Amazon is setting up its own delivery system in the US

Things have really been escalating for the online retailr giant Amazon and they dont seem to stop at anything. They have been taking things further up the advancement stages and the recent news update comes from Wall Street Journal that claims that Amazon has been on its way to testing its very own US delivery system in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The job listing describes it as the Last Mile and the system has been brought into place to compete with the well established shippers such as FedEx and UPS. Though we have been hearing these names in the package carrier industry since almost forever, yet they have not been performing like an average daily customer would expect and according to Amazon these carriers are increasing costs and are not always meeting the capacity and are "impeding innovation in delivery services." This clearly shows that Amazon beleives that it can outperform these two well known names and can certainly provide a better shipment experience.

It can be said that Amazon is playing it safe and there isnt much risk invloved because the company has been familiar with this platform and it has already been testing the delivery service in UK and even invested in a local parcel service. And since they talked about innovation, we are sure that they are on their way to offering some more service features which current package carriers dont.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
