    You never grow tired of being wrong do you? UPS carries almost TWICE as many international packages on a daily basis than FedEx - check the latest quarterly reports.

    Doubled revenue?

    FDX 2015 rev - $47.5B
    FDX 2011 rev - $39.3B

    Apparently basic math is not your forte. Stick with simple shapes and primary colors.

    It's interesting that you post on the UPS board but not the FDX board. Are you really a UPS hater as opposed to a FDX supporter? Blindly in love with FDX?

    Which company has ALWAYS had better margins (the best in the industry BTW) and higher revenue? Which company pays a higher dividend? Rely on FACTS not what you assume will happen in the future.

    Why were you really fired from UPS?

    Dirty Secret

    This is not a secret - why do you think UPS & FDX have raised the fuel surcharge despite the decrease in fuel prices? What's a customer to do? They could some money by going with USPS but that will typically be a downgrade in service. Oh yes, USPS raising rates on Priority Mail 15.6% for 2016.
