    All of this Amazon talk has got me wondering...

    What would be easier to accomplish..

    Ups become another Amazon, or Amazon become a UPS?

    Amazon is a technology company that already has its foot in the door with deliveries. It has the money to expand its network. I saw a lot more Amazon vans this year than I did last year.

    UPS is not going to venture into e-commerce, artificial intelligence, streaming media, and whatever else Amazon is involved in.

  3. Amazon becomes a "boutique" fed ex ground, delivering all of their own town resis is as far as I see it going.
    They will still farm out their rurals & probably some of their bigger heavier boxes.
    The amount of money it would take to build a system as massive as any of the 3 carriers would not make financial sense, hence Bozos is trying to find suckers to "run their own shipping company" under his banner.

    Ups has no intention of offering products but a service.

    Whats likely to happen is Amazon will keep growing and stomp out UPS all together. With the layoffs coming soon the writing is on the wall.

    Not yet because insurance has denied it. I just stuff my underwear with toilet paper.

    Toilet paper from home I hope. Not sure if you have noticed but UPS is on a budget this peak.

    I have. Everytime I drop one at work I always end up having my finger go through the paper and I touch my chocolate starfish.

    Amazon is a threat, but their prices are on the uptick and they are cutting products with too low of a margin. I'm rooting for Walmart at this point and in my opinion they have the advantage.
