The delivery station at 670 Belleville Turnpike will create more than 80 full and part-time associate jobs, all paying at least $15 an hour, in addition to hundreds of driver opportunities for Amazon’s Delivery Service Partners and Amazon Flex drivers,” said Amazon Logistics spokeswoman Emily Hawkins.

Delivery stations power the last mile of the order process and help speed up deliveries for customers. Packages are shipped to a delivery station from neighboring Amazon Fulfillment and Sortation Centers, before being loaded into delivery vehicles and delivered to customers.

In celebration of the Kearny station launch, Amazon donated $10,000 and more than 1,000 non-perishable food items to the Kearny Food Pantry Network.

The Belleville Turnpike delivery station joins two previously launched stations in the West Hudson municipality: one on 50 Central Ave. and the other at 5 Logistics Dr.
