From Behind the Dock Doors

December, 2013

ecommerceSpeed to consumers is all the rage, and ecommerce companies like Amazon.com are driving significant industry change.  Gone are the days of having two or even four distribution centers throughout the country.  Amazon has 89 and is planning to open 7 more this year.  In an effort to speed delivery to an instant-gratification society, Amazon is now partnering with the US Postal Service for Sunday deliveries.  The Sunday service started last month in New York City and Los Angeles and will expand into Dallas, Houston, Phoenix and New Orleans early next year with other cities to follow.
