Amazon to launch delivery service

I think we all saw this coming, but Amazon is said to be launching their own delivery service to compete with UPS and FedEx. Not surprisingly, Amazon ships a ton of packages and has enough items going out on a daily basis to setup their own service in larger volume areas. Not that it's that bold of a prediction, but I think we'll see more Amazon trucks on the road in the next year.

TechCrunch has the story.

   Amazon is gearing up to compete directly with UPS and FedEx, according to a new Wall Street Journal report. The so-called “Shipping with Amazon” program will be an end-to-end shipping solution, with pickups from businesses and shipments made to consumers, per the report.   The timeframe for rollout is soon, too: Amazon is said to be readying the service for its first launch in LA in the “coming weeks,” starting, not surprisingly, with companies that sell stuff via its website. After its initial launch in LA, Amazon will look to expand it out to other cities, possibly as soon as later this year, the WSJ says.
