As Amazon Air Expands, FedEx And UPS May Suffer How Scammers in China Manipulate Amazon 9 months ago   10:15

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.

Which industry do you think Amazon will disrupt next? Made
Amazon is going to put literally everybody out of business. I better try to get a job there when I graduate.

Fed-Ex ....exec thinks Amazon isn't a shipping threat? He's an idiot. Bye bye Fed-Ex idiot.
Fed-Ex guy making out that Amazon Air is no threat to them. Yeah right, maybe not in the short term but Amazon is a monster that keeps growing and expanding.

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!

Amazon is growing

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.
