Arlington’s Amazon delivery station is set to open later this year at 2400 Centennial Drive, just north of Division Street and west of SH 360.

Amazon announced six new delivery stations in Dallas-Fort Worth today, including one that will create new full-time and part-time job opportunities in Arlington.

The new delivery stations will power the last mile of Amazon’s order process and help increase efficiency of deliveries for customers. Packages are shipped to delivery stations from neighboring Amazon fulfillment and sortation centers and loaded into vehicles for final delivery to customers. Arlington’s Amazon delivery station is set to open later this year at 2400 Centennial Drive, just north of Division Street and west of SH 360.

“Arlington is honored to have been selected for one of Amazon’s new delivery station. With close proximity to Dallas/Fort Worth Airport and several major interstates, our city is ideally located to help companies like Amazon deliver their products quickly and efficiently across the country. This investment is a welcome addition to our community and will create hundreds of good-paying jobs for our residents,” said Arlington Mayor Jeff Williams.

The new delivery stations, also set to open in Mansfield, Balch Springs, Fort Worth and McKinney, will create hundreds of full- and part-time jobs, pay a $15 per hour starting wage and offer a variety of benefits packages from day one, the company said.

“We are excited to continue our investment in Texas with new delivery stations across DFW that will create hundreds of new job opportunities and provide faster and more efficient delivery for customers. We look forward to continuing our growth in Texas and want to thank local and state leaders for their support in making these projects possible,” said Amazon spokesman Daniel Martin.

Delivery stations also offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to build their own business delivering Amazon packages, as well as independent contractors the flexibility to be their own boss and create their own schedule delivering for Amazon Flex.
