    I think UPS should tell Amazon, we want exclusive rights for 10 years or deliver your own crap. All or nothing. We are allowing them to slowly vamp up their own deliver system.

    Just between you and me, since we are friends, your should be you're. Thankfully, I don't think the OP will catch it though.

    The post office and Fed Ex wouldn't be able to keep up during peak. Everyone would be screwed.

    So in the mean time we just keep doing what we are doing and slowly allow them to deliver their own goods and cut us out completely.

    It's just begging Amazon to accelerate their plans. Their air network has already grown at an extremely impressive rate.

    The only people getting screwed would be UPS and all the drivers being laid off

    So we should give up the revenue because they're making a business decision? What do you tell the drivers who are laid off because we lose the account? Oh well they were going to be done with us in 5 years anyways.

    Seasonal drivers. They get laid off anyway.

    Just look at Surepost. We had to cut routes when Amazon decided to start taking their stuff to the post office themselves. That should tell you something.

    It would affect all drivers.

    The only way your plan would work is if Fedex got on board and cut them off also

    So let's punish ourselves even further?

    The way things are going now we can continually build up volume from e-commerce while Amazon draws down. It all evens out in the end. Announcing tomorrow we are done with Amazon would not only destroy the stock, it would eliminate jobs now, not just seasonal peak jobs.

    What if this kicked off outside of peak then who should be laid off?

    That's not a bad idea. I honesty just think that by doing nothing we are helping to create our next competition.

    What competition? They want to deliver their own stuff.

    I honestly don't have that much Amazon anyway. It won't change my route at all. And we are terribly short drivers as well. I don't see a huge layoff.

    We get trailers full of it everyday. Half of our air is Amazon. Just because your route is that way doesn't mean it isn't like that everywhere.

    Any executive that makes a conscious decision to turn away profit earning business should not be running a company. They do not have the shareholders in mind.
