The global air freight market struggled during the first three months of the year as a slowing trade environment took a toll. Declines in air volumes were reported by DHL, Kuehne + Nagel, Expeditors International and C.H. Robinson Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ: CHRW). DHL attributed its declines to a combination of "selective stance" and strong market levels in the previous year.

While much of the attention is focused on last-mile delivery, it's the companies behind the scene that are most at risk.
Rapid growth and logistics ambitions from a retail behemoth aren’t new. Still, the “Amazon effect” looms large today in the trucking space.
When it comes to posting profits, Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) has been on a roll for the past year. This has been a clear demonstration of the inherent operating leverage in its model. Moreover, management has effectively adapted to shifting conditions and its own massive growth spurt, boosting the profile of Amazon stock.Source: Atomic Taco Via FlickrBut of course, Jeff Bezos is always looking to the long haul. So as revenues in its core e-commerce business have started to trail off, he's looking toward the delivery and fulfillment infrastructures. Investments here should help keep up the gains in AMZN stock.What exactly does this entail? Principally, it's to make one-day delivery the standard option for those with Prime memberships. True, this will not be cheap, as AMZN will need to make significant changes to its platform. On the earnings call, CFO Brian Olsavsky noted that the costs could come to $800 million. He also did not specify when the program will go into effect.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Stocks That Are Soaring This Earnings Season Yet Wall Street responded swiftly. Companies like Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and Target (NYSE:TGT) absorbed the brunt of the damage. It's not surprising. Big-box retailers are only now beginning to compete competently online.Should Amazon make good on the one-day delivery promise, that's a big plus for AMZN stock. The fact of the matter is that they have a deeply-established online consumer base. At the same time, it represents a doozy for Walmart and Target. Both rely on cheaper, and therefore slower shipping options.If matters devolve into a "shipping war," it could disproportionately hurt the brick-and-mortars. Large-Scale Opportunity for AMZN StockInterestingly enough, to pull off this move to one-day delivery, AMZN stock may benefit from the launch of a new business; that is, freight brokerage. Keep in mind that last week, the company launched this venture in Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. Eventually, this foray could turn into another big driver for Amazon stock.To get a sense of the opportunity, just look at Uber's S-1 filing. The ride-sharing firm discusses severe fragmentation in both the freight and product-procurement industries. In the former's case, several hours can sometimes extend into days for shippers to find a driver/truck combo for shipments. What's worse, this process is conducted over the phone, or wait for it … by fax.The latter case is equally terrible. Both procurement specialists and carriers must grind out convoluted deals to find what works. Often times, this involves hours on the phone negotiating pricing and terms. Eventually, these inefficiencies contribute to unnecessary productivity slowdowns.Note that Uber has leveraged its on-demand platform to capitalize on this business. In the latest quarter, the revenues came to $125 million and the network has over 36,000 carriers.That said, AMZN's move into freight brokerage could crimp Uber's plans. It might even impact demand for Uber's initial public offering, and subsequent trades!No doubt, AMZN has tremendous scale and a massive network. The company is also taking a low-cost strategy to the industry, which will likely put significant pressure on legacy operators like C.H. Robinson Worldwide (NASDAQ:CHRW). By driving down margins, this will mean a reduction on shipping costs (these came to $27.7 billion in 2018). And in the coming years, the e-commerce giant could easily increase prices to generate substantial revenues. Bottom Line on Amazon StockPerhaps the most important effort for Amazon stock during the past decade was AWS. The cash flows from this cloud platform have allowed for investment in multiple categories.And yes, the move into freight brokerage has similarities to AWS. Both are the result of Amazon.com's internal needs as well as the leveraging of its e-commerce business.Now, the market opportunity for freight brokerage may not be as big as cloud computing. But then again, it is still significant. After all, CHRW posted revenues of $16.6 billion last year. More importantly, the move into the freight industry is likely to open up more growth in e-commerce while helping to alleviate associated shipping costs.Tom Taulli is the author of High-Profit IPO Strategies, All About Commodities and All About Short Selling.

C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHRW) is not afraid of Amazon.com, Inc.'s (NASDAQL AMZN) entrance into freight brokerage and welcomes the competition, incoming chief executive officer Bob Biesterfeld told Wall Street analysts on the company's earnings call this morning. After prepared remarks by Biesterfeld, John Wiehoff, Robinson's outgoing CEO, and Scott Hagen, the company's controller and interim chief financial officer, the executives answered questions from equities analysts on both secular and cyclical issues.

The world's biggest retailer made a splash in truck brokerage circles after Freight Waves reported on Friday that Amazon's service, launched in a handful of Northeastern states last summer, was discounting market rates by as much as one-third. "The analysis suggesting dramatic undercutting of pricing is false," Amazon said in a statement. Analysts said its fight for a slice of the more than $700 billion (536.8 billion pounds) U.S. companies spend on trucking each year could pose a long-term threat to leading truck brokers like C.H. Robinson Worldwide and United Parcel Service.

Amazon’s ambition to be a logistics giant is no secret—and it hasn’t been for some time. Amazon’s introduction of a trucking brokerage app introduction reinforces risk to freight brokers. FedEx and UPS do more than just brokerage, but they feel the heat from Amazon’s logistics aspirations, too.
