    Amazon's Drones Set to Take Out UPS, FedEx - The Street

    Amazon has disrupted countless industries: retail, cloud computing, music, movies and so much more. Now, it's onto its latest venture: disrupt shipping.

    In what is an attempt to disrupt the businesses of UPS and FedEx, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos unveiled Amazon PrimeAir on 60 Minutes Sunday, Amazon's new drone delivery service, which it hopes will allow it to get packages into the hands of customers in 30 minutes or less.

    "I know this looks like science fiction," Bezos said during the interview, while unveiling the automated delivery drones. "It's not."
