Amazon is moving away from USPS and UPS for its in-house delivery network — but the ‘sloppier’ system may be delaying your packages

  • Amazon is building up a huge in-house delivery network that now moves the majority of its packages. It is moving away from FedEx,USPS, and UPS as a result.
  • However, a new report from Rakuten Intelligence said Amazon’s percentage of late deliveries has doubled from 2017 to 2019 as the retailer increasingly turns to its own delivery network.
  • In 2017, from January 1 to mid-June, an average of 4.6% of items were delivered late, compared with an average of 16.6% in 2019.
  • Despite this, some experts say Amazon’s network will someday compete against FedEx and UPS.

Amazons’ managers don’t falsify their delivery scans the way USPS does. Come on Amazon get your door delivery up and running nationwide!! You can do it! You have the necessary capital to expand your services. No reason Amazon can’t be making last mile deliveries by Christmas 2019!

AND management also falsifies or ‘mistakenly’ reports carriers actual time worked…

Must be another disgruntled carrier that hates their job but loves to blame management

can deliver it cheaper than the PO that had to loose money on them.. Let it go.

UPS has been around since 1907. To build a company that can immerge, evolve and adapt to change is second to none!

UPS, in fact has been around a long time but the Service part is sadly lacking anymore. Most Managers have little to none delivery experience. The long term Company outlook is now short term what is the price of the stock and what is the dividend? Longterm does not look good for this Company

USPS has been around even longer. They have out delivered UPS and FedEx forever. If your pkg is delayed from USPS its because Amazon couldnt get it to them ontime.

Amazon will have trouble hiring drivers. They’re to picky. I have 25 years courier experience. 4 attempts to apply. No response.

Looking at the graph provided, it sure seems that Amazon is increasing its share of deliveries, but, so is the USPS! To the tune of 44% of all Amazon pkgs. Kind of puts the lie To the notion that Amazon is turning away from the USPS

The quicker Amazon dumps USPS for the final delivery the happier many of us will be! USPS seems to regularly falsify delivery scans, claiming a product was left in/by the mailbox when it was not. It usually shows up a day late, but meanwhile no one seems to be accountable and the Amazon Prime customer ends up paying for slower-than-promised delivery. I’m going to cancel my Prime membership if this doesn’t improve shortly.

USPS does not falsify. Real time gps shows the exact time and location on the scan. As a carrier I know. Stop speeding lies please

Stupid people encouraging more minimum wage jobs with no benefits, the Amazon way. I ship for my business and have had zero problems with USPS. This government hatred is going to be the end of this country.

I for one stopped buying from Amazon ,most merchandise can be shipped from manufacturers/merchants.
