Amazon has signed 14 leases for delivery stations across New Jersey with plans to open them all by the end of the year.
“We are excited to continue to invest in the state of New Jersey with new delivery stations that will provide efficient delivery for customers, and create thousands of job opportunities for the talented workforce,” says Amazon Spokesperson Emily Hawkins.
According to Hawkins, delivery stations power the “last mile” of the online retail giant’s order fulfillment process. Packages are transported to delivery stations from Amazon fulfillment centers, are sorted, and then loaded into vehicles for delivery to customers.
