AMAZON.COM Inc is considering expanding its same-day delivery programme globally, recent job listings have shown, underlining the importance of fast shipping to its ability to compete with the instant gratification offered by brick-and-mortar stores.

The No 1 US online retailer is also looking to add a same-day delivery option on all items sold by third-party merchants on its site, a move that some logistics experts said may help offset the high costs of speedy, last-mile delivery.
