As Amazon Air Expands, FedEx And UPS May Suffer

20509 ratings | 2476827 views
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.

CANT ANYONE see what they are doing? They want to replace the USPS Fed Ex and Ups. They will have capital to buy the later 2 soon. ALL industries will suffer. They've screwed the trucking also brokering their own loads out for nothing. This company needs to be stopped. They already have an Artificial intelligence plan to make us all puppets in the future, and their agenda with that along with google, tesls, and Facebook is outright scary.

Amazon pay your flight crews a living wage like FedEx and UPS pay. Pilots are NOT slaves...STOP treating them like they are...PAY THEM right. If you don''t you WILL have a PIlot Union taking over your airline SOON

Amazon is not good for the economy.

Amazon, FB, Google and others are acquiring too much power. Perhaps government is beyond the point of no return in modifying/controlling such power and can't do much. Money/power is what Bloomberg has in great abundance. Conceivably he can/will buy the presidency of the United States. That sort of power is fraught with implications for the electoral system. Scary.

Well that would be okay, when I use to ship regularly, stuff sold on ebay, ups would regularly damage packages and then not do anything about it. Guess what goes around comes around. Treat every customer with respect, or maybe they will buy their own fleet of planes and trucks and stand up in bbn ur azz hole.

USPS has been losing money for as far back as I can remember. Why? They are sub-standard and always will be. Our local office acts like they are doing me a favor for making me wait in line in a crappy facility, mixing business people at counters and ones that can have one or two items that could be in and out in a couple of minutes. I am actually surprised they don't use horses for their logistics network hubs. They can't even get mail to the correct address. At least once a week, our carrier that has been on this route for at least the last 5 years, doesn't even check the address or name. Just shoves stuff in our box and shoves our stuff in other peoples boxes. It's beyond rediculous. I have no pity for them whatsoever.

As an online seller who ships hundreds of packages a week, this report is extremely inaccurate.
flipmane (14 days ago)
Amazon is building a bubble network. Everything they do is controlled by them. FedUp have a broad network that looks like a tree, and only offer a handful of shipping services. The fact that the Fedex spokesman was not nervous and trying to belittle Amazon's network, means that his analysts need to step up their game.

its called monopoly
Chris Barr (17 days ago)
The Government will eventually break Amazon into many smaller pieces to reduce their domination of so many areas of the economy. Their is true risk will too much concentration in one company operating such a huge chunk of the economy.

People say amazon will become a monopoly and yet refuse to fight against it and shop elesewhere. There are so many stores that price match them anyways.

Some people will say you need to reign Amazon in. I say dont be like Blockbuster. If you're finished innovating and moving forward, someone will take your place tomorrow. Also, not one person here is going to stop ordering things on Amazon because they like it, so please sit down or vote better with your money

Years ago, there was something called the 'anti-trust' laws which prohibited monopolies. Amazon has used its brilliant operations and stunning growth to overwhelm industries. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, per se, but we have to remain vigilant to ensure fair competition...

Everyone bashing on the fed ex executive needs to understand that he has to be positive. If he agrees that it’s hurting business, share holders will sell stocks etc. he HAS to be positive lol. It’s business. I doubt he agrees with 100% of what he’s saying.

FedEx and UPS should consider buying a large stake in Amazon and become a shipping department of Amazon therefore tame Amazon potential outgrowing them even though its a small number
Omega Man (1 month ago)
the fedx guy is correct in the current state of the industry. amazon is not breaking any new ground they are just trying to duplicate the capabilities of already established firms, Brown and fedx. Brown and fedx do more than just deliver packages, amazon has no idea what its going to cost to equal the scope and scale of Brown and fedx in the long run.
Omega Man (1 month ago)
Brown is still king of domestic delivery by far. Amazon will not surpass Brown as along as amazon employs ICs running around in flip-flops throwing packages on the front steps. And as for "free shipping" there is no such thing as free shipping. Only a sucker believes he/she is getting free shipping.
Pro Gadget Review PGR (1 month ago)
Maybe that's why they charge sometimes double the amount of money spent on goods. Under " shipping " , they're trying to expand their fleet !
Deplorable American (1 month ago)
FedEx senior VP is an idiot and our of touch from reality. FedEx delivery contractors are very unprofessional, rude and have no respect for their customers from my experience. They treat delivery packages as basket balls. Therefore, they need to be abolished.

They're making it seem like a bad thing that Amazon is making the industry more competitive: bringing lower prices, consumer choice, jobs, and innovation. Why not let Amazon eliminate the middle man during their operations? No harm in that, many businesses do it. The question is: is amazon ever gonna be profitable? We'll see, and if the investors r wrong, then amazon's gotta shrink down and liquidate their assets or bring back the middleman

Let's asked "BEST BUY" co would know how Amazon was so amazingly friendly to even keep them on track. And Amazon would be a good one for FedEx competition. Give it a ten year range. Amazon Seattle is going to bankrupt ya' company with no doubt. Within' the half mark five year term would probably say 3 half year range would show the big jump and percentage. but still , FedEx been in the game for decades. sometime u just can't be so comfortable about the small company's (was once small, "Amazon") that took the world by surprised. Lower your price FedEx in order to keep you customers..

So is Amazon going into delivering standard mail? People/businesses use Fedex to deliver time sensitive letters/packages. I don't get how they could impact FedEx's business. Fedex never delivered my Amazon packages anyway. I think i saw the ups man once. Jeff Bezos is a beast. maybe they can put the post office out of business if they could get access to our boxes. hmmm.
