Amazon always strives for the customer satisfaction by delivering the orders faster. Earlier Amazon has come up with the Drone delivery and self-driving trucks, now they are launching their private cargo planes for the speed delivery.
As of now Amazon logo already exists on tablet computers, Kindles, enormous cardboard boxes in America’s doorsteps. And now the Amazon’s arrow is showing up on the Boeing 767 plane. Amazon’s first branded aircraft is showcased at the Seafair Air Show in Seattle in the weekend.
In the recent video time-lapse Boeing 767-300 is seen being painted with the logo of Amazon. This is one of the planes that Amazon has agreed to lease with the air cargo partners Atlas Air and Air Transport Services Group and these will be rolling out in next couple of years.
“Creating an air transportation network enables us in expanding our capacity to ensure excellent delivery speeds for our Prime members for years to come,” says Dave Clark, Amazon’s Senior Vice-President of Worldwide Operations mentioned in a statement.
Amazon does not want to replace UPS and FedEx, as they were good partners in the delivering the logistics with the company for many years. This firm also says that their planes and trucking are mainly meant for moving the goods from one Amazon warehouse to another. Rather than simplifying the delivery of orders to the customers. In a similar way, the company is venturing into the logistics segment are for intending for complementing their business but not replacing the existing logistics partners.
“You can almost think about the difference between private flight and commercial flight, and we have the ability with our individual planes in creating the connections between one point and another point that are exactly tailored to our needs and requirements. And exactly tailored to the timing of when we want to put packages on those routes versus other peoples’ networks which are optimised to run their entire network. We add capacity; we add flexibility, and it gives us cost-control capability as well.” Says Clark.
