Paul Page wrote Today’s Logistics Report  (Oct 25, 2019) in the Wall Street Journal:

« Expanding its own shipping services is taking a toll on Amazon.com’s bottom line. The e-commerce market leader’s profit fell 26% in the 3rd quarter even as revenue grew 24%, the WSJ’s Dana Mattioli reports, as world-wide shipping costs soared 46%. »

« The $9.6 billion in shipping expenses was even more than Amazon spent in last year’s busy fourth quarter and a sign of the tumultuous changes underway in the company’s logistics operations as it handles more of its own packages. »
