Re: Amazon Fleet Discussion - 2019

Looks like my recent item was shipped from PDX9 (Troutdale, Oregon). So it looks like Amazon is adding one-day air routes as we speak. I know one longtime hole in Amazon's same-day/one-day network is Albuquerque. I think they will need at least a Sortation Center and/or a Delivery Station there if t...

Re: Amazon Fleet Discussion - 2019

Looks like Amazon has just added the Portland area fulfillment centers as Free One-Day eligible for Phoenix (at least it appears that way from tracking since I haven't actually gotten the item yet). This is probably taking advantage of the flight schedule of the PDX-PHX Amazon Air flight.
