Amazon.com is the world’s largest online shopping platform and an outstanding cloud services provider. Amazon transports millions of packages in every day and providing logical and stable the volume. Amazon gives everything to get us too started, including the volume, tools, and flexibility.
The Amazon Company was basically a bookseller company after reached the success it has expanded to sell a large variety of consumer goods and digital media like electronic devices, such as the Kindle Fire tablet, Kindle e-book reader and Fire TV, a streaming media adapter and so on.
AWS is called as Amazon web services is a comprehensive and develop the cloud computing platform. The first AWS were launched in 2006 to provide online platform services for the websites and client-side apps. Elastic Compute Cloud i.e. EC2 and S3 is called as the Simple Storage Service is the backbone of the Amazon Company’s large and growing collection of Web services.
The huge online retail was Amazon and it wants a higher piece of the 800 billion dollars for trucking industry pie, and it plans to get it by reuse purposing for some classic gig economy tactics, as like Uber cabs.
The said Business Insider, in 2017 summer the scheduled to launch in the Amazon is reportedly working on building a new application-based service that will event the truck drivers with shippers in need of truckers. The application will reportedly function in the same way to how Uber matches the drivers with the riders and thereby cutting out the need for a center person and the likely duty of that comes with the way.
The real-time pricing and driving directions are offered by the application, and also the personalized features and they are a truck to break the recommendations and an advised travel of loads to pick up and drop off. The application could also have to chase and payment options in order to rise up the entire shipping process.
The latest rumored which plan in the Amazon is to evolve into a full-scale logistics company that controls the entire delivery cycle. Over the past year, Amazon has shopping dozens of cargo planes and thousands of trailer trucks, while launching the last mile the latest services like Amazon Flex which takes the packages straight to the end of the user.
The signals which develop the new growing line of the business and not exactly the subtitle hints which the Amazon is looking to stop into the huge business of logistics. Whether it is late to deliver, planes or ships there is no problem with Amazon will keep on suggesting that it wants to rely less on third member companies and instead invest in building its own product, therefore, the Amazon have the branded shipping empire.
Amazon is either an Uber freight nor to be the trucking, retail place that also works like as well as Uber service.
The expensive goal of the app is to improve the middle mile of the logistics space, which is widely and it’s controlled by the third-party dealer who charges a big fee for manage the manual hand written work and phone calls to arrange the distribution between the shipping slip or warehouses. It would make the shipping more effective, cheaper and this is not just for its users, but for Amazon itself too, who has been dealing with growing the shipping costs lately.
The latest service would put the Amazon Company honestly in the competition with a large number of startups in this world, such as guard and the Trucker Path while putting a direct shot on the incumbent players which including the publicly listed ones like C.H. Robinson and J.B. Hunt. Amazon Company is presently a customer of C.H. Robinson, although the CEO Jeff Bezos is an investor in the Convoy. Amazon denies to the comment.
Invigorating and confidential initiative
The crew for this project is sprinkled around the Seattle, Minneapolis, and the Amazon’s overseas offices in India. The particular Minneapolis office is anticipated to have more than 100 engineers by the next year, generally working on this project and this is due to our source.
In fact, the Minneapolis is one of the job posts for office says Amazon is looking for a Principal Product to manage the work on an invigoration and confidential initiative in the middle-mile transportation of an organization.
The software development engineer is another job post in the Minneapolis and this says the Transportation Technology of Amazon is a division and building the software that manages the time and cost of getting the packages to be delivered.
It is not clear why the Minneapolis and this become an important part of this project in the Amazon. But the main thing is the city is near to the headquarters for the C.H. Robinson, Target, and Best purchase and possibly making it easier to hire the people away from those competing companies.
The industry’s revenue
The company has reached the high revenue. There are many opportunities for the Amazon. Approximately 84 percent of all, shipping is spending on the trucking, and the market itself is predicated on being worth more than 800 billion dollars, and it is due to the tracking startup Convoy.
Trucker Path is another startup in this world and this says truck driving is the most ordinary job in 29 United States, but it is a market that has been slow to adopt the latest technologies. Therefore the most of the trucking companies are the small businesses, with 90 percent of them possess less than six trucks in the company.
There are lots of competitors, but the Amazon has an advantage about the demand from the shipper’s side and they have no worries about the competitors. The importance of the Uber is to order to make an Uber for trucking in the marketplace work and we need demand from both the sides of the equation i.e. shippers and the drivers. But the Amazon has already had a giant in the shipping network, and a rapid growth in the package volume. So therefore theoretically it should not be tough to find a freight to match for the drivers on its own platform.
But the services are similar to differ in their other service. Uber is a service platform that, but for the most of the part it only makes its money by taking a hitting from all the undertaking and it helps from facilitating. The often-controversial practice of the company is raising the fees at the peak hours and could also make it hard for those companies.
There are some regulatory the difficulties which need to be addressed. For example, in other trucks, drivers are not admitted to hitting more than a single button when making a call while during the driving.
There are also strict hour restrictions on how to long drivers can go without a break. Therefore the Amazon may be considering to add Alexa’s voice-controls and new auto-logging characters to get over these issues.
Trucking has absolutely been one of the hottest places on the technical side over the former few years back, even with the huge startups like Uber joining the race. Amazon becomes magnificent so that everyone will have to be aware of to buy the things.
