[Business Story] Amazon: to infinity and beyond
Since a few months, Amazon has been conducting trial of running its own fleet of jet freighters. It recently announced that it will lease twenty Boeing 767 jet freighters to move goods around to major distribution centers in the US. This move will allow Amazon to control costs and avoid getting caught unable to deliver orders.
These planes won’t replace but supplement deliveries made by United Parcel Service, FedEx or the U.S. Postal service already used by Amazon.com. This will also help Amazon to make its logistics system more efficient without having to take on FedEx and UPS which will require a huge investment.
