    they are taking the steps to do so and it's obvious. they just bought shipping companies in europe, they are buying trucks, cargo etc......

    They are on a quest to rule the commerce world.

    The question is when do you think this will start effecting UPS and our jobs?

    Really? Sounds like denial. HEre are FACTS

    -Amazon is building their own infrastructure of sort centers to run directly to USPS. This is pushing Fedex and UPS out of the picture more and more by the day.
    -Amazon has leased a few thousand trailers
    -Amazon has their own small trucking company in operation now
    And jets
    And is moving into international transportation
    -Amazon's freight spend this year will increase 75%.
    -Amazon is opening 46 new buildings Q1

    Don't believe everything you read. Amazon is full of hyped up predictions. Mostly to please shareholders.

    -Amazon only accounts for 1.9% of revenue and .07% of profit

    Amazon is moving to become more self-sufficient and increase their margins. Good for them.

    When I started JC Penneys was our largest account and now they're not - I still have a job.

    Don't be a victim of the hype machine. Amazon needs to keep it going to keep their stock from crashing.
