    Does Amazon Flex route deliveries so that deliveries to businesses are done BEFORE closing time?

    Amazon routing TRIES to send you on a most direct route. Whether it is a circuitous or out and back, but it does not consider closure times. The sorters don’t even know times. I got 11 packages today for downtown Dallas high rises, all closed at 6. They were at the end of a 5-8 block.

    Nothing stops you from running the block however you feel is most efficient for you, or to hit early closures. Your call.

    On the new labels is there any way to see if it is a business delivery?

    Even on the old labels, there was nothing that says it's a business or not unless you see a business name and/or a suite, floor, box, etc.
     
  6. On old labels I used to see a BIG C for commercial

    Nope never seen those. I have a bunch of pictures of labels, some were commercial and none have that big C. E, P and S only.

    IIRC, E was commercial, P was a normal residential, and S was same day. There were other codes but I never knew all of them.

    E is not commercial. I've had plenty of the E that went to apartments and in the evening. I thought it was economy for the cheapest Amazon shipping but it could mean express as told to me by a blue vest. Most but not all were padded envelopes. P is standard shipping that went to residential and commercial.
