Third-party report: Amazon has helped create more than 100K jobs, contributed $35B to GDP in N.J. since 2010

Amazon has had an enormous economic impact in New Jersey since arriving in the state in 2020 — investing more than $34 billion while helping to create more than 100,000 jobs and add $35 billion to the state’s Gross Domestic Product, according to a third-party report.

Amazon’s investment total includes infrastructure and compensation to employees.

A 2023 Economic Impact Report provided by Keystone Strategy, a third-party consultancy, said Amazon has created more than 46,000 direct jobs here and that its $34 billion in investments support an additional 57,000 indirect jobs across the state, in fields such as construction and professional services.

“We’re proud to see how our investments are able to unlock new economic opportunity for millions of people across the U.S.,” Holly Sullivan, vice president of worldwide economic development at Amazon, said.

“We’re providing jobs with competitive pay and great benefits, including free upskilling opportunities. We see every day how our investments have positive downstream effects for so many local economies, from big cities to small towns. Whether it’s at a fulfillment center, delivery station, corporate office or retail store, every job created is an example of Amazon’s economic engine at work.”

Amazon has dozens of fulfillment centers, delivery stations and same-day delivery sites throughout the state.
