US: Amazon reportedly to test one-hour bike delivery

Wednesday 10 December 2014 00:54 CET | News

Amazon is reportedly carrying out one-hour bike deliveries programme in New York, in an attempt to narrow the time required from order to customer item delivery.

The programme is called “Amazon Prime Now,” and focuses on bike couriers delivering items around town less than an hour after a customer orders online, reports, citing Amazon currently offers same-day delivery (USD 5.99 for Prime users, USD 8.99 for others) in about 12 US markets, and has recently launched the service in Canada.

In recent news, Amazon will be equipping its warehouses from around the world with 10,000 robots by the end of 2014, which are expected to haste the packing and delivering of purchased items to customers.
