business news in context, analysis with attitude

•  From FreightWaves:

" Inc. has launched a non-urgent ground delivery service that appears to be aimed in part at shippers that don’t use Amazon for retail ordering or its fulfillment services.

"The service, called Amazon Shipping, is designed for shippers placing orders through Amazon’s marketplace, a shipper’s own website and 'other selling channels' … Ground deliveries will be made in five days or less."
