ATSG, and I assume any others that are in discussions with them, are under non-disclosure agreements and can't say anything.

The guys flying these trips say that the pallets are all covered so they can't see the packages for any identifying information. Everyone assumes it is Amazon but nobody knows for sure and, anyone who does, is under NDA.

I've received three recall notices, one from ABX and two from ATI, which were likely driven by this business. It's fun turning them down... LOL

Hmmmm. It would seems to me that it wouldn't pay to try and replace existing vendors for the "last mile" of delivery. But that doesn't mean that there isn't segments that they can't do more cost effectively.
