It will use physical stores to keep the parcels.
In the wake of rising shipping costs, Amazon is reportedly developing a mobile app called "On My Way," that will allow ordinary people to drop Amazon parcels on their way to their destinations.
The company is expected to team up with real stores in order to store the parcels that can be later sent through those passing en-route.
The service is expected to improve the shopping experience and provide the company with more control over shipping costs, which surged 31% last year.
Amazon is expected to join the ranks of other companies that are working on crowdsourced delivery contract labourers like Uber, Deliv, eBay and Google, reported Wall Street Journal.
Previously, Wal-Mart Stores tried a similar service where it turn customers into package carriers, and Amazon itself teamed up with Yellow cabs and Uber for delivering its parcel for $5 in San Francisco.
Sources familiar with the matter claim that there are many hurdles on the way of such a service, which includes striking deal a with retails to get some space for the deliveries, and the responsibility of the product after it is sent from the company as the carriers will not be registered employees.
The sources claim that Amazon is still working on the fee structure for "On My Way" and it is not known if the company will pay cash or credits to be used in its website.
