Amazon aims to have more than 2,500 small businesses, ranging from florists to plumbers, deliver packages for it by the end of 2023, the company confirmed Monday.
Partners with the company’s “Hub Delivery” program commit to delivering 20 to 50 packages daily for Amazon customers in their area, using their own staff and vehicles. They will be paid for each package delivered and deliveries can be made “when you have time during the day,” according to the company’s website.
Amazon is actively looking for partners in 23 states, according to a company spokesperson. The company is focusing on rural areas and five large cities — New York City, Boston, Seattle, Los Angeles and Hoboken, New Jersey — for partnerships in particular.Supply Chain Dive
