Amazon doubled down on its commitment to expand its logistics and fulfillment network on its latest earnings call.
The e-commerce giant is focused “squarely on adding capacity to meet the current high customer demand,” Director of Investor Relations Dave Fildes said Thursday.
A lot of Amazon’s planned capacity will open in the second half of the year. But this is far from the start of its build. In fact, Amazon’s effort to develop an insourced supply chain extends back years with efforts to build out its fleet, develop air infrastructure and get closer to consumers.
