United Parcel Service reported mixed third quarter results Tuesday morning, posting earnings that beat analyst expectations and revenue that fell short of predictions.

Here’s how the company performed compared to Wall Street expectations, according to Refinitiv.

  • Earnings per share $2.99 vs. $2.84 expected.
  • Revenue $24.16 billion vs. $24.30 billion expected.

UPS also reaffirmed its outlook for full-year revenue of $102 billion and adjusted operating margin of about 13.7%.

The shipping giant struggled in the prior quarter with declining volumes, partially offset by higher rates. The decrease in shipments was attributed to less business with large clients like Amazon.

Rival FedEx lowered its holiday volume forecast in October, weeks after it reported weakening demand, announced rate hikes and implemented broad cost-cutting measures. FedEx CEO Raj Subramaniam warned of a “worldwide recession.”
