Amazon, The U.S. Postal Service And The Push To Expand Same-Day Delivery

Yesterday we learned that the online retail giant, Amazon, is expanding its delivery options with a decidedly old school partner, the U.S. Postal Service. Starting in New York City and LA the U.S. Postal service will be adding Sunday Deliveries for some Amazon customers at no extra charge. The partnership is likely to bring in much needed revenue to the long struggling Postal Service, and for Amazon customers, it can mean even speedier delivery times, a feature online shoppers increasingly expect. Please join Diane and her guests to discuss how expanding Sunday delivery service and the ongoing push toward same-day are transforming online shopping and the retail industry.
