Learn more about becoming an Amazon Delivery Service Partner

 

The Amazon Delivery Service Partner (DSP) Program provides a launching pad for those with an entrepreneurial spirit. The opportunity is ideal for those who are looking to run a full-time business, have experience coaching teams, and are comfortable in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment. Running a package-delivery business is hard work and a hands-on operation. DSP owners are responsible for hiring, training, developing, and retaining a team of 40-100 high-performing, safety-focused delivery associates. Amazon is helping entrepreneurs get started by providing a $10,000 Diversity Grant to qualified applicants. If you’ve ever dreamed of owning your own business, this could be the perfect opportunity for you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the startup costs?

A: Assuming that you choose to take advantage of all third-party deals impacting startup costs that have been negotiated by Amazon in connection with the program, we estimate that it will cost DSP owners $10,000 to start their businesses. This is not a fee paid to Amazon, but represents our estimate of what it will cost to cover key startup costs including legal entity formation and licensing, professional services like accountant and lawyer fees, set up supplies such as a laptop and timekeeping software, recruiting costs such as job postings, drug tests, and driver training, and your travel for owner training. Upfront costs for delivery vehicles are excluded from our estimate as there is no upfront cost for delivery vehicles procured through the delivery vehicle leasing program negotiated by Amazon. You can find more information (including assumptions underlying the startup cost estimate) here.

Q: Do I need a logistics background to pursue this opportunity?

A: Absolutely not. The DSP program has many successful owners from a wide variety of backgrounds including military veterans, former sellers on Amazon.com, educators, city council members and many others. Logistics experience is not required.

Q: Where are these opportunities located?

A: Amazon is currently focusing efforts in many cities and states including, but not limited to: Boston, MA, Seattle, WA, Portland, OR, Philadelphia, PA, Los Angeles, CA, San Francisco, CA and several cities within NY/NJ.
