Amazon to expand delivery efforts with its own fleet of trucks

(NBC) -

Amazon is getting into the delivery game.

The e-commerce giant announced today it'll employ its own fleet of amazon-branded trucks.

A company spokesperson says they'll number in the "several thousands" and will be hauled by third party tractors.

The trucks won't be delivering packages to consumers' doors, but rather, they'll deliver orders around the country between Amazon warehouses.

Amazon says the trucks will be used to help it handle "dramatically increasing" volumes, and help it to deliver items on time.
