Amazon is taking its delivery service to new heights; the e-commerce company is introducing a fleet of jets -- 40 air cargo planes to be exact. Amazon's first branded airplane, a Boeing 767-300 named 'Amazon One,' is being released during the Seattle's 'Searfair Air Show' for its first inaugural flight. The company chose to add cargo airplanes to enhance its delivery services for its Amazon Prime customer in the U.S. The dedicated airplane network will allow for higher shipping speeds for one and two-day shipments and will have a greater capacity for goods. Consumers can expect to see the 40 air cargo planes released in the next few years.

Amazon is known for being at the forefront of e-commerce and making delivery easy and accessible for customers. By developing its own postal network, the company is able to offer higher quality customer service to its clients and have great control over its innovative ventures.
