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.

Amazon needs to be stopped, they are putting local businesses out of business, people are becoming jobless, are creating a monopoly which will end up hurting consumers in the end and they DON'T PAY TAXES, they have to be stopped before they get rid of USPS!

Unfortunately nobody has noticed that Amazon is delivering Amazon packages....they will NOT make a serious profit since they are servicing their own products not outside companies.

It wouldn't shock me to see Amazon acquire some of the first hybrid planes in the future. They can go green, cut expenses and still get orders to customers fast. The same with semi-trucks also. If they do it, I said it first.

Yeah but the us postal which is the government cant be taken down; fedex and ups do international what does prime do domestic. And prime air is also owned and operated by atlas who is also providing the planes plus they are also operated by ATI and a few others so what are they tickling no one and fedex and ups still are orderinng planes

One thing to add to is Amazon works its employees to the bone and pilots as well. They are known for cooking books on pilot log flight hours wont be long before they are hit with the 50k fine per pilot

Today Amazon has one day delivery. Something I heard about Amazon is that, say for example I go on Amazon.com and look at an item for sale today. Amazon will pre ship the item to the nearest fulfillment center, on the chance I might order that item in a few days. If I order it from Amazon a week later, it is already in the nearest center ready to ship to me. Amazing. I just ordered an item yesterday and it was delivered 30 minutes ago. When I clicked on my order status an hour ago, a map popped up stating the truck was 6 stops away. While looking at the map, the screen refreshed every 30 seconds. It updated the trucks location when it moved. When it said I was next, I walked out of my house and the truck was coming down my street. These are a few reasons that Amazon is as big with online sales as it has become.

I wouldnt mind Amazon if they didnt send everything in plastic then in a box. If he gets rid of the merchandising plastic it might be wirth it all. Box stores have to have plastic merch. But he really doesnt if he tells them not to use it.

And after they say that we need to limit everything to save the environment
They could just put the packages on FedEx and ups and on airlines
Amazon's utilization is only 7 hrs/day, and is not cost effective so it is a money loosing operation. Even FedEx fleet at 15 hrs/day is a brake even and FedEx owns their aircraft outright where Amazon is leasing their aircraft. Amazon you can not make any money diversifying into air shipping. Stick to car and driver ops

Amazon has its own delivery force called Amazon Flex. It hires individuals with an app based system just like uber. The people sign up for blocks of deliveries, pick them up at the amazon flex warehouse and deliver just like a postman, fedex or ups. They just use their car or personal truck with a bedcover. If it's not in your area yet, its coming.

Balerio Torres (2 months ago)
Well ups and FedEx tend to not deliver the packages at front door. Their delivery drivers will mark that they came to your door when they really don't, making people to pick up the packages from their businesses. Prime customers always get the stuff delivered, so far everything I buy in Amazon gets to my door.

Amazon will cave-in and fall due to political pressure in Washington. The public's sentiment will be so outrageous by the fact that Amazon is trying to create a virtual monopoly that at some point the company will suffer major losses.

Amazon pay's their drivers and workers minimum wage while UPS and FedEx eventually pay them middle class wages. Amazon makes profit out of the desperate, the staff at Amazon need to unionize.

My girlfriend now works for ATS (amazon transportation services) at Amazon, which is basically a new sales team/division trying to basically undercut Fed ex & UPS & USPS. My gf thinks she’s good at sales bc all she has to do is sell someone a price slashed service. Any time you can offer the same or similar service for half the price it’s unfair. This is Amazon’s game though, price cutting while being non profitable. Mind you she was working in a division called Amazon Restaurants at first which just recently got shut down bc amazon couldn’t compete with doordash and Uber eats, just saying.

Why didn't you interview UPS? You know how many Amazon packages are delivered by FedEx to me? Maybe 3-4, do you know how many UPS delivers? 50+. Ask the guy who is delivering almost all of Amazon's packages how much their business will take a hit if Amazon does it's own deliveries.

Everything I get on amazon I’m a little disappointed but yet I keep ordering things probably because it’s a known company so feels more safer to order on line and lots of small business depends on amazon having their products on amazon website
