Amazon delivery partner Greenwich Logistics is laying off 408 workers after Amazon cut the company's contract.
"We are ending our relationship with Greenwich Logistics, and Amazon is working closely with all impacted drivers to ensure they find opportunities to deliver Amazon packages with other local delivery service partners with little to no disruption to pay," an Amazon spokesperson said.
Several other logistics providers that work with Amazon have also announced layoffs in recent months.
Amazon has canceled its contract with one of its delivery partners in a move that will result in more than 400 layoffs.
The delivery company is Los Angeles-based Greenwich Logistics, which does business under the name 1-800 Courier. It hires drivers to deliver Amazon packages to customers' homes.
In a recent filing obtained by Business Insider, Greenwich Logistics said it's planning to lay off 408 workers from five Amazon delivery stations in California and Pennsylvania.
Amazon confirmed to Business Insider on Wednesday that it has cut its contract with the company, and said it would help impacted delivery drivers find new jobs.
"We work with a variety of carrier partners to get packages to Amazon customers and we regularly evaluate our partnerships," an Amazon spokesperson said. "We are ending our relationship with Greenwich Logistics, and Amazon is working closely with all impacted drivers to ensure they find opportunities to deliver Amazon packages with other local delivery service partners with little to no disruption to pay."
Delivery service partners are companies that Amazon contracts to deliver its packages.
The layoffs will take effect March 20 and impact workers at a delivery station in Sewickley, Pennsylvania, as well as the following sites in California: El Segundo, San Jose, San Leandro, and Richmond, according to a Worker Adjustment and Training Notification filing obtained by Business Insider.
Greenwich Logistics did not respond to requests for comment.
Within the past several months, several other logistics providers that work with Amazon have also announced layoffs.
Letter Ride, Inpax, Urban Mobility Now, and Sheard-Loman Transport announced upward of 2,000 layoffs in October. All four companies deliver Amazon packages to customers' homes. And Pinnacle Logistics, a company that services Amazon's Prime Air fleet, plans to lay off more than 1,600 workers in April as Amazon shifts more jobs in-house, as Business Insider previously reported.
Amazon is rapidly expanding its delivery network, even as it cuts ties with some contractors.
The company said in December that it now employs more than 800 delivery service partners — up from about 100 partners the previous year — who manage 75,000 drivers.
