Was just reading about this company today. It seems it will generate more competition to challenge the prices currently offered by the USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc.http://postandparcel.info/42987/new...dex-and-ups/
However, one interesting quote from the above article suggests that:
As well as Blue and fellow third-party partners, the Seattle-based company will be working closely with USPS itself, which will provide the "last mile" delivery for domestic parcels and the "middle mile" for parcels sent internationally, with foreign posts providing last-mile deliveries in 168 countries.
Their website is already launched at this link:http://equaship.com/
It will be interesting to see how this company measures up with the big shippers when they get their infrastructure up and running.
