Amazon has announced a partnership with the US Postal Service that will see the retailer deliver packages on Sundays from now on. As online shopping continues to increase, the Postal Service is very happy to offer shippers like Amazon the option of having packages delivered on Sunday, said USPS CEO Patrick R. Donahue in a press release; its unclear whether the service will make similar arrangements with other clients. The Wall Street Journal reports that the deal sees Amazon making use of a little-known offering available to any shipper, but that this is the first major push into Sunday deliveries for the USPS. Amazon has been getting more aggressive in its shipping strategy, reportedly spending nearly $14 billion in a three-year warehouse expansion and raising its free delivery threshold from $25 to $35.
