Is Amazon the new UPS?

According to a recent article from Recode, Amazon is now moving into the logistics and transport business.    Their new program offers Amazon-branded delivery vans and uniforms, as well as coaching and training for new “partners” – all for less than a $10,000 investment.  Certainly, Amazon sales continue to rise, accounting for 4% of all retail sales in the USA in 2017, so partner companies delivery for Amazon should have ample opportunity to grow their business in the future.   Here are  more details on becoming an “Amazon Delivery Service Provider.”

And then, of course, there’s Amazon Flex, a relatively new program allowing individuals to “be their own boss, set their own schedule” and join the “gig” economy, with the power of Amazon behind them.
