Businesses across the United States are facing what could be the latest disruption in getting their goods to their customers in a timely and affordable fashion.
With the labor contract between UPS and 325,000 of its workers due to expire at the end of the month and a potential strike looming, business owners pre-emptively turning to FedEx.
FedEx the next largest private carrier in the United States. Still others are calling their third-party shippers to ensure that their packages can still get to their final destinations even if there is a strike.
The pending strike would hurt smaller businesses more than larger ones that can withstand these types of situations.
