FedEx Express, the company's air cargo segment, has ended its relationship with Amazon.According to FedEx's most recent quarterly report, the company certainly needs fewer Amazon-like customers — ones with huge volumes but low margins.Package volume through FedEx's non-overnight air deliveries has jumped by 24%, but revenue per package has decreased by 7%."Amazon packages are very small, and they don't take up a whole lot of space, but at the same time there's not a whole lot of money to be made by moving them," Cathy Roberson, an analyst with Logistics Trends & Insights LLC, told Business Insider.The Memphis, Tennessee-based package carrier's segment of US deferred packages (non-priority shipments) jumped by 24%.FedEx 2019 Q4 earnings, Rachel Premack/Business Insider
Completely driverless trucks are cruising down Florida highways, courtesy of Starsky Robotics.The startup this morning revealed that one of its commercial Volvo semis traveled 9.4 miles along Florida’s Turnpike on June 16 without a safety driver, in a pilot it’s calling the first of its kind.On the route, Starsky’s 18-wheeler successfully navigated a rest area, merged onto the highway, changed lanes, and maintained a speed of 55 miles per hour.Starsky leverages a team of teleoperators to guide its trucks through tricky situations, and this time was no different.The latest experiment follows on the heels of a small-scale deployment in February 2018, during which one of Starsky’s trucks drove fully unmanned for seven miles at 25 miles per hour on a closed road in Florida .Last month, the company claims it set a record for the fastest driverless road-legal vehicle when a truck reached 55 miles per hour on a closed portion of the Selmon Expressway outside Tampa.

At Uber’s Elevate summit in Washington, DC earlier this month, researchers, industry leaders and engineers gathered to celebrate the approaching advent of on-demand air service.For Dr. Anita Sengupta, co-founder and Chief Product Office at Detroit’s Airspace Experience Technologies (abbreviated ASX), it was an event full of validation of her company’s specific approach to making electric vertical take-off and landing craft a working, commercially viable reality.ASX’s eVTOL design is a tilt-wing design, which is distinct from the tilt-rotor design you might see on some of the splashier concept vehicles in the category.The benefits of ASX’s tilt-wing choice, according to Sengupta, is speed to market and compatibility with existing regulatory and pilot licensing frameworks – and that’s why ASX could be providing cargo transport service relatively quickly for paying customers, with passenger travel to follow once regulators and the public get comfortable with the idea.“So we would not be classified as a rotorcraft, we’d be classified as a fixed wing aircraft with multi-engine, just with obviously special certification features for the VTOL capability.That not only makes it easier to use for pilots with more conventional training and experience, but it also means it can slot into existing infrastructure relatively easily and make use of underused regional airports that already dot the U.S.
SpaceX has managed to do another thing which seemed audacious and highly unlikely after a few early botched attempts – it used a ship at sea to catch the falling nosecone that shielded the cargo aboard its Falcon Heavy rocket during launch.The maneuver saw a SpaceX -owned barge called Ms. Tree rigged with a giant net slung across four large protruding beams navigate to a point off the Florida coast in the Atlantic Ocean to await the SpaceX fairing’s return once it separated from the rocket.Falcon Heavy launched from Kennedy Space Center last night for its STP-2 mission.Ms. Tree (née Mr. Steven) had made a long trip to make the catch, relocating from the West Coast to the East via the Panama Canal earlier in the year to put it in place to make some attempts at catching SpaceX rockets launched from Florida, after beginning its career serving the launches that take place from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.The boat was put into service during a SpaceX launch from Vandenberg for the first time in February 2017, but the fairing missed the net and the boat, and the same is true for three subsequent attempts in 2018, during which SpaceX also decked the boat out with larger nets to give it a better chance of success.This is a big deal for SpaceX because it likely makes re-using the fairings much more feasible.
Beginning June 27, Amazon will start daily operations out of Stevens Anchorage International Airport — one of the 20-plus US airports from which Amazon Air flies.It does not appear that the move points to Amazon's desire to cater to Alaska's 737,000 residents.Amazon Air is adding another gateway to its network of airports: Anchorage, Alaska.Amazon's in-house air cargo fleet, which will total 70 planes by 2021, is key to the e-commerce behemoth's plan to achieve one-day shipping for its Prime members this year."We're thrilled to bring Prime members in Alaska their packages faster," an Amazon spokesperson told Business Insider in a statement.Read more: FedEx no longer will fly your Amazon packages — and now pressure is mounting on the company as it gears up its in-house air-freight network
SpaceX is going to launch a Falcon Heavy rocket for only the third time ever tonight, should all go according to the current mission plan.The launch, set to take place during a four-hour launch window that opens at 11:30 PM EDT (8:30 PM PDT) tonight, will lift off from Launch Complex 39A at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center.On its first-ever nighttime launch, Falcon Heavy’s STP-2 mission will carry a cargo made up of a number of payloads from commercial customers, as well as from the U.S. Department of Defence, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and NASA.The mission involves putting 24 different spacecraft into orbit, along three separate orbital paths.One of the is an experimental research satellite for the Air Force Research Laboratory, and NASA’s payload includes four different experimental craft, which the agency detailed last month.It’ll also carry LightSail 2, a crowdfunded spacecraft spearheaded by Bill Nye’s Planetary Society, which will make its way through space using the literal solar wind beneath its massive sail.
Sunday is gone and Monday is here.To ring in the week, please join us in welcoming the latest addition to the shedload of shame that is The Register's Who, Me?Today's toe-curler comes from a reader we shall refer to as "Geoff" who, as a newly qualified COBOL and Assembly-language programmer, was working for what he told us was "the biggest bank in the country."Those being very different times, he "took the previous day's transactions for the whole bank, formatted them as per the bulk-load requirement, and saved the file".After all, you can't beat real-world data, can you?And this, as Geoff explained, was as real world as it got: "This represented about 25 million transactions with a total value in the billions, quite literally."
International shipping giant FedEx is showing it’s serious about attracting the ecommerce crowd after a high-profile termination of one of its contracts with Amazon to provide delivery using its express air service in the US.FedEx is now offering the same two-day express air shipping direct to some customers for the same price it usually charges for ground service, which is typically much less expensive, the New York Times reports.FedEx is offering the price cut in order to better compete with rival UPS, the report claims, and to help refactor its product with ecommerce sellers in mind.These include large competitors to Amazon, including Walmart and Walgreens, as well as smaller customers.Note that FedEx will still act as a carrier for Amazon even once its Express contract comes to an end this month, providing last-mile ground shipping.Meanwhile, Amazon is expanding its own cargo air fleet, with 15 more planes joining its network and a goal of operating a total of 70 planes by 2021.
Amazon leased 10,000 branded trailers to haul your Prime deliveries.It launched its own freight brokerage service in late 2016 or early 2017, according to a recent FreightWaves report.Freight brokers match shipments with truckers who can move the goods.And trucking executives told FreightWaves that contracts with Amazon are "heavily one-sided" towards the e-commerce company.Scott Leckliter, an Iowa-based independent trucker, checked it out."As long as you pay me market value, I'm good.

The city of Southampton sees an awful lot of ships.There are cruise ships, cargo ships and, frequently, ships carrying lots of cars as they get imported and exported to and from the UK.We know this, as we’ve walked up and down the quayside enough times to spot the difference between fresh sea air and cruddy marine diesel fumes.This model comes with a larger 62kWh battery, which means more range at 239 miles on one charge compared to the 168-mile capacity of the other model.And, once you’ve got it up to cruising speed the car is as good, if not better than its lower-powered offering.We also made good use of the Nissan ProPilot suite of driver assist goodies.
Breaking into new markets can be hard, so it helps partner with a group that has experience in these new markets -- it's important to play to the crowd, after all.Waymo is looking for new places to put its tech, and it's leaning on help from the Renault Nissan Alliance to help it get there.Waymo announced on Thursday that it has entered into a partnership with the Renault Nissan Alliance.The goal of the partnership is to look at driverless mobility options for passengers and cargo in both France and Japan, the Alliance's home markets.The first step in this partnership will be figuring out the regulatory and commercial hurdles required to launch such services in those locations."This is an ideal opportunity for Waymo to bring our autonomous technology to a global stage, with an innovative partner," said John Krafcik, CEO of Waymo, in a statement.
We recently came across a news that Amazon is planning to build ‘Uber for trucking app’.The news took the entire transportation and app industry by storm.Amazon has plans to launch the app somewhere in the summer of 2017.Well’ it isn’t just the Amazon coming with the concept, the commuting giant Uber is also planning to land into the trucking business after getting an enormous success with its taxi app development.A deeper look into the trucking businessTrucking in last six decades has changed steadily.The two major changes that we can recall comprise Interstate highway system and deregulation through the introduction of Federal Aid Highway Act of 1956 and Motor Carrier Act which pushed the trucking prices down by 50%-75%.The changes while on one hand portray the sturdy rise of transportation and logistics business, but if we look at the Uber’s progress on it, we have figures narrating an entirely different saga.Uber’s Track RecordSomewhere in January 2015, the company launched its Uber Cargo program, however, things didn’t work the way they were supposed to and they had to end the operations.Another Uber operation named, ‘UberRUSH’ designed to deliver parcel delivery services is going through serious competition from postmates.Having its deep pockets with the likes of Tencent, Apple, and Alibaba, Didi Chuxing well showcased its expertise and infallibility of Uber by beating it in the Chinese market.We can’t disregard these pointsUber recently took over the self-driving truck startup company Otto for $680 million.The intention behind is clear; the company is focused on changing and ruling the evolving market of transportation and logistics business.While on another hand, a few years back, somewhere in 2012 Amazon acquired the Kiva Systems for $775 million.Behemoths like Uber and Amazon are after creating a robust trucking business app due to many reasons.First, to get the first mover advantage since there’s no major player in this niche.And secondly, because it would revolutionize the trucking and shipping business in the same way Uber revolutionized the cab industry.But how?Below we have mentioned benefits of having an app like Uber for truck business for the owners, shippers, and the drivers.
Uber is (re)introducing a handful of new features for its driver app today in a pilot aimed at luring more drivers onto its platform — and keeping them there.Gridwise, for example, uses data and real-time alerts to boost Uber drivers’ earnings, while Cargo lets drivers earn extra cash by selling stuff to passengers — in partnership with Uber, of course.Elsewhere, PredictHQ emerged from stealth last year with $10 million in funding to help companies such as Uber forecast demand surges by aggregating data from myriad sources.The new pilot feature, called “top opportunities,” will assist drivers in planning their availability around the anticipated best earning times — which could be based on time of day, weather forecast, or scheduled events.This is similar to the “trip planner” feature that launched with the upgraded Uber driver app last April and shows hourly trends and promotions, as well as letting drivers set preferences for their trips.Top opportunities takes things a step further, however, with data such as peak earning times, upcoming events, and more provided via an in-app feed that is visible before a driver elects to start their shift.
Amazon announced on Tuesday that it will add 15 more cargo planes to its fleet, leased through GE Capital Aviation Services.By 2021, Amazon will have 70 planes in its in-house air fleet."These new aircraft create additional capacity for Amazon Air, building on the investment in our Prime Free One-Day program," Dave Clark, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Operations at Amazon, said in a press release.Wolfe Research; Andy Kiersz/Business InsiderIt's yet another sign of Amazon's growing interest in completing its own deliveries.Amazon's worldwide shipping costs have grown fifteenfold from 2009 to 2018.
Amazon on Tuesday said it agreed to lease 15 more Boeing cargo planes from GE Capital Aviation Services, helping the e-commerce titan continue growing its air fleet so it can speed up deliveries.The 15 Boeing 737-800 planes are in addition to the five planes Amazon already agreed to lease from GECAS earlier this year.The company has 42 planes flying today, and by 2021 it will operate 70 planes.Amazon expanded its fleet as part of its expensive effort to transition its Prime two-day shipping program to one day in the US.That work is already resulting in packages arriving earlier at Prime customers' doorsteps and may help Amazon maintain its competitive edge against rivals like Walmart.Amazon said in April it was spending $800 million this quarter to bolster its shipping infrastructure to support the change.
Following news from earlier this month that FedEx was dumping Amazon from its air cargo service, Amazon this morning announced the expansion of its own air delivery network, Amazon Air.These will join the five Boeing 737-800’s already leased from GECAS, announced earlier this year.The aircraft will fly out of over 20 U.S. air gateways in the Amazon Air network.In addition, Amazon says it will open more air facilities in 2019, including at Fort Worth Alliance Airport, Wilmington Air Park, and Chicago Rockford International Airport.Meanwhile, the main Air Hub at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport will open in 2021.“The capability of the 737-800 freighter will further Amazon’s ability to provide reliable and regional delivery to its customers for years to come.”
Amazon has announced plans to expand its air cargo network by more than a quarter to 70 planes by 2021, after signing a deal with GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) to lease 15 Boeing 737-800 aircraft.The ecommerce giant first entered the air cargo realm nearly three years ago with the launch of Amazon Prime Air, a service that kicked off with 40 Boeing 767 freighter aircraft.Amazon announced it was adding 10 Boeing 767-300 aircraft to the mix back in December, followed by five Boeing 737-800s in March.It’s worth noting that Amazon ditched the “Prime” from its cargo service name sometime in 2017, though somewhat confusingly the company still operates a separate Amazon Prime Air brand covering its conceptual drone delivery service.Beyond planes, Amazon has been pushing deeper into cargo and delivery services.It has for a while operated a peer-to-peer (P2P) delivery program called Flex, allowing anyone who owns a car to deliver for Amazon in their spare time.
