Amazon Launches Cargo Plane Delivery Service

Amazon Prime Air will speed up delivery times

Amazon has launched its own cargo plane delivery service, Amazon Prime Air. Intended to speed up delivery times, the company unveiled its new branded aircraft, Amazon One, in Seattle last week. Vice President of Amazon's worldwide operations, Dave Clarke, said that the plan was to expand the fleet to 40 aircraft in the next two years. Clarke described the move as the start of a growing “air transportation network”. This announcement comes with the addition of 4,000 new delivery trucks and the launch of Amazon Flex, which allows freelance drivers to use their own vehicles to make deliveries to customers.
