Amazon Logistics: Innovation or Exploitation?

Is Amazon Logistics good for consumers, bringing the delivery industry into the 21st century? Or is it taking workers’ rights back to the 19th?

In September 2018, Amazon announced that it was buying 20,000 brand new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans to help expand its Amazon Logistics division in the U.S. That doesn’t come cheap, and it’s a lot of wheels – and people – to take care of.

How many new employees, sorting facilities and garages will Amazon need for those 20,000 vans? Actually, they won’t need any at all. Instead, Amazon is encouraging people to start their own independent delivery companies, lease the vans from them, and deliver their packages for them.

Amazon Logistics isn’t structured like a traditional carrier, and it doesn’t perform like one either. It delivers seven days a week, and orders can be with the buyer the same day that they were placed. Often, packages are left outside homes, and no signature is taken as proof of delivery. That’s a lot of industry norms being broken.
