Industrial Watch: August 17, 2019

“The effects of e-commerce have yet to cease. For the first time in almost a decade, the United States Postal Service reported a decline in package volume. Delivery services like UPS and FedEx are jumping on the bandwagon amidst the quick-moving era of online shopping, competing for even bigger pieces of the pie. Recently, FedEx reneged on their agreement with Amazon, leaving UPS as the last choice on the field. Will Amazon simply skip the middle man and create their own delivery service? Even so, existing delivery companies interestingly report that Amazon is not a significant enough amount of their revenue to threaten their bottom line, yet.”
