    Looks like free advertising. Like the logos on our trucks. Like the Amazon prime tape on the boxes?

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    These are the trailers that Amazon purchased to move their own volume between distribution centers.

    So easy to create your own delivery system while oil is in such glut. Feel free to come back to this thread when oil goes back up to 60-80 range.

    They're called BCOs or business capacity owners. Most companies with this arrangement a guy owns a semi and leases a trailer from the company.

    Be interesting to see when Amazon gets the heat for failing to meet their own promise of delivery for Christmas.
    Not having one of the big players to blame will put all of the pressure on Amazon to do a lot of explaining!

    We like the return side a lot more than delivery side.

    Yes. But amazon really only makes 4. To 6 billion profit. With 24 billion in sales. UPS makes 4 to 6 billion each quarter. They as of now. Can't afford a delivery company. Unless they buy out someone who is. This is my bet. If they want yo deliver
