  4. 4. Amazon’s KillerWeapon:Amazon Prime “This analysis indicates that Amazon Prime now has 54 million US members, spending on average about $1,100 per year, compared to about $600 per year for non-members.” We’ve grown Prime two-day delivery selection from 1 million items to over 30 million, added Sunday Delivery, and introduced Free Same- Day Delivery on hundreds of thousands of products for customers in more than 35 cities around the world… Prime Now offers members one-hour delivery on an important subset of selection [and serves] members in more than 30 cities around the world. Prime has become an all-you-can-eat, physical-digital hybrid that members love. Membership grew 51% [in 2015]– including 47% growth in the U.S. and even faster internationally – and there are now tens of millions of members worldwide.

The number of active sellers using FBA grew more than 50% [to approx. 3 million sellers]. In Q4 2015, FBA units represented nearly 50% of total third-party units.

  7. 7. Amazon:The 3PL Inside P&GWarehouses “The Amazon-P&G alliance is still running strong. According to data from L2, P&G ranks on the first page of results in Amazon for over 40% of its individual products, and close to a third of its products are among the top 50 in their category in the number of reviews per listing on Amazon.” Source: http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2015/03/06/pg-gets-caught-in-rivalry-between-amazon-and-targe.aspx

  9. 9. Expanding Logistics Footprint – andAmbitions?
  10. 10. The Big Questions  Why is Amazon investing so heavily in expanding its logistics footprint and capabilities?  Why should you care? What are the takeaways?  What, if anything, should you do about it?
  11. 11. Jeff Bezos: “Supplement [Capacity] Heavily” “Amazon isn’t aiming to take over the last mile of delivery from the likes of FedEx, United Parcel Service or the U.S. Postal Service, but rather to ‘supplement it heavily’ chief Jeff Bezos said [May 30th] at a conference hosted by technology website Recode.” Christmas 2013 was a wake-up call Source: “Delivery Won’t Be the Driver at Amazon,” WSJ, June 1, 2016
  12. 12. Wall Street: Amazon the Disruptor “We believe that global logistics is a highly competitive and fragmented market that has yet to capitalize fully on the emergence of web- based technologies such as cloud computing and data- centric analytics and optimizations that can reduce inefficiencies within the supply chain. As such, we believe certain segments of the logistics market, namely last-mile parcel delivery as well as the much larger contract logistics space, are areas in which Amazon could provide a compelling alternative to traditional shipping/logistics providers.” Source: Baird Equity Research report, October 19, 2015
  13. 13. MyView: Directly Control Customer Experience Amazon wants to own and control the innovation cycle — from the front end of its operations (website) to its back end (order fulfillment, DC automation systems, and final delivery) — in a holistic and integrated manner. In essence, Amazon is taking the same “owning the ecosystem” strategy that Apple took in the computer industry.
  14. 14. Takeaway: End-Customers Must Become Center ofYour Supply Chain Universe How must you transform your supply chain processes, technology, resources, and relationships in response? Customers
  15. 15. Takeaway: Logistics Must Become a CompetitiveWeapon Cost management is still important, but leverage logistics to drive top-line growth and profits, increase market share, and improve customer service, experience, and loyalty
  16. 16. Takeaway: Last-Mile Delivery Becoming New Logistics Battleground
  17. 17. Takeaway: Logistics, Commerce, and Technology are Converging
  18. 18. What ShouldYou Do in Response? Do’s  Put customers at the center of your supply chain. How must your supply chain processes, technology, and relationships change?  View logistics as a strategic weapon, not just a cost center, to drive revenue growth, improve customer loyalty, and increase market share.  “Walk the talk” on breaking down functional silos and collaboration. Don’ts  Blindly copy Amazon or operate solely in reactive mode  View technology as a “silver bullet” solution  Take upstarts for granted or become complacent. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
  19. 19. Disruptor or Distraction?
  20. 20. If you ask Travis Kalanick, he might say… Amazon is just a distraction; we’re the true disruptor!
