Amazon opened three delivery stations in Mercer, Middlesex and Bergen counties in late July, amounting to more than 1 million square feet of new facility space, the e-tailer announced Aug. 2.
A 464,000-square-foot facility opened at 600 Washington Ave. in Carlstadt, a 340,000-square-foot facility opened at 10 Princess Road in Lawrence Township, and a 289,000-square-foot facility opened at 8 B Court S. in Edison.
Packages are shipped to a delivery station from neighboring Amazon Fulfillment and Sortation Centers, loaded into delivery vehicles and delivered to customers. The three new stations will create hundreds of full and part-time jobs in addition to hundreds of driver opportunities.
Amazon has created more than 49,000 jobs in New Jersey and invested more than $14.5 billion across the state since 2010, according to the company. These investments have contributed $14.7 billion to the state’s economy and helped create 30,000 indirect jobs on top of Amazon’s direct hires, the company said.
