DHL, FedEx, and UPS, the three private giants, have been in business for decades. They’ve transported billions of parcels. And yet, there remain doubts aplenty about each of their strengths and weaknesses. Though in the same industry, the three behemoths function in unique ways. FedEx reigns supreme in the air, while UPS has an exhaustive fleet on the ground. DHL, on the other hand, specializes in international shipping.

USPS

Pickup TimeM-Sat Regular Mail 2.30 pm and M-F Express only 4 pm

The United States Postal Service is an independent agency of the executive branch of the United States federal government responsible for providing postal service in the United States. USPS will deliver to rural areas. The period between Thanksgiving and Christmas is the busiest time of the year for the USPS with the agency delivering a projected 900 million packages during this period.

For shipping packages less than two lbs., USPS is usually cheaper than Fedex. When it comes to shipping parcels greater than two lbs., FedEx can be more cost-effective than USPS, offering cheaper rates.

The USPS doesn’t give any precise information about shipping dates. In rare cases, parcels could take as long as three weeks to arrive.

In addition, their tracking can be inaccurate. On occasion, a parcel could show as delivered when it hasn’t arrived yet at the destination.  “Arrival at Unit” means that it was delivered to the post office unit that is closest for local delivery.   In other cases, tracking information might not be given at all until the parcel has already arrived.
