    If Amazon ends up buying Fedex do you think UPS will downsize? Or would they just cut down on hiring?

    If Amazon buys FedEx, I think they are going to have some big issues.

    With FXG, not really because we're operating with subcontractors and their rabbit scanners are similar to our star V scanners.

    That can get weird.
    FedX is governed under the Airline Clause , unlike UPS which is under the Train Clause.
    The amount of government paperwork to complete and the rules to follow might be a merge killer.

    But they’re not talking about a merge, it’s a buy out. They can buy anything. Remember Whole Foods?

    Don't be surprised if it's walmart that would buy fedex. To compete with amazon. They already do a ton of business with them and have their own logistics in place for store delivery.

    Own logistics for store delivery? Are you sure that’s not UPS and FedEx?

    That is handled by FedEx. My wife works for a Walmart. And they have FedEx is located within their stores to ship from. Anything you order online from Walmart or jet.com already comes FedEx.
