Amazon delivers a new kind of logistics
from By Robert Gordon
Although many people are focusing on Amazon's recent earnings miss, it's important to realize the online retail giant has spent more than ever on logistics infrastructure. Amazon clearly added assets and is hiring 120,000 people to push its internal logistics initiative forward. Amazon continues to move more logistics in-house, as well as investing in more distribution centers. By taking a page out of Wal-Mart's playbook, Amazon has created a customized logistics system to support its operations.
