Amazon’s ability to become a third-party logistics provider further drives its goal of being the dominant retailer, if not the dominant business, worldwide. Shares of shipping leaders United Parcel Service, Inc. (NYSE:UPS) and FedEx Corporation (NYSE:FDX) fell on the news, though FDX stock has recovered most of its early losses.
