UPS Winning the Global Logistics Battle

A new analysis of logistics and transportation companies indicates that UPS is in the strongest financial position to expand globally. The analysis compares UPS with major competitors FedEx, Deutsche Post and TPG. The analysis draws on the comparative financial results of major companies. UPS is beating its competitors significantly on operating margin, net income and other measures. The conclusions of the analysis are presented in a new report, “The Globalization of Logistics Services.” The report is an overview of the major integrators and logistics services providers. Exel, Danzas, AEI, Maersk, Neptune Orient/APL and Kuehne & Nagel are also profiled.

The report includes gross estimates for the logistics spend by continent. The estimates rank North America first, followed by Europe and Asia.

Included with the report is an appendix titled “An Overview of Air Freight and Container Markets.” This appendix summarizes critical data from public sources on freight airline size, market share and use of forwarders. Ocean container statistics include a list of top U.S. importers.
