Your Opinion Question: What shipping company do you prefer?
Recently I have been shipping many packages. I normally use UPS but I have found that DHL and FedEx would be cheaper on most packages. Does anyone have pros and cons with shipping services? Who you prefer for fragile packages, who you prefer for packages you don't care about? I heard UPS takes the best care of your packages but what is your humble opinion?

DHL is the cheapest. UPS, DHL and FedEx all take care of your packages equally well. I've never had anything ruined by any of them.

UPS fastest, takes the best care, polite and better coverage areas. note-this means you can get a next day package from fed-ex, and if it's not in your coverage area it really can take up to 4 days.

USPS is not bad if you think about the money though it takes a long time to ship. But DHL & FedEx both are not so cheap but they ship sooner than USPS. Sometimes USPS offers us free shipments. So I prefer USPS for packages I don't care and FedEx & DHL for fragile packages.

I work in this industry, you should always call each one to compare prices. If you are consistently shipping packages, try contacting a sales rep from each company to set up an account to possibly work out a discounted rate.
