On the 30th anniversary of Amazon’s founding, Selene Silvestri, a research scientist with MIT’s Center for Transportation and Logistics, joins The Pulse’s Liz Tung to discuss how the company developed its supply chain. “They needed to ensure that items were available, that they could deliver promptly,” Silvestri explains. “They also needed to start having their own warehouses. And they had to do so with two things in mind. They needed these to be cost efficient and they needed also to have these warehouses in locations that would allow them to ship fast.”
