All Amazon Prime customers in the US can now specify which day of the week they wish to receive their packages. Customers can specify which day they will default delivery date for future packages, and change them by checkout later. The items come together in a package, store boxes and make the shipping delivery more predictable.
The feature, called Amazon Day, was first introduced in November as an invitation program. The concept is part of Amazon's sustainability initiative "Shipment Zero", which intends to make all Amazon shipments neutral and half of the shipments are carbon neutral by 2030. Amazon said that since testing began with a group of premiers last year, the company has reduced packaging with "tens of thousands of boxes."
Amazon Prime members can also use Prime one-day, two-day and non-rush shipping options. Customers can also choose not to pack goods into an Amazon Day package, and only receive a shipment separately as usual.
