Amazon has confirmed buying 2,237 delivery vans from Spartan, according to Business Insider. Spartan, based in Michigan, on July 16 said that "North America's leading online e-commerce and fulfillment company" had purchased the vans

Amazon has been ramping up its delivery options in a push to provide one-day delivery for Prime members, which accounts for 10 million items. Last month, at its re:MARS conference, it unveiled a new delivery drone. The e-commerce giant has been working on expanding its own delivery infrastructure, having leased its own planes and broken ground on a new air cargo hub

Spartan said the vans will be built in the second half of 2019 at Utilimaster in Indiana, with a "proprietary walk-in van design" being produced for last-mile delivery requirements.

Amazon didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

The company still retains access to FedEx Ground and international delivery services, even after FedEx Express decided not to renew its express air delivery contract with Amazon in early June.

Amazon also has express delivery capabilities through its contracts with UPS and the US Postal Service.
