    I didn't notice a large increase in volume because of Prime Day. Yeah volume was up a little but since they couldn't get the air processed on time we had late start times all week. They dumped a little extra in Surepost and it really wasn't that big a deal here.
    A lot of retailers are doing the discounted or free shipping. As for Amazon itself the quality of some of the products they ship and ship time from when something has ordered have gone down hill. With other retailers catching on in how to play the game, I think Amazon has peaked.

    This gets said on here every few months, and they continue to grow. Prime day this year was 50% bigger than last year.

    That's nothing, had to load one truck with 350 and another with 310. Both had to leave pieces behind because there was no room.
