As posted on Amazon expands into UK’s £96bn business-to-business market
Amazon is targeting the multibillion-pound UK business-to-business market by launching a new service that sells office supplies, industrial tools and laboratory kits to companies.
The service, called Amazon Business, is the latest example of the US company’s dramatic expansion beyond its traditional consumer retail business. Amazon already offers cloud computing services to businesses through Amazon Web Services.
The UK online market for business-to-business sales was valued at £96.5bn for 2015 by the Office for National Statistics.
