We knew it would happen. Just not how and when.
On Prime Day Amazon formally launched their air cargo service with a network of about 40 Boeing 767-300s. They offer supplemental shipping capacity to boost the services provided by UPS, FedEx, USPS, and some 20 others. Supplemental? For now, at least.
With Amazon’s shipping costs increasing over 40% in 2016, it was just a matter of time. You’ll see Amazon continue to rework, renegotiate, restructure, redefine logistics as they have since their launch.
You may not have a fleet of 40 767’s to supplement your carriers, but there are other ways to trim expenses. Consider a 30-day trial, or a no-cost consult to learn how Direct-Recovery can help reduce your transport spend.
