I have heard that FedEx SmartPost just picked up the Amazon account, this was all of the stuff that Amazon used to haul to the post office themselves, up to 400,000 shipments per day. UPS tried to get the business but must have gotten underbid. So UPS is thinking of a new service, like Basic, but all of the packages would be USPS, not just rural and po boxes. Don't know if its true or not, but that's what I heard. This came from a customer, a big Smartpost shipper, and he said his UPS rep told him that.
