Amazon is doing something that should have shipping carriers nervous: it's delivering its own packages in the metropolitan Boston area. Over the past 2 weeks, we've received Amazon Prime 2-day packages from drivers in unmarked white vans.
The drivers work out of a Dedham, Massachusetts location and are employed by an Amazon contractor (Staff Management / SMX).
From what we were able to piece together, Amazon has at least 2 locations for these new types of in-house deliveries in Eastern Massachusetts, including the Dedham location. Drivers told us Amazon has plans to build more centers to serve New Hampshire and Western Massachusetts.
