  • FedEx dumps Amazon from air cargo service as rivalry grows

    Amazon packages will take their last US flight on FedEx planes later this month.

    FedEx (FDX) announced Friday that it isn't renewing its US contract with Amazon to transport packages on FedEx Express. The move comes as FedEx and Amazon compete more directly in delivery logistics.
    Amazon is under increased pressure to deliver packages quickly. In April, Amazon said it planned to begin delivering packages to Prime customers in one day rather than two. FedEx followed up in May with plans to deliver seven days a week.
    FedEx said in a press release it plans to focus on serving the broader e-commerce market with continued partnerships with brands such as Walmart and Target.The company said Amazon accounted for less than 1.3% of its total revenue in 2018.

    I got a number of Amazon same-day deliveries yesterday...on a Sunday.

      Corporate welfare helps, but it was impressive when I needed a new capacitor for my A/C to keep from roasting to death and it was at my house in 16 hours.
