Amazon Logistics said Wednesday its new delivery station in West Caldwell officially opened for business this week, welcoming associates inside the 160,000-square-foot building to celebrate its first day of operation.
The delivery station at 10 Patton Drive will create more than 130 full- and part-time associate jobs paying at least $15.00 per hour, in addition to hundreds of driver opportunities for Amazon’s Delivery Service Partners and Amazon Flex drivers.
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, loaded into delivery vehicles and delivered to customers.
In celebration of the West Caldwell station launch, Amazon donated $10,000 to MEND Hunger Relief Network, an interfaith network of 20 member food pantries located throughout Essex County providing food to individuals and families in need since 1980.
