Shares of FedEx and UPS are falling following a report that powerhouse Amazon is readying its own delivery service. That said, Amazon has reportedly been working on making its own logistics network a reality after a disappointing holiday season in 2013 during which countless packages were delivered late.
United Parcel Service Inc and FedEx Corp shares fell 2 percent on Friday, after a report said Amazon.com Inc is preparing to launch a delivery service for businesses, which would directly compete with the USA package delivery companies. Amazon has been pushing more aggressively into delivery for a while. Amazon has helped fuel the boom in online shopping, but all those millions of packages are straining the networks of UPS and FedEx.

Amazon is likely to remain a major customer for UPS and FedEx for quite some time, complicating their relationship. While there's no guarantee that SWA will be as successful as AWS, it just goes to show that Amazon is going to with the tried-and-tested method.
Others think Amazon may be trying to talk down delivery rates and get better service.
