HANOVER, Md. (WJZ) — Amazon has signed seven new leases in Maryland for their new delivery stations.
The locations will be in Edgewood, Glen Burnie, Hagerstown, Hanover, Lanham, Upper Marlboro and Waldorf.
Delivery stations power the “last mile” of the company’s fulfillment process. Packages are taken to the delivery stations from Amazon fulfillment centers, sorted and then loaded onto vehicles for delivery.
“Amazon Logistics has signed various leases in an effort to open seven delivery stations in Maryland in 2020. We are excited to continue to invest in the state of Maryland with new delivery stations that will provide efficient delivery for customers, and create thousands of job opportunities for the talented workforce,” said Amazon spokesman Shone Jemmott.
Delivery stations also offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to build their own business delivering Amazon packages as well as giving contractors the flexibility to be their own boss.

German online takeaway food company Delivery Hero reported a near-doubling of orders in the second quarter as lockdowns due to the coronavirus crisis prompted people to order meals from home, sending its shares to a record high.
In June, despite easing of lockdown restrictions in some countries, order growth was up 104%.
In Asia, the company's largest market, orders almost quadrupled to 157 million euros. Orders increased by 46% in Europe and were up 111% in the Americas.
In the Middle East and North Africa region, orders fell 6%, hurt by ongoing curfews in Kuwait and Jordan.
Jefferies analysts described the acceleration in order growth as "remarkable", while analysts at Bankhaus Lampe said they believed the third quarter would also be very strong.
By 0801 GMT shares had jumped 5.3% to 103.15 euros, a record high.
Delivery Hero is due to report its final results on July 28.Related Tags
