Just over 2-years since Amazon first detailed its in-house delivery service, new reports today point to the online giant backing off its plans of competing with UPS and FedEx. Amazon Shipping is slated to be paused starting in June, according to reports, as the fallout from COVID-19 continues to reach all areas of our daily lives.

Hit the jump for everything we know at this time and a few potential scenarios for how this will play out over the course of 2020.
