    Amazon to suspend delivery service competing with UPS, FedEx: WSJ - Reuters

    Amazon.com Inc has put on hold a new delivery service that competes with UPS and FedEx, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

    Amazon is suspending the service because it needs people and capacity to handle a surge in its own customers’ orders, the Journal reported, citing sources.

    The company said here in March it would hire 100,000 warehouse and delivery workers in the United States to deal with a surge in online orders.

    What a joke that company is. They are losing way to much money on it, but are not going to say it.
    It will stop in June. In other words we are losing way to much money. Nix this bad plan.
