Once upon a time, UPS offered to ship company-X's packages. Then one day, company-X decided to save money and ship it's own packages. Along the way, Company-X decided to help Company-A and Company-B save money on shipping costs too! In the end, many companies decided to save money by shipping with Company-X instead of UPS.

If they can handle peak, fine. If not, good luck. UPS shouldn't allow them to dump on up for only 5 weeks.

Should have been cut off ten years ago. UPS is probably the biggest reason Amazon is as powerful as they are. They would have drowned in their own vomit without us.

When was the last time UPS handled peak? With or without Amazon. Hell peak was a cluster F when I worked-- long before Amazon.

Why would company A and B put their product and more importantly their customer base into company X network when they are rivals of company X?
Company X will never get A, B or even company C business
