Amazon is touting its delivery service to apartment buildings and complexes as it seeks to expand an initiative it has established in limited regions.
The company called upon multi-unit property owners across the U.S. to request Hub by Amazon.
Residents can have their orders and shipments addressed to their apartment as they normally would, and when their package is delivered to the Hub, whether in a high-rise building or garden-style apartment complex, it is stored waiting for pickup. Amazon noted that it supports Hub with 24/7 support, and it added that Hub can accommodate deliveries from any sender, not just Amazon.
More than 500,000 residents in cities ranging from New York to San Francisco already have access to Hub by Amazon with thousands more gaining access each month as new Hubs are installed in apartment communities across the country, according to the company.
“We’re always striving to make things easier for our customers,” said Patrick Supanc, director, Amazon worldwide lockers and pickup. “Building on Amazon’s expertise in locker solutions, the Hub addresses frustrations from property owners, carriers and residents concerning package delivery. 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.”
