Amazon has introduced its Delivery Service Partner (DSP) program in Australia this year, giving entrepreneurs in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane the opportunity to start their own delivery business.

The e-commerce company says its DSP program enables entrepreneurs to upskill in the field of logistics with its support.

“We have long innovated on unique programs and services that empower small businesses and are excited to launch an initiative that will empower aspiring entrepreneurs in the logistics space,” says Amazon Australia’s General Manager of Delivery and Supply Chain, Anthony Perizzolo.

“DSP will create opportunities for Aussies to build and run their own delivery business, in turn creating hundreds of permanent jobs for delivery drivers in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.”

DSP empowers entrepreneurs with little-to-no logistics experience to build a thriving delivery business with low start-up costs and built-in demand, creating new permanent jobs in a safe work environment.

Amazon supports DSPS with access to an extensive range of useful resources including training, technology, and discounts on a suite of assets and optional services, including vehicle leases and insurance.

Delivery Service Partners in Australia will operate a fleet of 20 to 40 delivery vehicles and provide permanent employment opportunities for dozens of delivery drivers in their local area.

“We’ve continued to invest in our Australian operations to meet the needs of our customers and we’re thrilled to launch Prime Free One Day delivery in five new Australian cities just last month,” adds Anthony.

“The expansion of our last mile network with DSP will enable us to continue meeting growing customer demand and enhancing delivery outcomes for customers.”

Since the DSP program launched five years ago in the United States, more than 3500 DSPs have built their own businesses, creating 275,000-plus jobs, and safely delivering more than 20 million Amazon packages a day across 19 countries around the world.
