Amazon’s profit hinges on ever-faster delivery services. Will the company insource shipping?
Today, top shipping companies like FedEx count Amazon among its best customers. But could this partnership soon devolve into competition? In this somewhat speculative essay, Bloomberg Businessweek’s Devin Leonard examines the degree to which Amazon’s growth is tied to the continued development of the superfast delivery options available to its Prime members. Given these facts, Leonard offers evidence in favor of the notion that Amazon’s next business target may be the shipping industry. getAbstract recommends this article to shipping industry professionals and Amazon fans.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why Amazon Prime Service is responsible for Amazon’s growth,
- How Prime delivery has expanded in recent years and could develop in the future, and
- How Amazon could one day compete directly with its current shipping partners.
