USPS, VS FedEx, vs UPS: Which is The Cheapest Shipping Carrier?

 In Shipping

What is the cheapest, most cost-effective shipping option- USPS, FedEx or UPS? Determine which option is the most cost-effective one depends on what you’re shipping. In this article, we’re going to discuss the differences between USPS, FedEx, and UPS.

Shipping 2 LBS Or Heavier

FedEx Ground or UPS Ground will more often than not be less expensive than USPS Priority Mail. Between FedEx and UPS, FedEx is going to be more cost-effective than UPS out of the box simply because they provide you with an instant 15% off all shipments simply for creating an online account(Note: The degree of discount will vary in certain ways, but there’s always a discount program).

Shipping Under 2 LBS

USPS will perpetually be more cost-effective when compared to FedEx or UPS without a doubt. On the other hand, as the weight creeps closer to 2 pounds, USPS just about reaches pricing parity with UPS and FedEx Ground.

USPS excels when your package weighs less than 13 oz and can be mailed through First Class Mail. If reliability is of no concern to you, USPS is with a question the cheapest shipping choice for smaller, light options.

Do You Need Next Day Service?

USPS Express is once more the most inexpensive solution without a doubt, and it is assured. The only issue with USPS Express mail is that occasionally the delivery window is two days and you won’t have any idea until you check online.

In the end, it all boils down to how heavy the items you’re shipping and how fast you want them shipped.
