Amazon says it hopes to create more than 400 jobs with the opening of four new delivery stations — specialized processing centers designed to increase the efficiency of deliveries for customers in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
The stations — in Homestead, Kendall, and Miramar as well as Fort Lauderdale — are designed to ease same-day or even two-hour deliveries to residences in high-density neighborhoods.
“We’re continuously innovating to speed up delivery times for our customers,” said an Amazon spokesman via email. “This investment into the build-out of our network in South Florida will make faster and more efficient delivery possible. Customers will see the fastest available delivery options in search, on the product detail pages, and again at checkout.”
Amazon said the jobs start at $15 an hour and come with a variety of benefits. They are also designed to facilitate its Amazon Delivery Service Partners program, which lets individuals start their own small delivery businesses, and Amazon’s Flex independent contractor driver program..
