Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, is revolutionizing product delivery in ways never imagined. According to Biography.com, Mr. Bezos was born on January 12, 1964, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. On July 5, 1994 he created Amazon.
Business Insider’s Shana Lebowitz explained that Bezos chose the name Amazon “… because it was earth’s largest river and he was building earth’s largest bookstore.” To meet today’s consumer demands, Amazon was forced to adapt from specializing as an online book seller to become an online massive market. This organization’s inventory has become so efficient, that it is hard to find a better online store.
Amazon’s determination to dominate delivery methods led them to create amazing projects such as Prime and Prime Air. Not only does Prime offer rapid order deliveries, but Business Insider reporter Connie Chen says that it offers many benefits, including grocery delivery, try-on clothing service, video and music streaming, Twitch prime, 30-minute early access to shopping deals and much more.
According to Amazon’s site, Prime Air, which is currently under development, will be “…designed to safely get packages to customers in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles, also called drones.” The Verge reporter James Vincent said that at the MARS conference in California “[a] Prime Air drone dropped off some bottles of sunscreen for attendees …” This just shows how much progress Amazon is making towards the next massive advancement in delivery.
Another available delivery service is Amazon Locker. According Amazon’s Kathie Holsenbeck, “Amazon Lockers are secure, self-service kiosks located across the U.S. Lockers allow you to pick up your package at a time that’s convenient for you…”
Jeff Bezos is paving the way by developing so many delivery innovations. Not only has Amazon changed the concept of delivery, it has reached milestones that other companies will have difficulty surpassing.
