[SOUTH FLORIDA] – Amazon announces four new delivery stations in South Florida. The new delivery stations will power the last mile of Amazon’s order process and help increase efficiency of deliveries. Specifically for customers in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. Packages are shipped to delivery stations from neighboring Amazon fulfillment and sortation centers and loaded into vehicles for final delivery to customers.
All four delivery stations will create over 400 new, full-time jobs. Jobs are paying a $15 per hour starting wage and offering a variety of benefits packages from day one.
New Delivery Stations
Each of Amazon’s new delivery stations, including the new delivery stations in South Florida, are now designed to meet the needs of our electric delivery vehicles. Ranging from the physical layout to the electrical design, we are optimizing these spaces to offer flexibility and scale as we move closer toward putting 10,000 electric delivery vehicles on the road in 2022.
Delivery stations also offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to build their own business delivering Amazon packages, as well as independent contractors the flexibility to be their own boss and create their own schedule delivering for Amazon Flex. Amazon is a great place to work with highly competitive pay, benefits from day-one, and training programs for in-demand jobs.
Amazon expects the new sites to open later in 2021.
