Amazon is looking to expand its delivery service into the United States after receiving a $300 million investment from a California-based hedge fund.
The new partnership between Amazon and FedEx will help the online retailer deliver products like beef jerky, frozen chicken, and other food items to US Post Office delivery centers, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The Wall Street J reported that the Amazon deal could boost the delivery service to 20,000 locations by 2019.
The company’s new delivery partner will provide Amazon with an “elevated level of capability” and the ability to offer Amazon Prime members the ability “to order products from Amazon and then deliver them to their home, office or business,” the Journal reported citing the investment group.
Amazon announced the deal with FedEx in January and has been testing the service in select markets since then.
Amazon Prime, a subscription service that gives subscribers the ability of ordering products and receiving delivery to their homes and offices, was the most popular Prime program in the US during the first quarter of 2017, according to the company.
