Program Management Plan One of the programs Amazon has is partnering with other less than truckload carriers to help move their packages. Due to, Amazon fleet consisting of only 300 units. It is nowhere enough to move all their packages across the world and back. Amazon started giving out contracts to other LTL carriers to help move their packages to their customers. Some of the LTL carries Amazon use is Schneider, Werner Enterprises, FedEx, and YRC Freight. All these carriers have very large fleets. Schneider has a fleet of 10,800 units. Werner Enterprises has a fleet of 7,300 units. FedEx has a fleet of more than 20,000 tractors-trailers. YRC Freight has a fleet of 33,000. Since Amazon has such a huge customer based they have 328 U.S facilities. Roughly, 182 of those facilities operate as DCs, hubs, delivery centers, and inbound/outbound sortation facilities. Amazon plan to continue to expand their facilities and other LTL carriers. Amazon is looking to recruit as many as 30,000 owner’s operator drivers. Amazon main goal is to be able to support their two-delivery commitment with their prime members. As a result, the program is going very well, and it is helping small businesses grow. Currently, Amazon has a headquarters in Seattle Washington. Amazon is looking to build another headquarters in another city. The state of Pennsylvania is providing a very healthy incentive to get their headquarters in their city. According to Pittsburgh Post, at least 1 billion dollars is on the table for Amazon to bring their headquarters to their city. Maryland is willing to put up the highest bid at 8.5 billion dollars to get their headquarters in their city. Finally, New
Team A Course Project Jersey is looking to put up 7 billion dollars to get their headquarters in their city. Amazon have a least 20 states in the running for their new headquarters. The new headquarters will bring 50,000 jobs and at least 5 billion dollars in investments over the next 20 years. Therefore, Amazon have several programs at their organization going on at the same time. Amazon have a huge customer based and very little drivers to move those packages. Amazon is constantly hiring new drivers as contractors to help move their packages across the world. Amazon is looking to open up a second headquarters. Out of the 20 states in the running a few of them are willing to offer billions to get those jobs in their city. Both projects are huge and will need as many resources as possible to finish them.
