Amazon Adds Sunday Delivery to 15 Additional U.S. Cities through USPS

Amazon Prime members, who receive unlimited two-day shipping on millions of items, can order as late as Friday and receive their packages on Sunday, for free.

 Amazon.com Inc. announced that customers in 15 additional cities are eligible for Sunday delivery. In addition to the Los Angeles and New York metro areas where Sunday delivery launched in November 2013, Amazon customers in the following locations are now receiving deliveries on Sunday: 

• Austin, Texas
• Cincinnati, Ohio
• College Station, Texas
• Columbus, Ohio
• Dallas, Texas
• Houston, Texas
• Indianapolis, Ind.
• Lexington, Ky.
• Louisville, Ky.
• New Orleans, La.
• Oklahoma City, Okla.
• Philadelphia, Pa.
• San Antonio, Texas
• Shreveport, La.
• Waco, Texas

"So far, the most common items delivered on Sunday include baby supplies such as newborn apparel, books and toys---Sunday delivery is clearly crossing errands off the weekend to-do list," said Mike Roth, Amazon's vice president of North America operations. "We know our Amazon customers love the convenience of everyday delivery, and we're excited to be offering Sunday delivery in more cities across the U.S."

Since Sunday delivery launched, millions of packages have been delivered on Sunday to Amazon customers. Amazon and the U.S. Postal Service plan to continue to roll out Sunday delivery to a large portion of the U.S. population this year.

To participate, Amazon customers can simply add any of the millions of eligible items to their cart and see the Sunday delivery promise at checkout when available in their region.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
