jtown: They're supposed to save money but how can both companies make a decent profit when both have to share in a smaller amount of money?


UPS sends it through the Post Office when postal mail is cheaper than sending a truck the last several miles; UPS still gets most of the money for moving it most of the way. They both benefit from getting some payment instead of not getting the package at all, when the customer is willing to pay less for a longer travel time.

Financially, it's most likely to happen when the shipping system is cheapest for short-distance shipments. If both UPS and USPS have nationwide delivery prices, then those two are in direct competition. But if USPS has a rate which is less for shipments which move a short distance, then UPS can compare their overall delivery costs against the cost of delivering it to within a cheaper USPS region.

maxandgrinch: Those took 9 years?

How about some art for TheDonald: anyone have a beaker and a cross?


9 years of bussing tables so he could afford to ship stuff FedEx.

UPS isn't that smart or flexible.

Then why DIDN'T you do it, is the question? If you could have done it, why didn't you?
