BORDENTOWN, NJ -- Amazon will soon be adding Bordentown to its list of locations from which is serves the world. The worldwide retail detail announced on Wednesday that it will be opening a delivery station in five New Jersey towns including Bordentown at 2473 Old York Road - Building 1.
Each of Amazon’s new standard delivery stations in Bordentown, Cranbury, Delran, Edison, and Lawrence Township are designed to meet the needs of our electric delivery vehicles. Ranging from the physical layout to the electrical design, these spaces are being optimized to offer flexibility and scale as we move closer toward putting 10,000 electric delivery vehicles on the road in 2022.
“We are excited to continue to invest in the State of New Jersey with new delivery stations that will provide efficient delivery for customers, and create hundreds of job opportunities for the talented workforce. These new delivery stations represent Amazon’s unwavering commitment to safety, technological innovation, and skilled teams who are obsessed with delivering for our customers," said Amazon spokesperson Emily Hawkins.
Amazon has more than 250 delivery stations in the U.S., offering 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. Delivery stations power the last mile of our order process and help speed up deliveries for customers.
Packages are shipped to a delivery station from neighboring Amazon Fulfillment -- such as the one in neighboring Robbinsville -- and Sortation Centers, loaded into delivery vehicles and delivered to customers.
In an effort to give back to local communities in New Jersey, Amazon donated $1.4 million dollars last year to more than one dozen food banks, food pantries, and other organizations in throughout the state working to combat food insecurity including Community Food Bank of NJ, The Food Bank of South Jersey, Newark Working Kitchen, Table to Table, and Franklin Food Bank.
Since 2010, Amazon has created more than 49,000 full- and part-time jobs in New Jersey and invested more than $14.5 billion across the state, including infrastructure and compensation. These investments have contributed an additional $14.7billion to the New Jersey economy and have helped create 30,000 indirect jobs on top of Amazon’s direct hires – from jobs in construction and logistics to professional services. In addition, more than 49,500 independent authors and small and medium businesses in New Jersey are selling to customers in Amazon’s store, creating thousands of additional jobs across the state.
