The e-commerce giant intends to challenge UPS and Fedex, launching a new delivery service.Amazon wants to be able to deliver your packages anytime, anywhere, with the fastest service possible.
Instead of relying on external carriers like UPS, FedEx or United Parcel Service, Amazon has decided to deliver its own packages.
While the prices given by the carriers can be volatile, Amazon wishes to create a more stable and reliable service for delivery.
The company will first run a test phase in Los Angeles in the coming months for third party sellers before potentially implementing that system in other states.
About the program, Amazon states "We're always innovating and experimenting on behalf of customers and the businesses that sell and grow on Amazon to create faster, lower-cost delivery choices."
For now, Amazon will still depend on usual carriers for delivery from warehouses to customers.
