Amazon has a specialized shipping system to deliver their products, and now they will be adding jets to that delivery system.
Amazon-branded retailers have planned to improve their shipping network. According to The Seattle Times, Jeff Bezos & Co. is thinking to lease a fleet of Boeing jets to manage the air cargo duties. The company is trying to avoid the twinge of using UPS and other carriers; the company has already assigned a team of trailers on the road to carry loads to its distribution centers.
The online retailing giant is thinking to rent 20 Boeing 767s for their task. By Doing this the company will have more control over delivery times, and it will potentially help avoid cargo services of UPS, FedEx, and the USPS. To get packages to your door, Amazon still relies on those outfits but the decision seems like the company is becoming more modernized in their supply chain. However, The Seattle Times also reports that “The retailer could open up extra space on its jets to other companies, which would put it in direct competition with the likes of UPS, FedEx and others.”
It seems that the ever inventive Amazon is taking steps to ensure they remain number one.
