The world’s largest delivery company has been beating analyst expectations recently–a big change from a few years ago when the company consistently under-delivered. Booming e-commerce continues to impact the company’s operations, leading to more residential delivery–though the company makes less money on home delivery than on fulfilling bulk B2B shipments. More hubs and automation are giving the company runway for growth. On the other hand, rivals like FedEx and Amazon pose threats to the business.
