Amazon Prime to Shift to One-Day Delivery & Our Minds Are Blown

Amazon Prime has set the gold standard for speedy delivery at two days. Now, Prime customers are about to get really spoiled: the company just announced that they’re moving to a one-day delivery window for Amazon Prime orders.

According to CNET, during an earnings call on Thursday, Amazon finance chief, Brian Olsavsky said, “We’re currently working on evolving our Prime shipping program, which has historically been a two-day program, to a one-day shipping program. We’ll be building most of this capacity through the year, in 2019.” He later added. “We expect to make steady progress quickly and through the year.”

This change won’t come cheap to the corporate giant. Olsavsky notes that Amazon will spend $800 million in investments to its infrastructure just in the current quarter, which will help lay the foundation to accomplish this ambitious goal in 2019.

Soon, those diapers, wipes and anything else you Prime post-bedtime will arrive at lightning speed. Think: your kids may never know what it means to anxiously wait for a delivery.
