Don’t get me wrong like most people I shop online and yes with Amazon. What’s not to like Mr Bezos came up with a great idea many years ago and improved on it and continues to do so. Good luck to him is what I say.
However I do worry that he is actually too good at what he does. According to a story on Reuters on Friday he ordered 1800 EV’s from Mercedes Benz. Great news for MB but if you were a cycle courier should you be concerned? I would be.
DHL are also doing the same thing at the moment. Large companies with deep pockets investing in the green logistics business.
Until now first and last mile deliveries has been the domain of relatively small businesses.
Are the big boys about to change all that? I almost hate to say it but if history is anything to go by the DHL’s and Amazons of this world will do it better, faster and cheaper than most first and last mile companies.
Unless of course those companies can come up with a better offer.
Just a thought from planet Amazon formally known as Earth.
