I vote for UPS because no one can mess with Brown!
FedEx is the worst business this side of pay pal and eBay. They sacrifice customer support for price. Its a very very sad proposition.

<------------------------------------------------!


First they lost a box of AR barrels. Well by lost I do mean delivered to the wrong house....which house is unknown, but it wasn't mine.

The latest caper you ask? They "don't have a current location" for an entire browning 1919a4. Some where between Billings and my house. I'm sure I'll be reimbursed for it if they cant ever get the location, but its getting a bit extreme now.

2 for 2 here. F' em

I say DHL, they'll wait until either fedex or brown has won over the other but is in a weakened and wounded state after the epic battle, and they'll silently come from behind and slit their throat

Since I work for the Big Brown Shit Stain I say UPS!

I really don't have any problems with any service. Around here, they both work well.

I usually use FedEx Ground for business stuff.

DHL.

They're now the biggest shipping company in the world, they gobble up companies every six months or so.

Current merger will nearly double their US payroll.

Their Europe and Asia divisions both have over 500K employees, and now so does US.

Thet waited until they'd consolidated the other operations before they moved into the US market, they're about to seriously hurt UPS and fedex IMO.

Depends on whether Buster Brown/Teamsters play that strike card again. The last strike brought more business to FedEx,and DHL became a player.

FedEx. They would make sure all of UPS's firearms and ammo were lost in transit and then defeat them easily.

UPS and FedEx will merge and call themselves Fed-UP
Link Posted: 1/8/2006 12:39:07 PM EDT
FedEx would show up at the wrong address at the wrong time. UPS by default.

Fedex pays the bills where I'm at...

So will all the employees that are downsized after the merger form their own company and call themselves S-EX?

For Shipments & Exchanges of course.

DHL, I've used them since they bought Airborne Express.

ed; I've had UPS deliver to the wrong house, even though the package had the correct address and I've had FedEx leave deliveries on the steps of my front porch, right underneath the sign that says "packages inside, please" .

ever been delivered anything through DHL???

we use about every freight company on a daily basis at work and DHL drivers are too stupid to even hit the top 10, everytime we use them something gets damaged, everytime.

i gotta go with UPS, all those crack head package handlers at the denver hub would throw down the whoop ass for that next rock.

ETA: worked at UPS for like a month when i was 19, theres a reason they dont do drug tests...
they wouldnt have any employees.

And Airborne Express/DHL sure has some scuzzy folks working for them.BTW,they have run into alot of problems integrating DHL/Airborne up in Wilmington OH.(used to work at DHL's hub in CVG).

I just got rates for the following hypothetical shipment:

41lbs 41x12x6 insured for 750 from 59401 to 45881

Here's what I got
SHIPPER...........................COST.........................TIME in TRANSIT
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
USPS:...............................36.86...............................6 days
DHL:.................................27.57...............................6 days
UPS:.................................41.10...............................4 days
FedEx:..............................31.60...............................N/A
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The winner is of course DHL but I've never tried them before.

I would imagine however like everything else in life...you get what you pay for.

DHL doesn't ship firearms. Fuck them.
Link Posted: 1/8/2006 1:24:31 PM EDT
id rank this fight according to their weapons shipping policies.
DHL totaly sucks
UPS just plain sucks
FEDEX wins this brawl for having halfway decent weapons shipping policies
Link Posted: 1/8/2006 1:29:36 PM EDT
FedEx drivers are independents, so they could care less about your packages, my UPS guy is awesome, same guy for 3 years now, FedEx changes weekly.
Link Posted: 1/8/2006 1:30:47 PM EDT
Neither. They would both be DQ'd because they were late to the match.

USPS would use the power of the Federal Govt. to crush all challengers.
