Reportedly, Apple (AAPL) will now use its network of almost 300 retail stores spread across the U.S. and Canada as distribution centers to ship products. Earlier, Apple has shipped devices like iPhones, accessories, iPad, and Mac from warehouses located across a customer’s region or directly from China. The change will result in faster delivery for customers far from distribution centers. Products will be shipped through United Parcel Service Inc. in Canada and FedEx Corp. in the U.S. The move will apply to customers who live within 100 miles from a store.
The company’s operations team will decide the location for a product’s shipment. The shift in delivery operations ensures that stores that remain shut or limited due to Covid-19 imposed limitations continue to remain operational. The move will reduce costs, potentially improving product margins, and benefit the environment.
Recently, Apple unveiled new 5G iPhones, over-ear headphones, a new iPad Air, a smaller HomePod, and the first Macs with Apple’s own processors for sale.
Dow 30 component Apple (AAPL) has revolutionized personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984.
