EUCLID, Ohio– An Amazon delivery-service partner laid off more than 60 people from its facility in Euclid this month.

The layoffs at Inpax Final Mile Delivery Inc. are expected to be permanent, and affect one manager, three dispatchers and 60 drivers, the company said in a letter.

Nearly 2,000 employees at delivery contracting companies nationwide have lost their jobs in recent weeks. According to Business Insider, Inpax and Urban Mobility Now laid off more than 900 workers, while Letter Ride eliminated about 900.

The companies provide last-mile delivery services and typically work for Amazon exclusively.
