Amazon.com Inc's push to recruit big-rig contractors to haul goods across its web of warehouses is colliding with a trucker shortage as the e-commerce company moves what are expected to be record numbers of packages this holiday season. Its project, called Amazon Freight Partners (AFP), enlists independent trucking companies to move goods between Amazon facilities. The companies, or AFPs, all of which are exclusive Amazon contractors, also move packages to and from the company's fleet of 85 owned or leased North American airplanes.
Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN) may have won Black Friday, but the day's cultural significance is over, broken by the pandemic, supply chain, and runaway inflation woes which made retailers push for early access to holiday deals this year. For the first time ever, Black Friday sales were lower than those from a year ago, as were sales made on Cyber Monday. Black Friday is still the biggest shopping day of the year, and Amazon CEO Dave Clark said it was a record-breaking day for the e-commerce giant.
