They claim to be using OSM in some part of their delivery programmes, have collected data and have an editing team adding data.
At Amazon Logistics, we’ve been utilizing OSM in some cases related to our delivery programs. In connection with those delivery programs, we have collected information that we think is valuable to the OSM community such as information about new roads that are not currently in the map today, new data on turn restrictions, and road connectivity, to name a few. When we hear feedback, we’ve been editing to provide that information for the benefit of the entire OSM user community. If you have more questions, please contact email@example.com
Areas of Interest/Geographies
We contribute edits in North America, Great Britain, France, Italy, Spain and Germany. The mappers are Indian nationals.

We have a workflow to organize edits into tasks and queue them to our editors. An editor picks up a task and uses iD to make edits in OSM. We use OSMCha to analyze and review our edits.
We use driver feedback as our primary source in making edits (e.g. driver feedback about road names, turn restrictions, directionality while delivering to our customers). We also use GPS traces from our drivers to identify missing roads. Once a potential missing road has been identified we use OSM resources to confirm if that particular road segment exists before making any edits. In absence of strong evidence, we do not make any edits.
We make an edit only if there is ground data available and all edits are reviewed by a second level reviewer/auditor. We also have a team of GIS experts who audit a random sample of reviewed cases to ensure high standards of our edits to OSM.
