Reportedly Amazon Thinking on Lines of Leasing Planes for Faster Delivery
Amazon.com Inc. is well known for testing new tactics to perk up its delivery system of goods to the customer's door steps. This time reportedly, the online retailer is considering leasing twenty Boeing Co. 767 freighter jets to gain greater amount of control over its costs and delivery system.
On Thursday, it was reported that Amazon is trying out its own service on a limited basis which will help it to decide whether to proceed ahead next year or not.
The retailer known for its tech-savvy approach seems to be interested in developing its cargo operations due to the increasing number of consumer orders online. That's more applicable for the holiday shopping season when the traffic grows considerably.
Having a control over its own planes as well as crew, will give Amazon an edge over time and will shave off costs while delivering goods to its customers. That will also allow the company to keep its ware houses better stocked.
As of now Amazon has to depend on it main shippers FedEx Corp and United Parcel Service Inc. which often leads to delay resulting from the holiday rush.
Amazon which dreams of instant delivery through drones one day sets its standard for fast and inexpensive delivery in the fast growing e-commerce industry.
