We are responsible for the experience a driver has when they deliver packages for Amazon. We pride ourselves in meeting customer promise, and achieve it through thinking big and innovating. Last mile delivery is a century old problem and we're changing the game. We support delivery programs such as Amazon Flex, a crowd-sourced delivery opportunity for independent contractors, and Amazon Logistics, a delivery service comprised of small and medium sized businesses who deliver Amazon packages to customer's doorstep.
Our mobile offering works in concert with our advanced logistics systems and technology. These technologies allow delivery partners to onboard, schedule delivery times in advance or on demand, and be guided through their deliveries with in-app mapping, navigation and much more. Our ability to engage with, support and provide a world-class experience to both customers and our delivery partners has become more critical as we continue to expand the number of active delivery partners and target faster deliveries to our customers.
