Amazon has announced that it will now offer Sunday deliveries to a number of customers in cities across the United Kingdom, and Amazon Prime members in the UK can now receive their packages on Sundays at no additional charge.
Patrick Fitzgerald, FedEx Service senior vice president, sat down with Fox Business on Cyber Monday to candidly discuss the possibility of Sunday deliveries, the future for seasonal hires, and the much debated hot topic of Amazon drones.
It sounds like Amazon did its homework when it decided to offer Sunday delivery to its Amazon Prime members. And the U.S. Postal Service was smart enough to pounce on the opportunity to be its Sunday delivery provider.
Amazon’s recently-announced partnership with the U.S. Postal Service, which expands delivery offerings for Amazon Prime members to include Sundays, offers a promise of much needed revenue for the USPS and improves its relevancy in the parcel delivery business.
