SYSTEM DESIGN / STRATEGY DESIGN
The future belongs to sharing economy,
For objects, for time, for space, for services, and for everything.
Every time I went to school with empty hands, I was always wondering if I can help deliver something from one place to another just like a Uber driver. As sharing economy model has been widely used for products, will human resources be the next direction?
Amazon Air is a package delivery system design based on the sharing economy model. Today, online shopping is becoming more and more popular. Packages have become an integral part of our lives. As most people don’t carry many objects with them on their way to the office, why not help deliver a package and earn extra money at the same time?
In Amazon Air, you can choose your commute routes before going out. Then you can help Amazon deliver a package on your way at a certain time and get paid. For the users, they earn extra money by doing their daily routines. For Amazon, it can both save delivery cost and reduce transport pollution.
