Will Amazon's one-day shipping kill the distribution industry?
Amazon's recent announcement that Prime members will receive complimentary one-day shipping benefits consumers who are too impatient to wait 48 hours for necessities like HDMI cables, laundry detergent or reissues of vinyl records. Amazon's upgrade also benefits electrical contractors, facilities managers, plant managers and other B2B buyers who represent the traditional lifeblood of distributors. The benefits, however, come with potential costs for these distributors.
