Amazon is working to get Prime members their deodorant, light bulbs, and Echos faster than ever.
During the company's first quarter 2019 earnings call on Thursday, CFO Brian Olsavsky said Amazon is "currently working on evolving our Prime free two-day shipping program to be a free one-day shipping program." To make this happen, Amazon will spend $800 million to improve delivery infrastructures and warehouses.
The company has already expanded the number of ZIP codes eligible for one-day shipping, Olsavsky said, and will continue to partner with the U.S. Postal Service and UPS to deliver packages. The new shipping program will first roll out in North America, but will go global eventually. Catherine Garcia
