YOU GET A NEW CARR
That is quite possible. Coprorate UPS has their heads in the sand and taking the same approach they had when FedEx began. That approach is to basically ignore them and maybe they'll go away. And they keep claiming that Amazon isn't a threat because they make up only a small percentage of our volume. That would be defensible if Amazon wasn't also competing with many of our retail shippers and winning. Meaning....they are taking volume away from us on two fronts And it will only get worse.I’m not sure exactly on the time frame but I think the more likely scenario is that Amazon buys out Fed Ex and becomes a dominant competitor.
Amazon is a company that will do its best to get cheap labor so I’d expect you’d maybe have better management and I’d imagine more flexible hours. Perhaps have a lot more staffing with less benefits and subpar performance kind of like the employees at Walmart’s.
Delivery would be done with their own vehicles and service wouldn’t be as much as an issue. Not sure how Amazon would handle over 70’s and big bulk but I’d imagine they would have a few trucks for the bigger items. I don’t think Amazon would do the more rural areas either, probably leave the crumbs for UPS to handle mostly because the rural areas aren’t profitable
