Amazon sucks. They're nothing but a wing of the democrat party. Besides that, I know 2 fedex drivers and they are sick and tired of all the amazon paks. One of my friends delivers for usps and he says that 90 persent of his drop offs on weekends is from fedex and ups. They say when the day is over the usps HAS to take the pakages and then deliver them. Thats why you see mail man out on Sundays.

with supply chain issues and local grocery stores out of product, I find Amazon has most of what I want and will get it to me next day, free shipping. And cheaper.

I have a box at the UPS store. All my packages get shipped there. I also have no weekend deliveries with Amazon. I can see some idiot throwing the package by the door of the stores when it closes early on Saturday or closed on Sunday.

I’m guessing fedex and ups negotiated a deal with usps. And given that usps is a government entity, they got short end of the stick.

FedEx is not very reliable this time of year. I find the post office most reliable for getting Items delivered on time and to my address.

FBA as a rule doesn't use FedEx but Amazon will allow sellers to utilize FedEx for items that aren't FBA - when and IF FedEx is meeting delivery standards for OTD in that area/for that customer.

FedEx, UPS, Amazon all utilize USPS for rural and delivery areas where the don't have density themselves or where they need additional capacity. Without those 3 dumping into USPS, USPS would likely be hemorrhaging worse than it is.

Density rules the final mile game. Hell - Amazon delivers more packages on Amazon trucks than FedEx delivers (total) in the US. That's serious volume.

No complaints about Amazon’s own delivery service. They run through here all day long. When you get the others involved, stuff can happen. Need to pay attention when you order.

Whatever you think of Bezos’ politics and persona, his business most definitely doesn’t suck. Since the vast majority of other large businesses are run by equally Liberal fuggers, I’m going with the ones who do a good job. Amazon is one of those, and saves me a lot of money and especially, time and gas.

Yet they are working. If they don't like it, I'm sure Fedex can find someone else to take the pay and bennies. I've never yet worked a job that was all gravy. If it wasn't for Amazon, they might not be working at all.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.

Our rural mail lady who usually finishes her 55 mile route by 3 PM & has to make four trips to her PO just to refill her Jeep cherokee with Amazon packages. At least twice a week, the Amazon delivery van is late, & she has to redeliver before her day ends.

FedEx and XPO are offering Furloughs over the holidays to drivers/warehouse people to "right size" the labor pool. That is - busiest time of the year and they're letting people take time off.

That was once the case here, and our carrier said she had to make a delivery plan herself as Amazon pretty much just dumped the stuff on her without one. That seems to be over now; Amazon is local and does pretty much all their own deliveries now. I’ve asked several drivers how they like their jobs and all have been very positive.

Given LTL's exposure to manufacturing - today's job prints should have any LTL driver hoping they retain their position. Amazon packages might be the thing keeping them busy enough to be employed.
