Amazon is 20,000 vans closer to replacing the post office
(CNN Money) -- Amazon packages don't deliver themselves. At least not yet. Lucky for Jeff Bezos, a whole lot of people want to help out by running their own delivery business. In July, Amazon announced it would begin recruiting people interested in launching small delivery companies that would work for Amazon, moving packages from fulfillment centers to doorsteps. The company now says tens of thousands of people nationwide have applied for the "Delivery Service Partners," including veterans, families and a former NFL player that Amazon declined to name.
