Amazon deliveries via public transport
Amazon thanks to this, it can use the public network of transport for the delivery of parcels faster and more efficient. Last week, the giant online has received a patent for his latest project, the execution of the orders, as the company tries to support the public transportation system of the United States, and at the same time further develop its shipments. Thanks to this new method, customers will be able to cross the bus to a stop close to work or home and pick up their order Amazon thanks to a point collection mobile that will be connected to the vehicle.
Entering a little more in detail, the patent provides that the user will enter his address or the area in which you would like to pick up the package, and the automated system will present a list of bus stops near to the address or area of your choice.
“Once the user selects a bus stop, the system may present a list of time windows during which it is expected that a number of buses are at the stop chosen,” says the patent.
This necessity is due to the fact that the collection points that are currently available in various locations throughout the Country are not accessible for millions of customers (or these do not have the time to go to the point of withdrawal) that regularly purchase goods on Amazon.com.
The company claims that the delivery by a public transport aligns with its investment in the public transport system of Seattle, given that Bezos believes that public transport is essential, especially in areas in which Amazon has a huge base of operations.
