    My 2000/6000 shelf only had 11 packages that weren't Amazon.

    One of my customers has been complaining that instead of combining shipments they are sending everything in its own box. I've had 8-12 packages a day for her. All very small 1-2 lbs packages.

    There is still plenty of Amazon smiles in our cars, but at more sane levels than the mess we've had in recent years.

    I've worked normal hours all peak season. Only 1 day past 8:00, due to an accident.

    It is hard to remember UPS before Amazon.

    It is even harder to imagine UPS without Amazon.

    If you invested 1000 dollars in Amazon IPO, in 2013 that investment would be worth 236,000 dollars.

    Small investor never gets the IPO price. They have to wait until after it has risen on the bump. It would definitely have been a good investment though.

    Scottyhawk What is it? A brown box. Duh

    Wish Amazon would stop putting the labels on the flaps. IKM

    No Amazon?

    They may as well slapped Amazon logos on the planes we had come in this morning. Probably 80% Amazon.

    People don't think they'll be able to pull off an air cargo business. After seeing the air we got today, I'd beg to differ
  20. Right now they need us! But if there goal is to be able to deliver packages the same day at best and the next day at worst and they make this happen, no matter how long it takes, we become the 2nd biggest delivery company in the USA. That's best case scenario.
