Amazon Logistics plans to open two new delivery stations in the Birmingham, AL metro area, creating hundreds of jobs and speeding up deliveries for the internet retailer’s customers in the region. Amazon expects both facilities to open in 2021.
One of the delivery stations will be located at Birmingham’s long-vacant Century Plaza Mall, which will be redeveloped. The other station will open at a location at Lakeshore Parkway and Alabama 150 in Bessemer, where other significant distribution and logistics projects have landed recently.
Amazon said the delivery stations at Birmingham and Bessemer will create hundreds of full- and part-time associate jobs, all paying at least $15 per hour, in addition to hundreds of driver opportunities for Amazon’s Delivery Service Partners and Amazon Flex drivers.
“We are excited to continue to invest in the state of Alabama with two new delivery stations that will provide efficient delivery for customers and create hundreds of job opportunities,” said Amazon spokesperson Own Torres. “These delivery stations represent Amazon’s unwavering commitment to safety, technological innovations and skilled teams who are obsessed with delivering for our customers.”
