“Amazon Logistics has signed various leases in an effort to open 14 delivery stations in New Jersey in 2020,” said Amazon spokeswoman Emily Hawkins.
“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.”
The locations span throughout the state, such as Avenel, West Deptford, Teterboro, and Mahwah.
In Hudson County, while the exact addresses aren’t available, Jersey City will see a logistics site open on Thomas McGovern Drive, with locations come to both Central Avenue and Logistics Drive in Kearny.
According to Hawkins, these delivery stations “power the last mile of our order fulfillment process.”
Packages are transported to delivery stations from Amazon fulfillment centers, sorted, and then loaded into vehicles for delivery to customers.
Collectively, the stations will create thousands of full-time and part-time jobs, paying a minimum of $15 per hour and offering a variety of benefits packages from day one.
Amazon currently has more than 150 delivery stations in the country.
