Amazon seeks entrepreneurs for delivery service

The new program which is called Amazon Delivery Service Partners aims at helping the e-commerce company meet up to its increasing demand for package deliveries. They don't have to lease the Amazon blue vans, but if they do, those vehicles can only be used to deliver Amazon packages, the company said.

Amazon has been doing some major things lately, like extending Prime membership benefits to their Whole Foods locations and launching a new service that allows delivery people access the inside of your vehicle to drop off packages.

Amazon announced on Wednesday (June 27, 2018) that it would provide incentives to attract entrepreneurs to create their own small parcel delivery company as part of Amazon's latest effort to tackle the big problem of shipping goods to customers in one country such as the United States of America.

Partners will be able to lease Amazon-branded delivery trucks and buy discounted fuel and insurance through the company.

According to Amazon Logistics, "If you're a customer-obsessed people person who loves coaching teams in a high speed, ever-changing environment, becoming an Amazon Delivery Service Partner is an ideal opportunity for you".

Probably not. There are more packages to be delivered besides the ones shipped by Amazon. However, an Amazon SVP told CNBC that this new program shouldn't damage the company's relationship with core providers. As we evaluated how to support our growth, we went back to our roots to share the opportunity with small-and-medium-sized businesses.

"I had prior experience running my own business but not in logistics".

Amazon's new program could rake $75,000 and $300,000 in annual profits for each entrepreneur. An Amazon representative declined to give details on how much it will pay for the deliveries. The contractor will be responsible for hiring delivery people, and Amazon would be the customer, paying the business to pick up packages from its 75 USA delivery centers and dropping them off at shoppers' doorsteps.

"In just five months, I have hired more than 40 employees, and it's encouraging to know that any driven individual can use Amazon's support and the Delivery Service Partner community to build a successful, thriving business".
