Amazon is strengthening its foothold in New York with a new delivery station that recently opened on Long Island.

The retail delivery giant announced that its 103,000-square-foot delivery station on Precision Drive in Shirley has opened up this week by Amazon Logistics.

According to Amazon, delivery stations mark the last mile of the company’s order fulfillment process.

Packages are transported to delivery stations from Amazon fulfillment centers, sorted, and then loaded into vehicles for delivery to customers, completing the delivery process.

Amazon said that the station will create more than 100 full-time and part-time jobs, paying a minimum of $15 per hour, and offering a variety of benefits packages for employees. It will also create hundreds of jobs for delivery drivers.

Officials said that the delivery stations allow “entrepreneurs the opportunity to build their own business delivering Amazon packages, as well as independent contractors the flexibility to be their own boss and to create their own schedule delivering for Amazon Flex.”
