Amazon’s new delivery station in Bayonne officially opened on Oct. 20, the same day as the new Starbucks. The facility welcomed associates inside the 188,000 square-foot building to celebrate day one of operations.
“We are looking forward to creating a long-term relationship with Amazon and are excited they have chosen to open up operations within our city,” said Mayor James Davis.
The Amazon delivery station replaces the former site of the Best Foods factory.
“Restoring the old Best Foods site to an active productive use while bringing jobs to our residents is a win for the City and Amazon,” City Council President Sharon-Ashe Nadrowski said.
In celebration of the Bayonne station launch, Amazon donated $3,000 and more than 1,000 items, including food, PPE, and cleaning supplies to the Bayonne Economic Opportunity Foundation, supporting their efforts to help those experiencing food insecurity.
Delivery station on Avenue A
Delivery stations enable Amazon Logistics to add capacity and flexibility to Amazon’s delivery capabilities.
The delivery station at 105 Avenue A will create more than 128 full-and part-time associate jobs, all paying at least $15.75 per hour and offering various benefits packages from day one. For more information, can go online to www.Amazon.com/jobs.
The new delivery station will provide hundreds of driver opportunities for Amazon’s Delivery Service Partners and Amazon Flex drivers.
Delivery stations power the last mile of the order process and help speed up deliveries. Packages are shipped to a delivery station from neighboring Amazon Fulfillment and Sortation Centers, loaded into delivery vehicles, and delivered to customers.
Delivery stations offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to build their own business delivering Amazon packages, and gives independent contractors the flexibility to be their own bosses and create their own schedules delivering for Amazon Flex.

“We are excited to continue to invest in New Jersey with a new delivery station that will provide efficient delivery for customers, and create hundreds of job opportunities for the talented workforce,” said Amazon Spokesperson Emily Hawkins.
