By the end of the year, Amazon plans to put 20 trucks into operation for shipping. In doing so, the shipping giant wants to take a step towards more environmental protection. In this article, you can read about the effects that Amazon hopes will result from shipping with electric trucks. Also interesting for Amazon sellers: The optimized B2B price adjustment.
With the introduction of electric trucks for Amazon shipping, Amazon wants to play a part in being CO2 neutral by the year 2040. The battery-powered vehicles offer the advantage over combustion engines that they produce fewer emissions. In Germany, more than a third of traffic emissions are currently still caused by trucks and other commercial vehicles. The manufacturer of the electric trucks is Volvo Trucks. Incidentally, the vehicles can be charged in less than two hours. State-of-the-art charging stations have been installed for this purpose. In addition to the trucks, there are already more than 1,200 vehicles for Amazon Shipping that are electrically powered or do not require a motorized drive. This number is to be further increased in the coming years.
Did you know that there is a way to automate price adjustment for B2B products? You can choose between three different options: First, there is the business catalog rule. This simply requires you to set a price at a point in time. The same applies to volume discounts. Amazon then ensures that the business price and discounts are applied to the SKUs. If you then change the default price, they will then change automatically. Second, you can also specify SKUs where you want to automate a percentage price reduction. Third, you can specify a rule for price adjustment where it will stop once your offer is highlighted. If you have any further questions about B2B price adjustment, feel free to drop us a line.
