Just this morning, Amazon released its plans to use drones for delivering the bulk of its orders in just four to five years. These small, insect-like devices guarantee delivery within 30 minutes of clicking “Buy Now”. It’s expected to alter the course of supply chain, logistics, and internet commerce. No longer will there be the delivery delay hassle that forces others to still shop in-person retail. Instead, we will find that 2-day or 1-day delivery is just too long to wait.
While we consumers are becoming spoiled by how quickly we can receive our orders, companies like Amazon are seeking to bring products to us even faster than ever. It will be up to other companies to catch up with the advancements that Bezos is making into this revolutionary company.
