The various costs of shipping services by either UPS or FedEx average out to be about the same, but their areas of value differ. Because UPS specializes in ground delivery and has five times the number of ground vehicles as FedEx, its ground delivery prices are less expensive than FedEx. However, FedEx has twice as many jets as UPS, which allows them to charge considerably less for international or express deliveries. Many companies decline to use one carrier on an exclusive basis because both offer specific services that can be beneficial. It’s common for businesses to use UPS for local deliveries and FedEx for international or overnight deliveries.

    Is there a significan price differential for domestic packages...you say that UPS is more reliable...but does that come at a price?
