The rise of e-commerce spurred by Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) has rattled retail and grocery cages including the likes of Wal-Mart (WMT), Macy’s (NYSE: M), Target (TGT), Kroger (KR) and Best Buy (BBY). Chandler-based logistics company OnTrac is hiring more than 700 new workers to help keep up with growth and the influx of packages from e-commerce purchases. OnTrac provides small parcel logistics and shipping serves in eight Western states including California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Idaho and Colorado.
