Amazon brings Retail Revolution using Logistics

Amazon is on the path to fundamentally changing the way you shop with a few, quiet experiments in logistics. Amazon is hustling logistics players down this road to more customized delivery options as the company seeks to differentiate itself and keep customers under its banner throughout the entire shopping process.

Worried large consumer markets like the U.S. and Europe lack enough sorting and last-mile delivery capacity to take care of the growing number of parcels, Amazon is investing heavily in regional warehouses and information technology. Amazon is rolling out same-day, one-hour, and Sunday delivery services, and even a nascent drone program.

While this doesn’t erase Amazon’s need for other logistics companies (especially in rural areas and at peak times), it puts a dent in demand. The fight is on especially for delivery in the most dense and attractive urban neighborhoods.
