Amazon said Thursday its new delivery station in Carteret is officially open for business, welcoming associates inside the 250,000 square-foot building to celebrate its Day One of operation.
The delivery station at 377 Roosevelt Avenue will create more than 200 associate jobs, all paying at least $15.00 per hour, in addition to hundreds of driver opportunities for Amazon’s Delivery Service Partners and Amazon Flex drivers.
Since 2010, Amazon has created more than 34,000 jobs in New Jersey and invested more than $14.5 billion across the state. These investments have contributed an additional $14.7 billion to the New Jersey economy and have helped create 30,000 indirect jobs on top of Amazon’s direct hires – from jobs in construction and logistics to professional services.
Delivery stations power the last mile of our order process and help speed up deliveries for customers. Packages are shipped to a delivery station from neighboring Amazon Fulfillment and Sortation Centers, loaded into delivery vehicles and delivered to customers.
In celebration of the Carteret station launch, Amazon partnered with Communities in Cooperation and distributed more than 400 bags of back-to-school items to the local public school system.
Amazon leverages its scale for good and makes investments to support communities. In addition, more than 49,500 independent authors and small and medium businesses in New Jersey are selling to customers in Amazon’s store, creating thousands of additional jobs across the state.
