FedEx is rolling seven days a week as online shopping expands. As a reaction to the Amazon shipping model, everyone is trying to keep up.   This new service will begin in January 2020.  Online shoppers shop seven days a week, so it fits what the online shoppers want.

Online shoppers want their packages as quickly as possible.  Sunday will now have shipping via FedEx very soon.  The competition for shipping is fierce right now. It’s not just affecting FedEx, the US postal service, and UPS’s models.  Now the fast food restaurants and large retailers are also changing or planning to change their delivery models to keep up.  For instance, McDonald’s can now be picked up by Uber and Kroger is testing self-driving cars to deliver groceries in some markets.  Amazon, one-day delivery, announced this year. Target and Walmart are offering curbside delivery.

Amazon built out a new model for logistics.  They are building more warehouses closer to cities, and they are having their workers become entrepreneurs and starting their own trucking companies.  The result would be that Amazon will have their logistics built and will not need UPS, FedEx, and the US Postal Service.
