Two-day shipping is still a relatively new concept. Amazon was first to offer the speedy delivery option in 2005 to its Prime customers for about $80 per year. Since then, many other companies have begun to offer two-day shipping and even faster options.
You’ve likely come to expect and maybe even rely on fast deliveries. While 28% of consumers expect items to arrive within the standard time frame of three to five business days, 25% expect items to be delivered the next day and 10% even expect same-day delivery, according to a PricewaterhouseCoopers global consumer survey.
