Amazon Offering Two-Day Delivery Inside the EU
Noting that their delivery systems inside the EU “continue to improve,” Amazon is now offering two-day shipping to Prime customers all across the EU.
Although customers in the UK have long enjoyed free one-day shipping as Prime members, shipping products stored in fulfillment centers outside the UK has always taken a bit longer – anywhere from three to seven days.
Now, as reported by The Telegraph, Amazon says that they can ship these products – stored all across the EU – to customers in the UK in just two days.
“This is another significant step towards what Amazon believes providing the best customer offering across Europe should look like,” Xavier Garambois, Vice President Retail, Amazon EU Sàrl told The Telegraph. “Our long standing goal has been to offer an unrivalled service for customers regardless of where they are based in the EU and the systems that we have created to deliver to any customer, in any EU country from any of our 25 European Fulfilment Centres continue to improve.”
A VP of EU operations at Amazon added that the company will be looking to include even more products for this shipping window.
As of right now, Amazon says that they can get the number of products to top three million by the end of this year.
