The Delivery Service Partner (DSP) programme provides an opportunity for strong leaders who are passionate about starting their own business. With low start-up costs, built-in demand, and access to Amazon’s technology and logistics experience, this is an opportunity to build and grow a successful package delivery business. Joining a robust community of small businesses, you will help deliver thousands of parcels to customers every day.
