Amazon aims to compete with FedEx and UPS in the logistics and shipping industry. That's what analysts told CNBC after Amazon Air recently expanded to 50 planes and announced it will open a $1.5 billion air hub in Northern Kentucky in 2021. Amazon is handling up to 26% of its own shipping, meaning FedEx, UPS and the U.S. Postal Service are losing a portion of Amazon's business. FedEx says it's not worried, but Morgan Stanley reports the major shippers have already lost 2% revenue to Amazon Air. » Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

In 2010, UPS ditched its iconic slogan, "What can brown do for you?" in favor of the more emotional and efficiency-oriented "We heart logistics." In 2015, the company cut the heart out of the equation, no longer professing its love for logistics and instead adopting the motto, "United Problem Solvers." While the latter two slogans sound less friendly, you could argue that they better reflect one of the unifying philosophies of the United Parcel Service: time is money, and if you want to save both...you can't waste a single second. In 2014, UPS employee Jack Levis explained to NPR… "Just one minute per driver per day over the course of a year adds up to $14.5 million." The pressure to shave off minutes from deliveries is increased by the number of stops UPS makes. For instance, according to the Chicago Tribune, in 2017, the company was slated to deliver 750 million packages worldwide between Thanksgiving and Christmas alone. To ensure the fastest deliveries humanly possible, and perhaps even super-humanly possible, UPS equips its trucks with sensors that track every movement a driver makes. When the company discovered that using a key to open doors was eating up precious seconds, keys were replaced with push-button key fobs. Drivers avoid making left turns to save time and fuel. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, trucks aren't air-conditioned because the average UPS delivery person opens their cargo bay doors 130 times a day. Similarly, during deliveries, drivers leave the passenger door open in order to make leaving the vehicle more efficient. Considering how often the doors are open during deliveries, it makes financial sense not to equip delivery vehicles with air conditioning. But that reasoning seems to assume that drivers won't stop mid-delivery to cool off on those long summer days when the sun seems determined to boil you alive. According to NBC News, UPS drivers have recorded temperatures in the truck as high as 152 degrees, and as Live Science notes, hyperthermia sets in for most people after only about 10 minutes in extremely humid, 140-degree heat. NBC also reports that various medical records and interviews showed that… "UPS workers have convulsed, fainted and landed in the emergency room with heat-induced kidney failure." So while UPS's candy-bar-colored trucks won't melt, the humans steering them probably feel like they're drowning in hot chocolate when Mother Nature cranks up the heat. In August 2016, 59-year-old James Klenk suffered heat stroke and kidney failure after several consecutive days working in his brutally hot truck. He spoke to NBC about his terrifying experience. In 2018, Klenk's wife, Theresa, started an online petition demanding that UPS provide air-conditioned trucks for its drivers. The company expressed appreciation for its drivers' efforts but noted that, quote… "Working outdoors throughout the year is the nature of the job." UPS only keeps a small fleet of air-conditioned trucks for trips that cross the California desert. But that's no consolation to drivers in other trucks when every road feels like a flaming desert and their minds start to play tricks on them. UPS is a well-oiled machine, and as the cogs behind the wheel, drivers are expected to be as efficient as mechanically possible. The obvious problem with treating people like machine parts is that they aren't hardwired to function like robots. Employees need time for basic human functions, like refuelling their bodies and, when nature calls, using the bathroom...which is something most robots don't have to worry about. In 2015, an anonymous UPS driver identified as "Bill" told the Nation that something as simple as using the restroom was considered, in his words, "stealing time" from the company. Bathroom visits weren't the only kind of waste the company frowned upon. Bill also said… "If you turned the truck on before you put on your seat belt, that's wasting gas." Sensors recorded when his foot was on the brake, how far he backed up everything. And UPS isn't alone in monitoring every millisecond of an employee's day. In 2013, FedEx warehouse employee, Reynalda Cruz, suffered inflammation in her arm because of a scanner that tracked her every movement, and when she slowed down because of the pain, she was ordered to speed up. Similarly, according to the Verge, Amazon automatically tracks warehouse workers and fires them for not meeting productivity quotas. Unfortunately, when companies obsess over cutting costs, staff members often pay the price and, in the end, do you really want your packages delivered by an overworked and underappreciated employee? #UPS #FedEx

It’s fulfillment centers are the heart of the operation and connect to other distribution centers. It still mostly relies on 3rd party logistics providers like UPS and FedEx. Its own fleet of planes and trailer trucks is gradually growing but still only responsible for a fraction of the packages. This video was an oversimplification.

UPS is beginning a groundbreaking new logistics program using unmanned drones to deliver medical samples at a North Carolina hospital. It’s the first FAA-sanctioned use of a drone for routine revenue flights transporting products under a contractual delivery agreement. The pilot program is taking place at WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh, North Carolina, overseen by the FAA and North Carolina Department of Transportation. The program represents a major milestone for unmanned aviation in the U.S. Working with Matternet, a California drone company, drones operate multiple times a day between a medical building on the edge of WakeMed’s campus and the hospital’s main pathology lab. The project is part of the FAA’s Unmanned Aircraft System Integration Pilot Program, or IPP. The IPP aims to test practical applications of drones by partnering local governments with private sector companies to learn how drone technology can be integrated safely and usefully into day-to-day activities. The program is managed by the UPS Advanced Technology Group. Bala Ganesh, who leads the group, said drones are an important part of UPS’s transformation efforts. “What you’re seeing is transformation in action. It will play out over the next four or five years, but today is the first step in that journey,” Ganesh said. The M2 drone can carry a five-pound payload over a distance of up to 12.5 miles, at a speed of more than 40 miles per hour. Initial service involves short hops moving blood samples between buildings at WakeMed, but even that short distance can have a significant impact. The service avoids road delays and reduces transit time from hours by courier to potentially just minutes by drone. As the project advances, drones will connect the hospital with satellite medical facilities miles away. UPS will use what it learns at WakeMed to identify drone service opportunities at more U.S. hospitals and potentially other specialized segments. “This opens the door for UPS and Matternet to serve the life science sector in a more robust way as logistics demands shift,” said Chris Cassidy, president of UPS Global Healthcare and Life Science Logistics. “Healthcare logistics is a strategic focus for UPS, and we are developing innovative solutions that position us as the logistics provider of choice.” Dr. Stuart Ginn, director of WakeMed Innovations, said he’s excited about the drone program because it has the potential to reshape how the hospital provides care to patients. He added that UPS’s participation has been critical. “When a company like UPS shows up and shows interest, it legitimizes the entire industry and accelerates the entire industry,” he said. #UPS #drone #healthcare

Amazon is already delivering about half of its own packages in the U.S., according to a Morgan Stanley estimate on Thursday, and will soon pass both United Parcel Service and FedEx in total volume. “Our AlphaWise analysis shows that Amazon Logistics already delivers ~50% of Amazon US volumes, focused on urban areas,” Morgan Stanley said. Amazon Logistics is the e-commerce giant’s in-house logistics operation. Morgan Stanley said Amazon Logistics “more than doubled its share” of U.S. package volumes from about 20% a year ago and is now shipping at a rate of 2.5 billion per year. For comparison, Morgan Stanley estimates UPS and FedEx have U.S. shipping volumes of 4.7 billion and 3 billion packages per year, respectively.” “We see more of this going forward as our new bottom-up US package model assumes Amazon Logistics US packages grow at a 68% [compound annual growth rate from 2018 to 2022],” Morgan Stanley said. That would put Amazon Logistics at 6.5 billion packages per year by 2022, according to the firm, far exceeding its estimate for UPS at 5 billion packages per year and FedEx at 3.4 billion packages per year. “To us, Amazon Logistics is already-large scale and with a fleet ~1/5 the size of competitors, it speaks to its ability to use density and technology to drive efficiency,” Morgan Stanley said. The firm says Amazon Logistics is more focused than its competitors on densely populated areas. According to Morgan Stanley’s estimate, about 61% of Amazon Logistics’ package volumes are from suburban areas, 28% are from urban areas, and just 11% are from rural areas. That makes Amazon Logistics’ rural focus about half of its competitors, as the rest of the industry typically derives 20% of package volume from rural areas, the firm said. Morgan Stanley has an overweight rating on Amazon shares, with a $2,100 price target that is nearly 20% above the stock’s current level. The firm also lowered its price target on both UPS shares to $78 from $85 — about 33% below its current price — and FedEx shares to $111 from $120 — which would be a drop of about 32% from current levels. Morgan Stanley has an underweight rating on UPS and an equal-weight rating on FedEx.

UPS (NYSE:UPS) subsidiary UPS Flight Forward Inc. today announced it has received the U.S. government’s first full Part 135 Standard certification to operate a drone airline. The company will initially expand its drone delivery service further to support hospital campuses around the country, and to provide solutions for customers beyond those in the healthcare industry. UPS Flight Forward plans in the future to transport a variety of items for customers in many industries, and regularly fly drones beyond the operators’ visual line of sight. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) awarded UPS Flight Forward a Part 135 Standard certification on Friday. The UPS subsidiary immediately launched the first drone delivery flight by any company under Part 135 Standard at WakeMed’s hospital campus in Raleigh, N.C. That flight, using a Matternet M2 quadcopter, was flown under a government exemption allowing for a “beyond visual line of sight” (BVLOS) operation, also a first in the U.S. for a regular revenue-generating delivery. UPS has proven the need for drone delivery in healthcare operations, where the shortest time in transit can improve efficiency and help healthcare professionals serve their patients better. Earlier this year, UPS partnered with drone-maker Matternet to launch its healthcare delivery service on the WakeMed campus. This first ever revenue-generating service demonstrated the business case for drone delivery of medical products and specimens. With its Part 135 Standard certification, UPS is ready to build on this application and expand to a variety of critical-care or lifesaving applications. “This is history in the making, and we aren’t done yet,” said David Abney, UPS chief executive officer. “Our technology is opening doors for UPS and solving problems in unique ways for our customers. We will soon announce other steps to build out our infrastructure, expand services for healthcare customers and put drones to new uses in the future.” The FAA’s Part 135 Standard certification has no limits on the size or scope of operations. It is the highest level of certification, one that no other company has attained. UPS Flight Forward’s certificate permits the company to fly an unlimited number of drones with an unlimited number of remote operators in command. This enables UPS to scale its operations to meet customer demand. Part 135 Standard also permits the drone and cargo to exceed 55 pounds and fly at night, previous restrictions governing earlier UPS flights. “UPS Flight Forward is benefitting from our knowledge as one of the world’s leading airlines. The Flight Forward organization is building a full-scale drone operation based on the rigorous reliability, safety, and control requirements of the FAA,” Abney said. “This is a big step forward in safely integrating unmanned aircraft systems into our airspace, expanding access to healthcare in North Carolina and building on the success of the national UAS Integration Pilot Program to maintain American leadership in unmanned aviation,” said U.S. Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao. UPS has established itself as a leader in unmanned aerial vehicle delivery, having tested drones for urgent commercial deliveries over water; funded and supported humanitarian deliveries in Africa; and tested non-urgent commercial residential delivery in rural areas with drones launched from a UPS package delivery car. UPS also has provided input to government regulators responsible for establishing rules for safe drone operations in the United States. A UPS senior executive has served since 2017 as one of a select group of corporate advisors on the FAA’s drone advisory committee. On The Horizon for UPS Flight Forward UPS Flight Forward is forging paths to create innovative new services for customers. Part 135 Standard certification enables UPS to integrate drones into the UPS logistics network, creating potential for new applications in many industries. The company has a long-term plan with important milestones in view. These include: Expansion of the UPS Flight Forward delivery service to new hospitals and medical campuses around the country. Rapid build-out of ground-based, detect-and-avoid (DAA) technologies to verify drone safety, while enabling future service expansion. Construction of a centralized operations control center. Regular and frequent drone flights beyond the operator’s visual line of sight. Partnerships with additional drone manufacturers to build new drones with varying cargo capacities. Adding new services outside of the healthcare industry, including the transport of special commodities and other regulated goods. * A Part 135 Standard operator is a certificate holder that does not have pre-set limits on the available size or scope of their operations. There are four different scopes of operations for Part 135 certificate holders, as outlined by the FAA: 135 Single Pilot; 135 Single Pilot in Command; Basic; and Standard.

United Parcel Service (UPS) said Tuesday it has received government approval to operate a drone airline. The approval came last Friday, UPS disclosed. UPS says it immediately launched the first drone delivery flight by any company under what is known as the Federal Aviation Administration’s Part 135 Standard at WakeMed’s hospital campus in Raleigh, N.C. The flight was flown under a government exemption allowing for “beyond visual line of sight” operation. “This is history in the making, and we aren’t done yet,” said UPS CEO David Abney in a statement. “Our technology is opening doors for UPS and solving problems in unique ways for our customers. We will soon announce other steps to build out our infrastructure, expand services for healthcare customers and put drones to new uses in the future.” “It’s a really substantial pivot,” UPS chief strategy and transformation officer Scott Price tells Yahoo Finance. UPS also plans to expand its drone delivery service to those outside of the healthcare industry. A UPS spokesperson tells Yahoo Finance those other services initially could be drone service between other UPS sites and corporate campuses. Partnerships between UPS and major airlines are also being considered, according to UPS. Reading between the lines, UPS looks poised to take the leadership role in drone delivery for big business and eventually consumers. It’s unlikely UPS will be delivering packages to home residences at least until 2021 as the FAA continues to study safety protocol. Other companies like Alphabet (GOOGL) subsidiary Wing Aviation have been flying drone delivery test programs with similar restrictions. But Wing Aviation received Part 135 certification from the FAA in April and it plans to expand into commercial home delivery in Southwest Virginia with what it calls, “a delivery trial” later this year.

Meet the autonomous delivery robots which are shaping the future of food delivery. Starship A six-wheeled ground drone from Starship Technologies. Equipped with a sensor suite that includes cameras, GPS and inertial measurement units, the robot can deliver items within a 6km radius. It has a large compartment to hold deliveries equivalent to the size of two grocery bags with a maximum weight of 10kg. Once the robot has arrived at the customer, the compartment is opened using a unique code generated after placing the order from a smartphone app. In March 2017, Dominos entered into a partnership with Starship Technologies to use the latter's robots as "personal delivery devices" The company plans to distribute thousands of robots across campuses around the world by 2019. Kiwi Kiwi is an autonomous delivery robot that picks up and delivers food and personal-care items within a roughly 1.6 square kilometers area centered around campus. The robot uses Deep Learning to correctly interpret data gathered from its sensors and to make intelligent decisions that ensure a fast, safe and cost-efficient delivery. It can correctly identify traffic lights in order to cross streets and detect objects and obstacles to avoid collisions in a safe, reliable manner. Robomart Robomart, a literally little mini-mart on wheels. It is engineered with cutting-edge technology, including driverless tech for autonomy and teleoperations, an RFID and computer vision-based checkout-free system, and purpose-built refrigeration and temperature control. The bots are now used by Grocery store chain, Stop & Shop to deliver groceries to its customers. When customers want to buy some groceries, they simply tap a button in a smartphone app to request the nearest robomart.

*Snifff* -- mmmm, that new airplane smell. This is the worlds newest 747, just a few weeks old. It's a UPS 747-8f Freighter. The aircraft is immaculate, having just left the factory at Boeing to enter service with UPS. UPS was nice enough to invite me onboard the aircraft for an interview and tour with Erik, a long time Captain for UPS. First, we go through some of Erik's career and talk about how he got into aviation. Then we move onto what it's like to fly the 747, and what makes this 747 different from the 747-400. As we discuss some of those aspect of flying the plane, we start to touch on the details of the cockpit with a basic overview of how the cockpit controls, systems, and autopilot functions work together. We go over things such as the PFD, MFD and EICAS which are part of the glass cockpit. These systems have been around for a long time, but they're getting more refined and reliable as time goes on. While the displays and controls may look the same, there's a lot more going on behind the scenes. LED screens, faster computers, and more refined algorithms make this and other Boeing aircraft some of the safest in the world. Erik also talks about the 747-8fs new electronic checklist, which was introduced with the 777 and 787, and now making it into these upgraded versions of the 747, 737, etc. He also discussed redundancy of the FMCs (Flight Management Computers) as well as where pilots spend most of their time controlling the aircraft, which the Mode Control Panel (MCP) and Control Display Unit (CDU). We then take a look at the crew rest area for long haul flights, in addition to the cargo area where we run through some of the unique logistics that UPS must go through to load cargo. It's truly an amazing machine, and I hope you guys enjoy watching the video! #aviation #airliner #747
