Hub by Amazon now available for installation across the US
Amazon has announced that its “Hub by Amazon” delivery solution for apartments is now available for installation “across the United States”.
As previously reported by Post&Parcel, Amazon first started introducing the system in selected US city.
In a statement issued today (19 June), Amazon reported: “Over 500,000 residents—from New York City to San Francisco, among others—already have access to the Hub by Amazon with thousands more gaining access each month as new Hubs are installed in apartment communities across the country.”
Essentially, the Hub is a parcel terminal that apartment residents can use to receive deliveries from any sender, not just Amazon.
“We’re always striving to make things easier for our customers. Building on Amazon’s expertise in locker solutions, the Hub addresses frustrations from property owners, carriers and residents concerning package delivery,” said Patrick Supanc, director, Amazon Worldwide Lockers and Pickup.
“Now half a million residents in some of the premier properties in the country have access to the Hub, Amazon’s latest delivery solution. The Hub simplifies delivery for residents, offering quick and secure access to packages, day or night. For delivery providers, it offers a single, convenient location for package drop-off and gives property managers time and resources back to focus on other priorities.”
According to Amazon: “Many of the nation’s largest residential property owners and managers, collectively overseeing thousands of apartment properties, have signed up to use the Hub by Amazon, including AvalonBay, Fairfield Residential, Pinnacle, J.P. Morgan Asset Management, WinnResidential, and Equity Residential, among others.”
