FedEx vs. UPS Accidents: Breaking Down the Numbers

These numbers show a few things: while there are still more UPS accidents than FedEx accidents, the number of FedEx accidents has skyrocketed over the past few years.

  • Stay focused and alert

  • Do not depend on other drivers

  • Keep your speed down
