We’ve all had the experience of walking into a store and seeing some item that isn’t available at the store. Or maybe you’ve had it happen to you when you’re at the mall and you see some item that isn’t in the stores you normally go to.
What you may not know is that Amazon, one of the world’s largest online retailers, has a great solution for the problem. It’s called “delivery excellence.” In Amazon’s case, the term means “the delivery of the item you were looking for.” Amazon uses this service to save customers time and effort.
The use of this service is pretty much the best idea in ecommerce. Amazon is the #1 online retailer in the world, but it has a huge problem. Its delivery team sucks at delivering things. Imagine if you had to come to a store and walk into a store and see that it wasnt even stocked with a specific item. Imagine if you had to go through the process of finding a specific item, because someone has just delivered it to the store but it isnt in stock.
This is what happened to Amazon in the past couple of years. Amazon has been pretty good about changing their delivery system, but it is still not as good as it could be, and there are still problems with Amazon’s delivery team.
Amazon isnt the only delivery service that has issues. The other major delivery service is UPS. They are still having issues with their deliveries, and they have been doing a lot of work on their new delivery service.
UPS has the distinction of being the fastest-growing and most profitable delivery company in the world, but the competition is heating up. The competition has to do with the cost of delivering certain products to specific homes. For instance, a new home’s furnace isn’t sold as a part of a UPS package and thus it is more expensive. Since it is delivered through a UPS truck, it costs more than delivering it in a home would.
So now that UPS is introducing new trucks (to the public) that can deliver products to homes much cheaper (that is, less expensive) than it used to be, the question becomes, “Who’s going to beat them?” As the competition grows, UPS is going to have to do something about it. There are a few startups that are now competing with UPS in specific areas. For instance, Amazon Prime lets you get products delivered to your door for free.
Amazon is now a competitor to UPS in the delivery space as well. Amazon Prime lets you get things delivered to your door for free, in return for a couple of items, like groceries, wine, flowers, or movies. The first thing you need to do is to set up your Amazon account and sign up for the Prime service. Amazon Prime is an excellent solution for people who want to have something delivered to their door for free.
The best part of Prime is that it takes care of delivery costs for your whole house (that’s a plus). You can buy groceries, wine, movies, and flowers online for less than you can buy them in stores and have them delivered to your door. There is no need to shell out for a delivery man.
Delivery excellence is so important for Amazon that it’s been included in their “best sellers” list. If you want to know what this means, check out this link. We are all about delivery excellence and that’s what Amazon is about.
