Amazon delivery station to open in Mount Olive; hundreds of jobs to fill

Amazon Logistics announced Thursday it is opening a new delivery station in Mount Olive.

The center will be located within the ITC Crossing North shopping plaza on Route 46 North, according to an NJ Advance Media article on the topic.

The New Jersey Delivery Station will increase the speed of last mile deliveries for customers in the Morris County area, company spokesperson Shone Jemmott said in an email.

“Delivery stations enable Amazon Logistics to supplement capacity and flexibility to Amazon’s delivery capabilities to support the growing volume of customer orders,” she said.

Additionally, the center is expected to create “hundreds” of part- and full-time jobs, starting at $15 per hour, Jemmott said.

The site is expected to open in 2020.
