In an effort to expand its ambition in the air, e-commerce giant Amazon invested $ 1.5 billion in building a three million square foot portion of Prime Air outside Cincinnati, Kentucky, as a garage for 100 cargoes.
“We invested $ 1.5 billion in our new Air Center to get your package faster, three million square feet, and that would create 2000 jobs, and if you suspect driving a front loader is fun, you’re right” # Amazon #prime “, Bezos wrote on Tuesday.
While Amazon Prime Air in Texas and Ohio is likely to add new regional prime hubs this year, it is clear that the technology giant is still busy, said TechCrunch.
Today, the company does not even have many aircraft, but the center aims to implement the company’s ambitious logistics ambitions for the future.
Amazon has several dozen aircraft flying several hundred flights a week, while UPS and Fedex have hundreds of aircraft flying thousands of flights, the report said.
With this statement, Amazon seems to start competition with logistics specialties such as Fedex and UPS in the US.
