Aircraft leasing firm Air Transport Services Group will serve Amazon customers promising great shipping speeds

epa03561430 FILE) A file photo dated 06 December 2011 showing employees of the online retailer Amazon packing goods at the logistics center in Bad Hersfeld, Germany. Amazon posted a sales increase of 22-per-cent over the critical fourth quarter 30 January 2013 as customers snapped up 21.27-billion dollars worth of goods from the leading web retailer. Operating income grew 56 per cent to 405 million dollars, from 260 million a year earlier. But net income was down 45 per cent to 97 million dollars as the company continued to pursue greater market share with low profit margins, while also ramping up investment in infrastructure and logistics centres. That strategy is at the core of the company's long-term growth plan, which is starting to bear fruit, said founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. EPA/UWE ZUCCHI
