Both are good, as long as you have consistent shipments... From my records, the dicounts i get for overseas and domestic (USA) are cheaper using FedEx (mostly nextday). If you are not going to ship 2nd Day or Overnight... then UPS ground may be the way to go. (FedEx had ground service as well... not sure on the rates) Both have shipment calculators... you could try both and see which suits you more FedEx's online shipping interface is far superior (in terms of ease of use) than the UPS counterpart. UPS requires a lot more fields to be entered and generate PDFs, etc... more cumbersome, but manageable. However, if you get to the point where you dont ship 4 days a week, Fed Ex will call you and complain and threaten to stop thier pickup service because the driver has to spend 3.2 minutes to stop... total BS.. I have been seeing the commercials with the DHL trucks, and I might explore that one as well -Bret -----Original Message----- From: Ken Moore [mailto:psm2713 at hotmail.com] Sent: Thursday, December 16, 2004 12:37 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] UPS or Fedex? Hi, all This is a little bit off the usual track. I will be shipping 5 to 20 boxes of computers and/or peripherals per day. Insurance and priority shipping are not an issue. Packing materials, shipping costs, and pick are. All will be inside the USA. >From your experiences, which is better, UPS or Fedex? Why? tia, Ken _________________________________________________________________ Don't just search. Find.
