H2H ROUND-3: Delivery Reliability & Service Options

View Official Scorecard

In terms of reliability and delivery performance, UPS purportedly delivered over 90 percent of its packages on time while FedEx lagged behind with approximately 88 percent of packages being delivered on time. However, the average delivery time of FedEx shipments was about thirty minutes shorter than UPS's average delivery time.

 

One service that UPS provides and FedEx does not is the ability to mail large shipments in packaging that does not have the UPS label. Businesses who ship packages frequently can choose to use unlabeled packaging or packaging that includes their own company logo. FedEx, on the other hand, only ships packages in boxes with the FedEx logo.

 

Both companies also make excellent use of ecological principles in their delivery methods. UPS is noted for its use of alternative fuels to reduce its carbon footprint while FedEx uses hybrid vehicles for a large percentage of its deliveries.

When FedEx merged with Kinko's, it became a huge powerhouse in the business community. Now, FedEx offers printing, scanning, and labeling services as well as delivery services. Each FedEx Kinko's location is also a convenient holding site for delivered packages.

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