Amazon to Dominate Online Deliveries in Europe

May 4, 2016

Amazon took another step in expanding its market influence as it opened doors in the European Union countries. Francois Saugier, Amazon’s director of European seller services, expressed his excitement towards the new business venture of the e-commerce juggernaut in Europe.

“Our mission is to help every seller in Europe sell to every customer in Europe,” the director said.

Amazon will deliver the products  across the European region and the European sellers on Amazon marketplace can send inventory to any of the distribution centers of the firm. As soon as the seller gets an order around the European region, Amazon will deliver it to the residence of the customer.

Furthermore, the sellers are required to pay the local fulfillment fee on the market where they purchased the product/s.

Aside from Europe, Amazon pushes for greater influence in India despite the strict laws of the country for web retailers. Significantly, it makes effort in China in the midst of tight competition against Alibaba.

As it touched Europe, Amazon needs to face competition with the most prominent courier delivery services. For the first three months, half of the Amazon sellers in Europe successfully sold products in different areas across the region.

The company was also set to have two fulfillment centers in New Jersey followed by a college campus pick-up location at California State University Long Beach.

In other news, Amazon has been planning to have a free-day delivery service to Amazon Prime Members in Chicago.

According to the company, once the service was completed, the members of Amazon Prime in Chicago will receive Prime Free Same-Day delivery in addition to the free two-day and one-day shipping options.

Amazon disclosed a solid earnings report for the first quarter recently. The e-commerce giant accumulated 31 percent increased of revenue on an annual basis to $20 billion. Its merchandise, which accounts for 77 percent of the total revenue of the company, jumped by 73 percent in comparison to the same quarter in 2015.

Evidently, the effort of the firm in expanding its delivery logistics division has shown positive results. Amazon has maintained its shipping standards and upbeat marketplace sales.
