Amazon Logistics has signed various leases in an effort to open two new delivery stations in the Triangle. The new stations will power Amazon’s last-mile delivery capabilities to speed up deliveries for customers in the Triangle. Each delivery station will create hundreds of full-time jobs, starting at $15 per hour and offering a variety of benefits from day one. We expect these new sites to open in 2021.
The new delivery stations will be located in Garner and Raleigh. Addresses are as follows:
- 1201 N Greenfield Parkway, Garner, NC
- 4524 New Bern Ave., Raleigh, NC
About Amazon Delivery Stations:
Delivery stations power the last mile of Amazon’s order fulfillment process. Packages are transported to delivery stations from Amazon fulfillment and sortation centers, and then loaded into vehicles for delivery to customers. There are currently three Amazon delivery stations in operation in the Triangle and eight in the state of North Carolina. Amazon has more than 250 delivery stations in the US.
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.

Each of Amazon’s new delivery stations, including these new sites, 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.
