    Amazon Selects Bristol, Virginia for a New Delivery Station
    Amazon is announcing a new delivery station in Bristol, Virginia, which is expected to open later this year. The facility will create hundreds of new jobs, paying a starting wage of $15 per hour and offering a variety of benefits offered on the first day of employment.
    The delivery station will be located at 103 Thomas Road in the Bristol, Virginia Industrial Park in an existing building. The facility will power Amazon’s last-mile delivery capabilities to speed up deliveries for customers in the region. Packages are transported to delivery stations from Amazon fulfillment and sortation centers, and then loaded into vehicles for delivery to customers.
    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.

    “When we hosted Amazon officials here in Southwest Virginia less than two years ago, we were working to spark a relationship between them and our region. That visit followed the General Assembly’s approval of legislation to incentivize a second Amazon headquarters in the Commonwealth. I am thrilled that these efforts have provided a foundation for today’s announcement that Amazon will establish a delivery station in Bristol. This is a huge win for Southwest Virginia families and the entire region’s economy.”
