12:26 PM EST, 02/05/2021 (MT Newswires) -- Amazon.com (AMZN) is working on an incubator program to help entrepreneurs launch trucking businesses that would exclusively transport Amazon freight, according to a report from The Information.

The report says that the need for the incubator is because Amazon is unable to hire enough trucking companies to transport all of the products it sells. The program is looking to train hundreds of entrepreneurs.
