5 Rumored Industries That Amazon Might Break Into Soon
No stranger to the shipping and delivery process, recent media reports have suggested that Amazon is looking to launch its own delivery service this spring.
The Wall Street Journal first reported that the new service is being dubbed Shipping With Amazon, or SWA. The service would allow Amazon to make pickups from third-party merchants selling on its e-commerce platform, and then Amazon would either directly deliver goods straight to the buyer, or hand off the deliveries to UPS, FedEx or the U.S. Postal Service, the entities that are delivering Amazon goods today. According to reports, the service would be piloted in Los Angeles.
