It looks like Amazon is taking their delivery game to the next level.
They've launched a new program called Amazon Hub Delivery, where small businesses can get paid to deliver packages during the final stretch right to customers' doorsteps. This move aims to enhance delivery speed and efficiency, and the program will initially operate in 23 states, focusing on rural areas and big cities like Seattle, New York, Los Angeles, Boston, and Hoboken.
Now, here's the deal: small businesses don't need any prior delivery experience to apply, but they should be able to make daily deliveries, utilize their existing staff and vehicles, receive packages daily, and securely store them until delivery. While the exact pay remains undisclosed, Amazon estimates that a small business could earn up to $27,000 per year by making deliveries through the program. On average, businesses can expect to receive around 30 packages a day, including weekends but excluding major holidays, which comes out to roughly $2.50 per package.
Amazon is particularly interested in partnering with various businesses like florists, coffee shops, clothing boutiques, gas stations, plumbers, and hair salons, but they're open to considering other types of businesses as well. They aim to team up with 2,500 small businesses by the end of 2023. So, if you're a small business looking to get in on this opportunity, head on over to amazon.com/hubdelivery and give it a shot. It might just be the boost your business needs!
