Amazon leased 10,000 branded trailers to haul your Prime deliveries.

It launched its own freight brokerage service in late 2016 or early 2017, according to a recent FreightWaves report. Freight brokers match shipments with truckers who can move the goods.

But the truckers who are driving your Amazon packages across the country told Business Insider that Amazon pays too little for them to justify working with the company.

And trucking executives told FreightWaves that contracts with Amazon are “heavily one-sided” towards the e-commerce company.
