Amazon is helping Veterans start their own delivery business

Amazon wants your drive, leadership skills, hustle, and mission-first attitude

Amazon’s Delivery Service Partner program empowers entrepreneurs to build their own small businesses delivering Amazon packages in their local communities. Delivery Service Partners (DSPs) and their drivers are an integral part of what Amazon refers to as the last mile – transporting packages from their delivery stations to their customer’s front door.

DSPs generally grow to have between 40-100 employees and a fleet of delivery vehicles (which Amazon assists with leasing), ensuring packages get delivered safely and on-time. Since launching the program in 2018, Amazon has empowered more than 800 small business owners across the country who have provided jobs for more than 75,000 drivers.
