Why FedEx Dumped Amazon

It’s no secret by now that Amazon and FedEx have parted ways–first by dropping Express shipments for Amazon, then as a partnered carrier for inbound FBA shipments, and finally end-customer deliveries). A lot of folks still seem to think this is entirely Amazon’s fault (it’s easy to blame the behemoth). In reality, FedEx should shoulder a lot of the blame in FedEx no longer being an option for customer deliveries, express deliveries, and (often cheaper) inbound-to-warehouse shipments for 3rd-party sellers.
