Amazon Prime will soon promise next-day delivery for its members in the USA. Marek Różycki, Managing Partner at Last Mile Experts, joins me to analyse this move:

  • Amazon: the catalyst for change in the last mile

  • The scale of Amazon’s investment in the last mile

  • Proximity to the customer and density of fulfilment centres

  • Shipping by air to please the customer

  • Walmart’s response - motivated by competition or by delighting the customer?

  • Parcel volume for Amazon’s Delivery Service Partners - and what motivates Amazon to find alternative delivery providers

  • Customer expectations in the last mile - including out-of-home delivery options

Also in this episode:

  • Shipster, Australia Post’s answer to Amazon Prime, is set to close in July

  • Poste Italiane has announced a joint venture with digital freight start-up sennder
