Amazon goes Robo, wants to get rid of workers in a nice way; give them 3 months salary and let them lease vans from Amazon to deliver packages that have been packed by robots in the warehouses.

Machines, known as CartonWrap from CMC Srl, pack much faster than humans

They crank out 600-700 boxes per hour, or four to five times the rate of a human

Amazon has considered installing two machines at dozens more warehouses

Doing so would remove at least 24 roles at each one, sources involved have said
Amazon also says it will pay workers up to $10k to quit and start delivery services

Those who take up on the promotion will allow them to lease Amazon's blue vans


Amazon has considered installing two machines at dozens more warehouses, removing at least 24 roles at each one, these people said. These facilities typically employ more than 2,000 people.

That would amount to more than 1,300 cuts across 55 U.S. fulfillment centers for standard-sized inventory.

The report comes on the same day Amazon announced it will offer help to its own employees if they quit and start a business delivering Amazon packages.

Amazon said it would cover up to $10,000 in startup costs for those who take it up on the proposition.
