"We’re able to do this because we’ve spent 20+ years expanding our fulfillment and logistics network," Amazon spokesperson Julie Law told WIAD in an email.  "But this is still a big investment in our customer experience." 

The goal is to offer free one-day shipping as Amazon Prime's default shipping method opposed to the current two-day shipping norm, Law said.
