Hello and welcome back to another episode of “The Freight Project Podcast!”

On today’s The Freight Project Podcast episode I welcome Ruthie Bowles, founder of content marketing company, Defy The Status Quo.

Is Amazon Ready to Compete with Logistics Services Providers?

In the episode, you’ll get to know about Ruthie’s background in the Army & her interest in writing led her to a career in content marketing in the supply chain. We’ll have Ruthie on today to talk about Amazon’s new foray into competing with logistics services providers, like carriers and fulfillment companies.

In this “The Freight Project Podcast” episode you’ll hear:

  • Why Amazon’s shipping costs rose so much that it’s driving them to consider insourcing more of their logistics processes vs. outsourcing to logistics services providers.
  • Will Amazon put a dent into the big logistics services providers like they did book stores?
  • How Amazon in-sourcing might impact other shippers, capacity, and the strategies of logistics services providers at large.

We hope you enjoy this episode of The Freight project podcast!
