    I think Amazon has hardly been using FedEx ground for much for the past year or even longer. Shouldn't make much difference if their trickle of packages is cut off.

    I do wonder how many extra stops this will add to the average route. Even 15 more is too freaking much for me at this point. I'm at the breaking point as is it is (not mentally).

    Probably depends on the area. Won't make much difference around here.

    Haven't you heard? More volume means more routes.

    I wonder what would happen if we cut ties with Amazon. There’s no way the post office could pick up the extra volume. Amazon would be screwed.

    Get ready to lose all of our other customers as UPS will cater solely to Amazon.

    Rightttt. From a company that knows how to make billions each year I am sure ups will put all its eggs in one basket. Get a grip mate.

    I wonder when our contracts with Amazon expire. This gives us a big advantage when it comes time to negotiate pricing.

    Get off the UPS teat and open your damn eyes.

    Prime week is a perfect example.

    They allowed ONE company to completely disrupt operations and cause service failures in :censored2:ing July.

    UPS needs to drop Amazon late October/early November. Then post #paybackfor2014 on social media.

    Great news. Either more work for us, or UPS drops them altogether as well, And Bezos drowns in his own vomit trying to get all his stuff delivered using his ex con workforce in their cute little sprinter vans and their personal Prius’s.

    Should have been done years ago. If we dropped them also, they would be so screwed its not even funny. The second they became a competitor we should have dumped them.
