Amazon's Same-Day Delivery gets faster in parts of US

Amazon, which launched its Prime service in 2005, recently announced making its Same-Day Delivery programme even faster. Prime members in Philadelphia, Phoenix, Orlando and Dallas can now enjoy faster Same-Day Delivery service--in just a few hours. Members can also order as late as midnight and have their orders on their doorstep the next morning by selecting the ‘Overnight by 8 am’ option.

Helping this service are mini-fulfillment centres optimised for faster click-to-delivery speeds, Amazon said in a blog post.

The faster delivery speeds help the company lower carbon emissions in line with its climate pledge to be net zero carbon by 2040—10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement. This is because these new facilities are in close proximity to customers, reducing the need for aircraft transport and generally decreasing the distance drivers have to travel to deliver packages to customers, Amazon said.
