Amazon is constantly trying to improve their business, and now they’re innovating in ways we haven’t ever seen before. This is great for them as well as their customers because it brings them significant benefits that other companies just can’t compete with. And that’s why we’re getting Amazon cards, after all. One of Amazon’s main focuses right now is to create its own (even quicker) shipping approach. They are also currently looking to implement their cashierless technology in movie theaters.
Why is this a problem?
Based on Amazon, it seems that the fulfillment and shipping costs of one-day shipping are much higher. Up to 50% more shipping and fulfillment has been done by the company in the past 3 months, which comes out to around $9.6 billion in shipping alone. This also includes its expansion in the logistics business since they’re trying to create their own one day delivery system without having to rely on third parties.
Customers obviously enjoy the idea of having the two day delivery during the busy seasons go from 2 days down to 1. That means investing a lot in its logistics, which is not only an important aspect of their business but also their new venture into one day shipping. Obviously doing that type of thing is not going to be an easy task to achieve, but they’re hoping all their hard work will pay off substantially in the future.
Will this expansion happen?
Amazon relies on people continually buying more and more stuff, and they also rely on customers wanting their products as fast as possible. There’s an urgency to receive the product quickly, Amazon knows that and that’s why they are actively investing in this. Amazon is also working with using drones for delivery, and anything else that may speed up the delivery process. It’s clear that the company is constantly trying to improve, and customers are bound to reap the benefits. I mean, who doesn’t want to order something while sitting on the couch at night and have it waiting for them when they get up the next morning?
In some regions, Amazon already delivers the same day, in as quickly as a few hours. So they already know this can be done. It’s simply trying to figure out how to expand this to every location. It’s a great opportunity for Amazon to make customers even happier than they already are with them. And while it’s a major investment for them, there’s no doubt it’ll be worth it. There’s a reason why so many people flock to Amazon to make their purchases. People love getting the items they buy as quickly as possible. Now there will soon be even more of reason to choose Amazon for your online shopping!
