Amazon

Remember that train load of yellow vans DHL shipped across the USA to put UPS and FedEx out of business. Amazon can purchase them cheap, there all painted white now and owned by a thousands of handymen and painters. It will take at least 2 decades and a $#!+ load of money from Amazon to duplicate a vast delivery network.
The craziest thing of all is UPS and FedEx can put a significant dent in Amazons model and profits simply by offering to sell products on there own websites and take care of the warehousing and shipping while charging the sellers a premuim similar to what Amazon charges. Not sure whats taking UPS and Fedex so long to figure that one out.

With all due respect, you underestimate and misunderstand exactly how and why Amazon has become such a commercial success.

UPS can't just become what Amazon has accomplished.

Amazon can't just become what UPS has become, either.

I’ve had this same idea as well, the biggest hurdle in this business model is the delivery network, and well, we have that already.

We move stuff around, not catalog them in a static location. We've already seen what even a few day's backlog does to a building. Both amazon and UPS would need some crazy infrastructure to do both.

So UPS should be scared of a fleet of vehicles once used to eliminate them, to eliminatem this time around?

Both UPS and FedEx needed Amazon just the same as Amazon needed UPS and FedEx. Amazon is what put e-commerce on the map. They all needed each other to this point. Now Amazon is using technology and forward thinking to pull ahead of the big two. This is how the tech world works. Get a clue.

It seems you know nothing of business and economics.

UPS and FedEx doing what Amazon does? Most existing facilities are run to the max right now. Even existing big retailers like Sears couldn't do what Amazon is doing and they're in the same business. Now Sears is on its way out. UPS and FedEx aren't in retailing and warehousing. Why would that be a fit?

If Amazon wanted, why would it take 2 decades to build a large delivery network? Look what they've done in their 2 decade existence. I don't think it's their intention to ever duplicate a UPS like infrastructure. 90% of what UPS delivers isn't Amazon. Turn that around and what would Amazon be delivering other than Amazon? Would they want to become another general carrier?
