    Yes, those are the ones I saw in Virginia but they looked gray. I saw an article that said Amazon staff were offered $10K and 3 months salary to start their own logistics company presumably using these vans. 2018 - Amazon launches a last-mile delivery program powered by entrepreneurs – TechCrunch

    2019 with 3 months salary - Amazon offers employees $10K and 3 months’ pay to start their own delivery businesses – TechCrunch

    Following news of Amazon’s plans to reduce Prime shipping down to one day, the company this morning announced an expansion of its Delivery Service Partner program, which now includes a new incentive that encourages existing Amazon employees to start their own package delivery company. The partner program, first announced last year, includes access to Amazon’s delivery technology, hands-on training and a suite of other discounts for assets and services like vehicle leasing and insurance. For employees, it now includes a $10,000 incentive, too.

    The retailer says it will fund startup costs up to $10,000, as well as the equivalent of three months of the former employee’s last gross salary, to give the employees the ability to get their new business off the ground without worrying about a break in pay.

    Apparently amazon is attempting to purchase an obnoxiously large building in my area, but due to codes its been a slow process.

    Our letter carriers have mostly sprinter vans or a minivan. The standard LLV (in my area) are becoming less and less. Too many packages.

    I don't know if this is normal or not, but on my street we often see a separate LLV just for parcel delivery, in addition to our normal letter carrier.

    I’ve seen quite a few of the Amazon tractors but we have a couple fulfillment centers around here. We also have two different target DC’s and yep we lost that business.

    Might of been a CCA making those parcel deliveries. The PO tends to use and abuse CCA's, especially around Peak Season, because they're "Non Career" employee's. CCA's are basically Letter Carriers version of PSE's.

    Letter Carriers use to have PTF's back in day before they switched it to CCA. Pretty soon, all of them LLV's will be phased out eventually once the PO awards a $6.3 billion dollar government contract to build the new NGDV (Next Generation Delivery Vehicles) sometime in 2020.....

    New U.S. Postal Service truck contract worth $6.3 billion may be awarded in 2020

    On a side note...even though it's illegal to tip or give gifts during the holidays to a Letter Carrier because they're federal employees, tip them anyway. They deserve it. You couldn't pay me enough to do what they do on a daily basis. Much respect to those guys...as well as the UPS and FedEx delivery guys.

    Cremated remains have to be CLEARLY labeled. After all...we are talking about a human being that once lived and breathed.

    This video shows how to send cremated remains.....

    We have an anatomical education program here in town. We’ll pick up a APC slap full of human remains.

    Plus you get them occasionally from the stations.
