Amazon said Tuesday its delivery station in Logan Township will officially open for business this week and welcome associates inside the 368,000-square-foot building to celebrate its Day One of operation.
Located at 2320 Center Square Road, the location will create more than 180 full- and part-time 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.
Delivery stations focus on the last mile of the Amazon 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 Logan Township station launch, Amazon donated smart TVs, video projectors, laptops, sports and recreation equipment, and craft and cleaning supplies to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Gloucester County. The donated supplies will help facilitate the continuation of learning and physical activity as many of the program’s normal activities, including care for children ages 5-13, have been reduced or eliminated due to COVID-19.
“This new project demonstrates the ongoing contributions Amazon is making to Logan Township, which go beyond the immediate economic impact we will see with the opening of this new facility,” said Logan Township Mayor Frank Minor. “[T]hey also participate in our Logan Township Food Assistance Program, an initiative that has been crucial to our residents, especially now as we combat the COVID-19 pandemic. We are excited to continue growing the relationship between Amazon and Logan Township and thank them for their continued investment in our community.”
In June, Amazon said it signed various leases in an effort to open 14 delivery stations in New Jersey in 2020, of which the Logan Township facility was among.
