Was wondering with the big 3, FEDEX UPS DHL as the cargo haulers, what after those 3 is any real competion for sending a package?? When i have looked your choices are the big three or going to the post office which in turn the GOVT contracts FEDEX/ UPS to fly the package for them. So the question is what if any real competiton is out there for the big 3 to worry about ???????????? The big 3 have sort of a conulsion going, where they can pass on the increase in operating costs to the consumer since there is no real other place to go to send a package. EX you want to send a package from Chicago to L.A...the average person where do you go and what are your options for sending it?? probally only one of the big 3. Take the same scenario as flying on a passenger airline and you have at least 15 different airlines options. So this great ride that the big 3 have will continue until there is some competion.. Yeah the big 3 have a great business plan its offering a great service in a very limited competing market. Now if there real competion like the airlines have, i dont think the big 3 would be so big.. what are the other shipping options???There are a handful small cargo carries out there but i think they contract fly for the big 3 to some extent so they are not really competing agaisnt them..
