Amazon said Thursday it opened its 231,000-square-foot Carlstadt delivery station this week.
The delivery station at 118 Moonachie Ave. will create more than 300 full and part-time jobs, each paying at least $15.75 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 Amazon’s order process and help speed up deliveries for customers. Packages are shipped to a delivery station from a fulfillment and sortation center nearby, loaded into delivery vehicles and delivered to customers.
“[I]t is my pleasure to welcome Amazon to the Carlstadt business community, and offer my congratulations on the opening of their newest delivery station,” Mayor Robert Zimmerman said of the opening.
“Moving forward, we are excited to form our new local alliance with Amazon. The vision and innovation that Amazon brings to Carlstadt will not only strengthen our business sector, but will also strengthen the quality of life for our residents as well,” Zimmerman said. “Speaking on behalf of the governing body, and the residents of the Borough of Carlstadt, we look forward to a successful partnership with Amazon in the days ahead.”
To coincide with the launch of the Carlstadt station launch, Amazon donated personal protective equipment and snacks to the Carlstadt Fire Department.
