These jobs are tied into customer fulfillment. Amazon is moving toward same day and over night delivery on many orders, instituting a new standard for online purchasing.It's expensive to support fast deliveries and it's sacrificed short term profits to build out this delivery system. Does the North American consumer require fast delivery, a form of instant gratification? I'm not sure, but in the long run, it will be a strong competitive factor. On the other hand, other online retailers may be able to stick with FedEx and UPS and avoid the overhead.
