Jeff Bezos might be thinking about trucks.

Business Insider reports
Amazon is building an app that matches truck drivers with shippers.

The team for this project is scattered around Seattle, Minneapolis, and Amazon’s offices in India. The Minneapolis office in particular is expected to have more than 100 engineers by next year working mostly on this project, according to Business Insider’s source.

In fact, one of the job postings for the Minneapolis office says Amazon is looking for a principal product manager to work on “an exciting and confidential initiative in middle-mile transportation organization.”

Another job posting for a software-development engineer in Minneapolis says Amazon’s Transportation Technology division is building software that optimizes the “time and cost of getting the packages delivered.”

It’s unclear why Minneapolis has become such an important part of this project. But the city is close to the headquarters for C.H. Robinson, Target, and Best Buy, possibly making it easy to hire people away from those companies.

Jeff Bezos might be thinking about hotels.
