I wonder if Google has considered “joining them” in that space? I mean, Alphabet has arguably the most advanced self driving car in the world. Amazon in turn has endless struggles with package carriers’ capacity to keep up with demand; many carriers have a strong love/hate relationship with Amazon for this reason.
Amazon is already experimenting with drones. Why shouldn’t Alphabet get in on the package delivery industry too? Then both companies win, and we get to keep using all the wonderful free services Google provides. 😉
