The retailer is looking to expand yet again, this time into the shipping business alongside competitors like FedEx and UPS

Amazon continues to expand its services in order to keep up in the on-demand world it created, where customers can have whatever they want delivered at the push of a button. However, one of the biggest hassles with buying anything from the retail giant is shipping. According to The Wall Street Journal, Amazon might be looking to end the frustration by getting into the shipping business themselves.

The program is currently called “Shipping With Amazon” and is set to start in Los Angeles before branching out if successful. Products on available only on Amazon, including third-party items, will be eligible to be shipped through the service, though there are plans to expand in the future. The service will also attempt to undercut the costs of shipping through two of its current partners: FedEx and UPS. This undertaking will be a massive investment, even with the many warehouses and shipping centers that the company has throughout the United States.
