Amazon to Help Entrepreneurs Create Businesses to Deliver Packages

Amazon is looking for people to create businesses to deliver their packages. 

Udit Madan is the director of Amazon's Worldwide Last Mile. He says the company will help entrepreneurs build their own company delivering Amazon packages. 

"We're creating an opportunity for entrepreneurs start their own delivery business with as little as $10,000," said Madan. "They can earn up to $300,000 in annual profit per year."

The business is moving away from UPS and Fedex. Instead, they will let drivers lease blue vans with the Amazon logo stamped on it, buy uniforms for drivers and get support from Amazon. 

"Over the next few years, we expect to create hundreds of new small businesses," said Madan. "They are going to creat tens of thousands of delivery jobs across the United States. Those jobs will be full-time jobs. They'll come with competitive pay and time off and full health benefits."

With these vans on the road, Amazon said more shoppers would be able to track their packages on a map, contact the driver or change where a package is left.
