U.S. Postal Service Will Make Sunday Deliveries for Amazon

submitted on November 11, 2013 by HouTex in "Stores / Merchants"

Just in time for the holidays, the post office and Amazon have struck a deal to deliver packages on Sunday. The deal takes effect immediately with delivery in only 2 areas on opposite coasts, and will be expanded to other cities for 2014.
For this holiday shopping season, Sunday delivery of Amazon products will be limited to the Los Angeles and New York metropolitan areas, which in New York’s case includes parts of New Jersey and Connecticut. In 2014 it is expected to expand to other cities including Dallas, Houston, New Orleans and Phoenix.

Among the primary beneficiaries of the new delivery schedule will be Amazon Prime members, who pay an annual fee for premium services including free two-day shipping for certain items.

The Postal Service said it expected to make more such deals with other merchants, seeking a larger role in the $186 billion e-commerce market. Amazon.com would not say if it would try to arrange Sunday deliveries with other parcel carriers.
