Amazon opening two new delivery stations in Vaughan
Amazon.com, Inc. has announced plans to create 2,500 jobs across the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, hundreds of which will be in Vaughan.
The company is opening two delivery stations in Vaughan. Amazon recently opened a 209,000-square foot station at 600 Tesma Way. A 193,000-square foot facility will open in 2021 at Keyes Court.
Delivery stations power the last mile of Amazon’s order fulfillment process. Packages are transported from fulfillment and sortation centres to delivery stations to be loaded onto delivery vehicles to reach the end customer. These investments are part of the evolution of e-commerce that has given rise to new distribution centres such as Voila (Sobeys), article.com, FedEx, Home Depot, Costco and the Walmart distribution centre which broke ground this past August.
