Google dives into delivery service,buys Bufferbox

Google could be about to start offering a same-day delivery service to challenge Amazon. It’s just bought a Canadian start-up called BufferBox, which has lockers in central locations that hold your parcel until you’re ready to pick it up though it will only be available in the U.S.,Canada and Europe.

Assuming you’re at work all day, just swing by the locker on the way home or whenever is convenient for you. No waiting in for the postie required.

It’s similar to Amazon Locker, a service the e-retailer started offering late last year. And it hints Google is looking to become more of an online shopping powerhouse.

Google is keeping mum on what it intends to do with BufferBox, but one of the big G’s engineering directors told the Financial Post that the start-up’s branding and services would continue for the foreseeable.

Google has been launching more and more products of late, and they only seem to be getting better. The Nexus 4; made with LG is great value for money, winning our coveted Editors’ Choice Award.

It’s just a shame Google has struggled with stock. The device sold out in just half an hour, with plenty of Android fans keen to snap up a bargain.

Amazon too has been launching more products, expanding its Kindle line recently, but has a lot more experience as a retailer, so has a considerable head start on Google.
