1 in package deliveries, is wider access to the world’s fastest-growing major economy. China’s 9.6 percent annual expansion in gross domestic product is more than three times the pace in the U.S.
