Starting on Tuesday, all Premium members in the US will be able to select a particular day to receive a week of Amazon shipments. Once a Premium member is enrolled in the "Amazon Day" service, Amazon will retain everything that it has ordered throughout the week and deliver the items together on the day selected by the customer. .
"We think this reflects the need to compensate for the increased competition for free and fast shipping," said Thill.
By 2030, Amazon wants half of its shipments to be carbon neutral. The company said Amazon Day would help it achieve this goal: the delivery option has already eliminated tens of thousands of boxes since the test of functionality in November, according to Maria Renz , vice president of the delivery experience.
Amazon recently introduced frustration-free packaging designed to produce less waste and invested in solar and wind farms.
Amazon Day will appear as a delivery option for Prime customers on the Amazon online store. If customers register, they can still select another delivery option for individual packages, including delivery on the same day or both days. Additional items may be added to Amazon Day shipments up to two days prior to the customer's shipping date.
