Since previous year, some 200 people have begun Amazondelivery start-ups, and the company said it expects "hundreds" more with the added incentives, available in the United States, Britain and Spain. It will also provide the equivalent of three months of the former employee's last gross salary in an effort to help the employees-turned-business-owners to get their package delivery companies off the ground.

The new incentive is an expansion of its Delivery Service Partner Program that allows current Amazon employees a chance to start their own small business delivery company with its backing. It is part of the company's plan to control more of its deliveries on its own, rather than rely on UPS, the post office and other carriers. Employees will be offered discounts on buying "branded uniforms" and Amazondelivery vans for their work.
