Amazon.com Inc. said March 18 that it will begin offering its Amazon Day service to the retailer's Business Prime members in the U.S.
Similar to the service for its Prime subscribers, which was launched Feb. 28, Amazon Day for Business allows the Seattle-based giant's business account users to select a recurring day when their packages will be delivered together.
The move was prompted by customer feedback indicating that Amazon Business members prefer having one scheduled delivery day per week to help them streamline and simplify their ordering prices, said Moz Thomas, director of Business Prime, Amazon Business.
The company also rolled out the service to reduce delivery traffic and cut its use of boxes, according to the release.
Amazon said the initiative builds on its Shipment Zero goal, which aims to make all Amazon shipments net zero carbon, with 50% of all shipments net zero by 2030.
