Amazon to open delivery station in Stafford
200,000-square-foot facility will create 100 jobs
Amazon.com Inc. announced Friday it will open a 200,000-square-foot delivery station in Stafford County later this month, creating 100 full- and part-time associate jobs at the station, plus hundreds of driver jobs for Amazon’s Delivery Service Partners and Amazon Flex drivers, according to the company.
The new facility will be located at 25 Strategy Drive in Stafford. Amazon delivery stations, which receive packages from neighboring fulfillment and sortation centers, are the last stop for packages before final delivery to customers.
“This is a major economic development announcement for Stafford County,” said Crystal Vanuch, chairwoman of the Stafford County Board of Supervisors, in a statement. “Amazon is the leader in 21st century retail shopping. This new facility will have a lasting positive impact on our community and workforce.”
Amazon will hold a job fair on Sept. 13 to hire for roles at the new center.
The e-commerce giant also announced two delivery centers career center in Hampton Roads this week. A 111,600-square foot facility opened in mid-August in Hampton and 165,000-square-foot facility in Norfolk in mid-June. This will be the 16th delivery center in Virginia, an Amazon spokeswoman said.
Additionally this week, Amazon announced it has hired 3,000 of the expected 25,000 employees it expects to recruit by 2030 for its multibillion-dollar East Coast H2Q headquarters in Arlington.
