    Amazon's Going the Extra Mile to Deliver Your Packages - Motley Fool

    Amazon.com is testing its own in-house delivery service in a few key cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York. According to The Wall Street Journal, the company hopes to save money and reduce delivery times by cutting out package delivery companies like United Parcel Service and FedEx.

    At first glance, the prospect of having Amazon.com go its own way might seem like a big problem for UPS and FedEx. In reality, while Amazon may "insource" some deliveries, most of its packages will continue to be delivered by other companies for the foreseeable future. Moreover, other retailers will become ever more reliant on UPS and FedEx to compete with Amazon.
