E-commerce giant Amazon, which is expanding its freighter fleet, had a record-breaking holiday season with more items ordered worldwide than ever before, although it did not provide total figures.
Amazon customers shopped at record levels, it said, "from a wide selection of products across every department, discovering top holiday gifts and trending products offered at deep discounts and low prices".
Some of the best-selling products this season included, all-new Echo Dot, L.O.L. Surprise! Glam Glitter Series Doll, fashion items from Carhartt, and Bose QuietComfort Wireless Headphones, among others.
“This season was our best yet, and we look forward to continuing to bring our customers what they want, in ways most convenient for them in 2019. We are thrilled that in the U.S. alone, more than one billion items shipped for free this holiday with Prime,” said Jeff Wilke, CEO Worldwide Consumer.
