FedEX cuts shipping ties with Amazon

FedEx has ended its ground shipping relationship with Amazon. The move comes two months after FedEx stopped moving Amazon’s air cargo.

FedEx views Amazon as a clear threat to its future profit margins as Amazon has been rapidly up-scaling its own logistics operations.

Shipping company FedEx has severed business ties with Amazon.

Last June, FedEx ceased air cargo shipping for Amazon. FedEx said at the time that Amazon’s business wasn’t deemed to be ‘significantly beneficial’ to its bottom line as traffic was too minuscule.

FedEx said it is moving to focus on the broader e-commerce market.
