Amazon Shipping, a unit of e-commerce giant Amazon, has partnered with Cloud delivery management company nShift to offer more next-day delivery options in the UK.

Amazon Shipping will be made available on nShift’s carrier library, making it easier for online retailers and web shops to provide quick delivery services.

The nShift carrier library allows its users to connect with more than 1,000 delivery providers, which the company claims ‘enables businesses to offer the optimal range of delivery options and improve their customer experience’.

nShift product and carrier vice-president Johan Hellman said: “Consumers increasingly expect a next-day delivery service and if e-commerce companies cannot offer one, they risk losing their competitive edge. 

“By adding Amazon Shipping to our carrier library, we are providing our customers with another highly reliable and fast delivery service, enabling them to give consumers a delivery service that builds loyalty and encourages repeat purchase.”

Amazon Shipping uses its ‘technologically driven’ logistics network to offer delivery services from the websites and channels of e-commerce companies.

Amazon Shipping EU head Ines van Gennip said: “At Amazon Shipping, we’re thrilled to provide parcel delivery solutions to customers of all types and sizes. 

“By collaborating with nShift, we can offer even more businesses fast and reliable delivery speeds through our technology-driven logistics network.

“We’re looking forward to working closely with nShift and their retailers and supporting them to grow their businesses.”

Last week, Amazon entered an agreement with Brazilian carrier Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras to expand its package delivery capacity in Brazil.

As part of the partnership, Azul airlines will transport packages from the Amazon fulfilment centre in Cajamar, São Paulo, to cities in the north of the country.
