Yes it was a good read. After the failure of December 2013, you knew it was only going to be so long before Amazon moved into handling the delivery of its own products. I don't see that being viable though for much of middle America though. Maybe some spots here and there but not in other areas. I don't think they will be able to afford to have the extensive network that USPS, UPS and FedEx have to cover the entire country..

I thought it was interesting that FedEx came out and said that no customer was more than 3% of its business. I don't find that hard to believe. Amazon delivers everything to me by UPS.

Deliveries from Amazon come UPS. Deliveries from suppliers are mostly UPS, some USPS, and the rest FedEx that hands off to USPS for last-mile delivery. Either way, the stuff comes in the mail or the little brown truck.
