amazon's sales volume and its dependence on ups have grown so great that packages from the e-commerce giant account for as much as one-third of the delivery company's residential loads, says the wall street journal. but don't assume that ups is getting rich on all this business: to provide free shipping to prime members, amazon has driven hard bargains with deliverers, and ups's average revenue on each internet-related package is dropping. one former industry executive doubts ups's margins are as high as 5%, the journal says. so when you drop off an amazon return, the ups store manager isn't thinking "oh great, another cost we have to eat". if they think about it at all, it's the realization that without amazon's business ups would be in a lot of trouble -- $12 billion dollars worth of trouble.
makes sense? good luck out there, and keep your money in your pocket! wait... what?
