Hear from ProShip shipping experts as they take an in-depth look at everything FedEx and UPS

The holiday season is just around the corner. New research suggests that 65% of American shoppers expect to spend as much or more than they did during the 2020 holiday season. With the e-commerce explosion showing no signs of slowing down, shippers should prepare for a hectic and stressful peak shipping season.

With delivery concerns on the horizon as the supply chain network strains to meet capacity demands, shippers need to thoroughly understand and strategize with their carrier partners. As 2 of the largest market shareholders in the courier and parcel delivery space, FedEx and UPS cannot be left out of these discussions.
