Amazon bringing ‘numerous jobs’ to Triangle, to open 2 more ‘shipment stations’
RALEIGH– Amazon is going to be including “hundreds of tasks” at each of two brand-new shipment stations to be opened later this year.
The company has actually signed leases for brand-new centers– which are geared to manage last-mile services and “speed up” deliveries- in Raleigh and Garner.
Jobs when offered will start at $15, stated Amazon Logistics, the group managing the brand-new centers.
“We are delighted to continue to invest in the state of North Carolina with 2 brand-new delivery stations that will offer effective delivery for customers, and develop hundreds of job opportunities for the skilled Triangle labor force. These brand-new shipment stations represent Amazon’s unwavering commitment to safety, technological innovations and experienced groups who are obsessed with providing for our consumers,” stated Ashley Lansdale, a spokesperson for Amazon.
The additions broaden Amazon’s Triangle footprint which already includes a huge warehouse in Garner and other shipment stations in Durham and Cary.
The new areas are:
- 1201 N Greenfield Parkway, Garner
- 4524 New Bern Ave., Raleigh
Here’s how Amazon defines the new operations:
“Delivery stations power the last mile of Amazon’s order satisfaction process. Bundles are transported to delivery stations from Amazon satisfaction and sortation centers, and after that loaded into vehicles for shipment to consumers. There are presently 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 United States.”
These expansions follow Amazon’s current arrangement with Wake Tech to offer training in robotics for workers at the Garner storage facility.
“We are really pleased to hear that Amazon is broadening in Garner. They have currently developed 3,000 brand-new tasks at the company’s satisfaction center on Jones Sausage Road. This brand-new facility will produce numerous additional task chances– which’s fantastic news for Garner.” said Garner Mayor Ken Marshburn in the announcement.
Added Raleigh Mayoer MaryAnn Baldwin: “Amazon’s statement is yet another example of the varied service neighborhood finding success in the area. It is my pleasure to congratulate Amazon on this turning point and growth. The financial investment will create hundreds of new full-time opportunities for Amazon staff members adding to our City’s pandemic healing efforts.”
