Dave Clark, Amazon's senior vice president of worldwide operations, said the new program is not a response to the president, but a way to make sure the company can deliver its growing number of orders.
Amazon's new "Delivery Service Partners" and their staff members won't be employed by the tech company. Amazon did not provide details about the incentives, nor did it explain whether it would pay for business per trip, per mile or per month.
The announcement comes after repetitive criticism of Amazon by President Donald Trump over the company using the US Postal Service to deliver its packages. "This is really about meeting growth for our future", Clark said. The initial $10,000 costs will go to helping them start an independent business that has to begin with at least five delivery vans and ramp up to 20 vans over an undisclosed period of time. 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.
By not relying entirely on partners like FedEx and USPS, Amazon gets more control over the customer experience, better customer service and greater capacity to make more next-day and same-day deliveries, Sebastian said.
Amazon also said it plans to eventually hire hundreds of business owners, who would employ tens of thousands of drivers across the U.S.
Amazon set up a website, Logistics.Amazon.com, where entrepreneurs can apply for the program. Amazon will bear the cost of the fuel as well and this will go down well with the drivers who have been cribbing about the losses they incur due to rising fuel costs. This new Amazon offering continues the company's longtime commitment to enabling small-and-medium-sized businesses to grow with the rising tide of e-commerce.
