Amazon Prime Delivery job: Amazon promises massive profits to startups

039;s new program to help entrepreneurs build businesses delivering Amazon packages including $1 million to fund startup costs for military

Amazon says the earning potential for successful owners is as much as $300,000 in annual profit operating a fleet of 40 vehicles. The online retailer is committing $1 million towards funding startup costs for military veterans.

Amazon delivery long has relied on the U.S. Postal Service, United Parcel Service (UPS) and FedEx (FDX).

A brochure about the new program details everything that interested would-be shipping magnates will need to launch their delivery business, and that means purchasing vans, handheld devices, uniforms, vehicle insurance, fuel cards, and hiring drivers. Amazon also now lets individual drivers use their personal vehicles for deliveries through its "Flex" program, which has been criticized recently.

In addition, Amazon plans to offer discounts for costs incurred to run the business on recurring expenses: fuel, insurance and benefits programs.

"We are going to offer a lot of support to these new businesses", Madan said, "so people who may not have logistics experience or experience building their own small business will have access to Amazon's technology". These businesses will then be responsible for delivering the company's packages to customers, rather than having another service handle it.

Amazon also did not say what it actually pays program participants for those deliveries. He said the new delivery program will help meet the growth in e-commerce.

Recently, the company has come under fire from President Donald Trump who tweeted that Amazon should pay the U.S. Postal Service more for shipping its packages.

It's the latest attempt by Amazon to gain greater control of the delivery network at the core of its Prime business, which ships 5 billion packages a year globally.

The company has been growing its fleet of delivery providers, small contractors with as few as 10 white Amazon vans.

"This would give even more bargaining power to Amazon by making the worker reliant on them for wages, schedules and stability", said Stephanie Luce, a professor of labor studies at the City University of NY. "I had prior experience running my own business but not in logistics", said Abimbola, who participated in a media event Wednesday in Seattle and whose statements were included in Amazon's announcement of the project.

It could also improve Amazon's relationship with customers.

Amazon's dependence on services such as USPS, UPS and FedEx, which deliver the bulk of its packages, also has downsides.
