In 2018, we launched our Delivery Service Partner program to share our experience in operations and logistics to aspiring entrepreneurs. The program empowered these entrepreneurs to build their own last mile delivery companies from the ground up with the support infrastructure, technology, and a suite of exclusive services. This has enabled many to create thriving small businesses and deliver for customers.
Since launching in 2018, there are now more Delivery Service Partners across the U.S., Canada, UK, Spain, and Germany who have created over 100,000 jobs in their communities. They’ve delivered more than 2.2 billion packages worldwide and generated over $5 billion in revenue for their small businesses.
These grants are designed to help reduce the barriers to entry for Black, Latinx, and Native American entrepreneurs. We’re committing $1 million toward funding startup costs, offering $10,000 for each qualified candidate to build their own businesses in the U.S. With the launch of this grant program, we’re investing in building a future for diverse business owners to serve their communities.
