The Newark station is also expected to create “hundreds” of driver opportunities for Amazon’s Delivery Service Partners and Amazon Flex drivers, the company said.

“Delivery stations power the last mile of our order process and help speed up deliveries for customers,” Amazon spokespeople said. “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 Newark station launch, Amazon partnered with Newark Beth Israel Medical Center to provide meals for more than 500 of their employees who have tirelessly been working on the front lines during the pandemic.

“In this critical time where there is tremendous job loss and economic hardship, we are grateful for Amazon’s commitment and presence in Newark,” Mayor Ras Baraka said. “Providing new jobs and career opportunities for our residents will help many Newark families and the city on the road to recovery.”

Amazon also recently opened a delivery station in the nearby township of West Caldwell. That facility is expected to create more than 130 full and part-time jobs, the company said.
