Below is a press release from Amazon:
WILMINGTON, MA — Amazon’s new delivery station in Wilmington will officially open for business this week and welcome new associates inside the 100,000 square-foot building to celebrate its Day One of operation.
The delivery station at 110 Fordham Road will create more than 160 full-time and part-time associate jobs, all paying at least $15.00 per hour, in addition to hundreds of driver opportunities for Amazon’s Delivery Service Partners and Amazon Flex drivers.
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 and Sortation Centers, loaded into delivery vehicles and delivered to customers. For more information about open positions, visit https://www.amazon.jobs/.
Delivery stations 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.

In celebration of the Wilmington station launch, Amazon donated $11,000 of essential resources including PPE (face shields, goggles, and face masks), Kindle Fires and music for patient use, and boxed lunches for staff to CareOne at Wilmington, a skilled nursing facility.
