The company are looking to speed up the delivery process
Amazon are continuing their expansion, now with an fleet of planes to ensure customers receive their purchases in a timely fashion.
The company has been linked to drone-delivery and self-driving trucks, but while they may seem a while off just yet, the company are not holding back in terms of dreaming big.
The company is planning to launch its first ever branded cargo plane, named Amazon One, at Seattle's SeaFair Air Show today.
The plane is a a Boeing 767-300 operated by Atlas Air, an existing provider of air cargo services for Amazon.com.
In a statement ahead of the event, the company’s senior vice president of worldwide operations, Dave Clarke, outlined plans for a more expansive “air transportation network.” The company will lease 40 planes in total from Atlas Air and another partner, ATSG, for its Prime Air cargo operations in the next two years.
The move is part of a broad effort to speed delivery for ever-demanding customers.
