UPS do compete with a variety of international operators, including Canada post, FCML worldwide, IDH express, royal mail, Japan post, India post and many other regional carriers, national postal services and air cargo handlers. The bulk of ups' competition came from inexpensive ground-based delivery services but in 1998 FedEx expanded into the ground parcel delivery market by acquiring RPS and rebranding it as FedEx ground in 2000
If you're using ground service, I recommend FedEx from personal experience. The prices always seem to be about 20% less and I've never had anything arrived damaged, which unfortunately has happened several time with UPS.
