Last June, Amazon created the Delivery Service Partner program to allow entrepreneurs to create their own businesses delivering packages for Amazon.
Not just anyone can sign up to be an Amazon Delivery Service Partner.
There may be only so much growth left for Amazon’s current partners, while its delivery needs seem to have no limit in sight.
Delivery partners are considered outside contractors—the drivers who work for them aren’t Amazon employees.
While Amazon is quickly automating other parts of its supply chain, it will continue to need drivers ensuring that packages make it the last mile.
