    And UPS helped them start setting up their network. LMFAO. You can’t make this * up.

    I don’t understand why we keep doing business with them, hopefully when the time comes and amazon starts shipping for everyone(not just themselves) we under cut them so bad they can’t do it. We do own all our stuff every single thing they own is leased.

    I think UPS leases most of their buildings.

    Don't think so. They will lease for short term but they also tend to buy a lot of property for future expansions.

    If that is true then UPS is the proud owner of the worst looking building in the local industrial park.

    They might own the whole industrial park and lease out the better places to other companies.

    They do own the lot next door but refuse to expand on it because the city insists any new building must have a blacktopped parking lot. :-)

    Not the 120,000,000 dollar building I'm in.

    They will never ship for their competitors.

    Rick Ross I'm into distribution!!

    This guy is on crack!

    I'm sure some areas may be doing 50% of their packages but it's probably only 10% of their packages by volume. They aren't delivering anything large in my area.

    I live on a cul-de-sac. Was outside the other day. Saw an amazon driver park in front of the house across the street from me. She got out and dropped their package on their porch, got back in her van, drove to the end of the street, came back and parked in front of my house and brought me a package. Makes sense to me. lol.

    A Fedex (express) driver I talk to on my route told me mngmnt pulled their drivers into a meeting today to give them a heads-up; they're expecting to be delivering Amazon again before the holiday is out, and Fedex won't be extending their previous arrangement's cut rates for 'em this time. Smart.

    Why is UPS still refusing to hold Bezos hostage too? Nothing to gain and lots to lose by continuing to service Amazon as we do.

    Goofy things happen. My record you having to go back to the same house with another package was 4 times. (That was back before some electronic techy thing told you how many packages you had for a certain stop). Going back a second time was quite common.
