Amazon is improving its cross-border delivery network to enable products stores in warehouses across Europe to be delivered to UK customers in two days instead of the current three to seven days.
More than a million products stored in its European fulfilment centres are now available for two-day delivery for customers in the UK and the plan is to increase that to three million by the end of the year.
Amazon Prime customers in the UK will automatically qualify for Two-Day Delivery on these products at no additional charge.
UK-based Marketplace sellers who use the Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) service will also now get two day delivery to other European countries.
“Our European approach brings a wealth of benefits for customers including access to an ever-increasing selection of products, fast delivery from any of our European Fulfilment Centres and low prices driven by the efficiencies and economies scale that we achieve,” said Roy Perticucci, vice president for EU operations at Amazon EU Sarl.
