AP: In a surprise announcement, CEO of UPS Richard Thomas said that due to high fuel costs and other economic factors that UPS was merging with FedEX. He did not expect any layoffs in the short term. Also no services would be affected. The new company would be operating under the name of FedUp.

They may as well...

They're the same company, just different names.

Same rules.

Can't send this, can't send that... and if you want this other thing to get sent, ya gotta pay $80...

Yeah, that'll happen.

Who knows, maybe becoming Fed/Up will make for better service. Perhaps the best of both companies. Also, I don't think being Fed/Up will break any antitrust laws.

Re: BREAKING! UPS TO MERGE WITH FedEx
I'll believe it when I see it. One thing I'm not sure about
is that I think UPS is unionized, and FedEx isn't. I wonder
how that will go over?
 Quoting: DrPostman


I think the Unions are FedUp also. I wonder if the truckers will become FedUp? This becoming FedUp business might cause a lot of problems.
Hey, just my 2 cents worth!

UPS is also very much employee-owned. They can't just up and decide to sell -- it's not even legally possible. FedEx could attempt a hostile takeover, and it would be up to the shareholders of UPS (employees) to decide if they would accept the buyout offer.

If enough employees become FedUp, things could get 'hostile'.

When I lived in Louisville, I worked at the 2nd day air hub for UPS. The employees are rather well-paid. They're not likely to become 'hostile' any time soon.

But you will likely have to spend more money to ship your packages with them. And that might make YOU hostile.

Ahhhh...but their service is much more reliable and their drivers are great. FedEx, on the other hand, just sucks all the way around.

I'll pay a higher price for a quality and good customer service any day.

Re: BREAKING! UPS TO MERGE WITH FedEx
Oddly enough, I thought Fedex bought out UPS YEARS AGO. Prompting the FedUp joke way back then.

Anyone know if this is true?? Maybe they are simply finally combining it into one company with one name? Or was that a rumor about something that never ended up happening?
