    Amazon Snags Sorting From FedEx to Avert Package Pileups - Bloomberg

    Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN), seeking to avoid shipping delays that marred last year’s holiday season, is taking more control of its delivery system by opening “sorting centers” around the country.

    With the new facilities, Amazon Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos is taking charge of work previously sent to partners such as United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS) and FedEx Corp. (FDX), giving greater flexibility over precisely how packages are delivered and more control over costs as he seeks to recoup losses from heavy spending.

    How does the title of this article say FedEx only? It's taking from ups too.

    (incidentally why did my AutoCorrect capitalize FedEx but not ups?)

    Is this the beginning of the end? how long before they have laser ship and on track delivering out of these sorting centers?
