In 2015, Amazon, the world's largest online shopping company, launched Amazon Flex , a system that outsources the shipping of products to individual drivers in order to improve the efficiency of logistics. It was revealed that Amazon is using its Amazon Flex to notify registered drivers of a new program for delivery from local retailers.

This notice was sent to the driver in Las Vegas, and it was said that it included only orders at some stores of a huge shopping mall of about 180,000 square meters in Las Vegas.

Amazon is also one of the commercial centers of Chandler and Virginia, a prominent suburb of the Arizona metropolitan area, according to Bloomberg , who first reported on Amazon Flex's new program on May 20, 2022. Tysons offers delivery from retail stores in large shopping centers in the area.

Amazon spokeswoman Kate Kudolna said of the new Amazon Flex program: 'The Flex driver will do its job as usual, but will receive orders from retailers rather than Amazon stores and delivery stations. Is another way to connect Amazon sellers and customers through convenient shipping options. '
