CLEVELAND  — Amazon has decided to cut ties with Inpax Delivery Service, which will impact more than 100 delivery drivers in Ohio.

Amazon said it works with a variety of carrier partners to get packages to customers and regularly evaluates its partnerships to ensure it meets the high bar for safety and customer experience.

The company decided to end its relationship with Atlanta-based Inpax and drivers are being supported with opportunities to deliver Amazon packages with other local delivery service partners, according to Amazon.

According to the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services website, Inpax has laid off 64 drivers in the Cleveland area and 64 drivers in West Chester.

Amazon said it's connecting drivers who were laid off with other carriers in those same areas that have job openings.

News 5 reached out to Inpax, who said it has no comment at this time.
