business news in context, analysis with attitude

Reuters reports that “Amazon is looking to lease a 50,000-square-meter warehouse just outside Sao Paulo … as it steps up its push into Latin America's biggest retail market, Brazil. The logistics investment, which would be four times the size of its current book-shipping operation in the country, is a sign the online retailer may soon handle distribution of electronics and other goods sold on its Brazilian website.

“That would be the first step of its kind for Amazon in Latin America's largest economy, where it currently relies on third parties to ship their own goods sold on its marketplace, and it underscores the seriousness of the e-commerce giant's renewed
push into Brazil.”
