Forget drones, Amazon has been experimenting with a far more innovative method of providing same-day delivery to its customers. As part of a new pilot program, it turns out that one of the most efficient methods of getting packages to doorsteps are good old-fashioned yellow taxis.
After a soft launch in a Brooklyn neighborhood, more New Yorkers can now order Amazon Fresh. For a limited time, Amazon Prime members in certain ZIP codes will be able to get free same-day delivery of over 500,000 goods, including groceries, electronics, and items from local vendors. But there's still a ways to go.
The Amazon Fresh same-day grocery delivery service is finally reportedly coming to New York City—perhaps as early as October. To handle logistics, Re/Code's sources say that Amazon's been prepping a warehouse in New Jersey that could also serve the Philadelphia market. We saw this one coming but it's still exciting…
Amazon just unveiled Dash, a handheld Wi-Fi magic wand thingy that helps you keep your AmazonFresh shopping list forever up to date. Never run out of toilet paper or oatmeal again!
Amazon already controls virtually every corner of the retail market—every corner except for one that is: America's grocery stores. But that may soon change, as they're planning to expand testing of a new online grocery delivery service.
