Given its importance to me, and the fact that I was off that day, I stayed home the entire day, waiting to make sure that I personally received the package because I didn’t want the carrier to leave it in front of the door, as they do sometimes, if nobody opened the door as fast as they would want, and I didn’t want to have to drive to the post office if I missed the delivery.

With Amazon 's move to acquire more of the market, these competitors need to be on the lookout because portions of their market share can be taken away.

The market cap numbers are not a good basis to judge market share on since FedEx and UPS have the majority of the market in the shipping industry. FedEx and UPS are the major competitors against Amazon and its new shipping department. FedEx and UPS had the most recent annual net income of $50.3 billion and $58.3 billion respectively. They represent the majority of packages delivery from individuals, businesses, and online retailers.
