Carlstadt NJ, Amazon has announced the opening of three delivery stations later this month in Carlstadt, Lawrence Township, and Edison.
The late July openings include a 464,000-square foot facility at 600 Washington Ave. in Carlstadt, a 289,000-square foot facility at 8 B Court South in Edison, and a 340,000-square foot facility at 10 Princess Road in Lawrence Township.
Amazon aims to open as many as 1,500 small warehouses across the US — many of them in suburban locations , as it raises the stakes in its battle against Walmart, according to a report.
Amazon chief executive Jeff Bezos is investing billions in these new warehouses and in improving the company’s transportation capabilities, Bloomberg said.
As demand for online goods surged in the early days of the pandemic, Amazon struggled to fulfill its two-day delivery promise to Prime members. But it has since hired 175,000 workers who have gotten the company back on track.
