Prime Day 2024 for Amazon Relay carriers

Last year’s Prime Day was Amazon’s biggest yet – like, 375-million-items-sold, big. That created a ton of freight, and a ton of work for those who haul with Relay. The next Prime Day will be here in July – keep reading if you want in on one of the biggest freight events this summer.

What’s Amazon Prime Day?

Prime Day is one of Amazon’s biggest deal events of the year. The first Prime Day launched July 15, 2015 to celebrate Amazon’s 20th birthday. Ever since, this event has been offering truckloads of work for owner-operators and fleet owners of all sizes. And it’s all happening again when Prime Day 2024 returns this July. Want in? Application approval for Relay carriers can take 2-3 weeks, so get started.

What’s Amazon Relay?

Relay offers free access to thousands of Amazon loads that fit Relay carriers’ schedules and equipment types. From dry vans to box trucks, containers to reefers, trucking company owners can book work that keeps your drivers close to home and back in time for dinner – or miles away with nothing but an open road ahead.
