So, just what is this plan?
Well, it all goes back to 2013, when a report was presented to Amazon’s senior management team. The report outlined an aggressive global expansion plan for the company’s “Fulfillment By Amazon” (FBA) service. The FBA service provides storage, packaging, and shipping for vendors selling products on Amazon’s e-commerce platform.
According to the report, Amazon would build a delivery network that controls the flow of goods around the globe.
“Sellers will no longer book with DHL, UPS or Fedex but will book directly with Amazon,” the report said.
