    I posted that Amazon has tractors now matching their Sprinters. There will be “ex con” methed up Semi drivers working for pennies at Amazon. Amazons airline is subbed out and pays lowest wage in the industry. The carriers are reducing min flight time to get pilots. You can fly a shiny 767 almost right out of flight school..

    UPS will see volume increases until Bezo’s plan is fully in place. Then the volume will drop significantly. Things seem to be pointing to Amazon partnering with DHL. Amazon needs an Intl network. DHL needs a North American network. Both will have increased volume from each other at reduced costs. Both will be able to serve markets where each other under serve.

    The Average customer blindly buys from Amazon thinking they are automatically getting a good deal because they pay for a Prime membership. LOL. I rarely buy from Amazon because I almost always find things cheaper somewhere else.

    They will just set up a recruiting desk inside the parole office. The upcoming you tube videos with Amazon delivery will be epic.

    Every Amazon driver I have seen had zero sense of professionalism. From the way they drive to where they leave packages. The other day I saw a Prime van do a five point U-turn in the middle of a busy two lane road. The dude could’ve went around the block and got to his next stop faster. They’re way too reliant on GPS. Amazon is just filling the roads with distracted, unmotivated and careless drivers.

    we all talk about professionalism and delivery methods and brown package car vs. white sprinter but here is the truth and john q. publics take on the matter. nobody cares who delivers there crap and nobody wants to see or interact with the delivery man. all they want is an alert on there phone with a pic of the package on there steps one to two days after they order said crap. and as i witnessed this week, nobody wants to sit behind a correctly parked and secured brown truck with flashers on blocking the street making a delivery around the corner from there house while there trying to get to work. (after stopping for a iced slushy coffee thingy). they much rather prefer seeing that white sprinter parked half up the curb facing the wrong way but NOT blocking that side street as they speed on by slurping that straw. and another thing is, nobody (40 or under) cares if your in uniform or if your truck is clean or if you got a beard or tattoos. even in commercial areas. whats the diff in you go in with a delivery with a beard and tatts only to deliver to some guy or girl with more tatts than you and a ring in there nose? change with the times or get left behind.

    Training. I wonder how many hours Amazon provides before going on the road, verses UPS or Fedex Express or even Fedex Ground? Just because you can drive a car with a decent DMV, does that make you a Professional Driver all of a sudden? Seems like Amazon is just the UBER of package delivery.

    do not renew the ups contract with amazon when it expires.
    We might see Amazon delivery sink faster than the Titanic!

    Each and every customer I’ve spoken to about Amazon (they always initiate the topic) cares. Their lack of professionalism is leading to damaged packages and reckless driving. Rampant unprofessionalism leads to more mistakes and accidents than by those that actually know what they are doing. So again....watching a typical Amazon driver is like watching the worst of UPS.

    This morning I personally witnessed two Amazon vans nearly cause what would have likely resulted in an eight car accident while turning off an on ramp from the interstate. They were both tailgating and both passed the vehicles they were behind while cutting other vehicles off. Yesterday’s lady told another driver one passed her at a high rate of speed in her neighborhood and ended up delivering to her house. Boy did he get an ear full when he returned to his van.

    Their mistakes are being noticed and will eventually get someone hurt or killed. Not all towns/cities are populated primarily by millennials that don’t care about these things. There are plenty of retirees and stay at home folks that see just how bad/dangerous Amazon is. To me it’s just another good reason why people need to stop being lazy and shop around more for a better price. Maybe we can get some of these maniacs off the roads in the process.

    Doesn't matter. They will continue to grow their own operation and pull out of using ups

    I’m just wondering where and when the first Amazon driver will be shot and killed for driving up to someone’s house out in the country late at night.
