This is odd really...  UPS pays their employees more, but 
Fedex gives better service at a lower price!
UPS also has been known  to hassle their customers a lot over 
how things are packed,  and over insurance claims.

Actually I have used FedEx for the last several years  because they are between 30-40% cheaper than The Brown Truck Folks, they have never lost any package I have sent or received, and the biggie: They didn't lobby the FCC and steal 2 MHz of our 220MHz band, then not give it back when they found that the package tracking scheme would not work on that group of freqs. FedEx is my prefered shipper, even if they do increase rates. They will still be  cheaper than UPS and they will be quicker, in 
most cases, too.
