This would seem to be a workaround to avoid USPS, Fedex, and UPS. Pay of $18-$25 an hour may garner some interest. I assume as independent contractors these delivery people will have to provide their own benefits, pay the self-employment tax, and provide their own vehicle. One would hope some serious screening takes place (unlike Uber) to protect the goods. If Amazon starts setting too many standards regarding equipment, delivery windows, etc. they may be in the same boat as other delivery services who use "independent contractors," but where the work rules are such that they are in essence employees.
