I used to work for FedEx (ground and smartpost) Corporate. They would take volume just to fill the hubs at little to no profit. I can't imagine that the amazon deal was very lucrative. As a side note I don't think people realize how small FedEx is compared to UPS. UPS is like maybe 4 times the size.

Just for reference: -FedEx: 41.208B -UPS: 98.159B

Since they are global companies, maybe UPS is 4x bigger in the US. This is not trying to refute anything.

Yeah. that was what I was told by a manager. UPS looks about double the size now: https://www.diffen.com/difference/FedEx_vs_UPS
